Dr. Richard Noren is a board-certified anesthesiologist and pain management specialist. His practice is dedicated to the treatment of pain, particularly back and neck pain, complex regional pain syndromes, other forms of neuropathy and arthritis. He offers the latest in pain management care, including epidural injections, nerve injections, and implantable nerve stimulators to relieve chronic pain. He also provides medical consultations for the insurance industry.
Originally an anesthesiologist, he decided to become a pain management specialist because he wanted a more one-on-one, long term relationship with his patients. His current practice is now limited to pain management only. Dr. Noren brings true compassion and empathy when caring for patients. He takes time to listen, understand the condition fully and provide the best, safest treatment plan for each individual. The goal for all of his patients is to help them understand their treatment options, participate in choosing the best plan to relieve their pain, and ultimately improve their ability to function.
Dr. Noren enjoys an active lifestyle including skiing, hiking and golf. These activities give him an added appreciation of the importance of healthy, pain-free joints and help fuel his determination to improve his patients’ conditions.
Compassionate care isn’t a relationship between the wounded and the healer, but a relationship between equals.
