Michael Dykes, M.D.

"I have practiced medicine for nearly two decades and have treated thousands of patients.  I truly enjoy the patient/physician relationship and appreciate that people trust me to help them with their pain care.  Pain management is challenging but rewarding at the same time, because you are making a difference in someone's life.  I find it especially gratifying to help folks with chronic pain who have failed multiple therapies.  My patients would describe me as understanding, patient and focused.  I listen to their needs and together we set goals to improve their quality of life."
