“Pain is a top health concern, especially among the elderly. Patients do not have to live with pain, when there are so many treatment modalities available to them," said Mayda Antun, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of IMC. “Our multidisciplinary team approach combines traditional and innovative treatments, that will have a positive impact on our patients’ quality of life.”
"We are very excited to be able to offer this service to our members who meet the medical criteria for pain management. Many of our patients are senior citizens and suffer from joint pain and arthritis," said William C. Lamoreaux, Chief Executive Officer of IMC. “Providing these services through a multi-disciplinary team in our centers allows us to offer a more comprehensive clinical solution for these patients suffering from joint pain. We expect this program to be incredibly popular with our patients.”
IMC Medical Centers now offers a comprehensive set of specialty services including pain management, dental, neurology, cardiology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, radiology, dermatology, optometry, women’s wellness and podiatry services.
