CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — If you have ever walked into a doctor’s office and felt like nothing more than the next transaction, you are not alone.

At Desert Pain Specialists — Southern Utah’s premier interventional pain management team — they understand the importance of fostering patient relationships with their providers.

“I can’t tell you how many times people have walked into my office and told me that they have felt like they were just a number in a doctor’s office,” Dr. Rachel Allen said, adding that it’s certainly not the case for her. “You are my No. 1.”

Getting to know their clients and developing better relationships is vital to their mission at Desert Pain Specialists — a mission to better meet the needs of the patient, understand their concerns and come up with a treatment plan that is best suited for them and their families.

Allen’s colleague at the clinic, Dr. Joseph Court Empey, has been serving Southern Utah for over 10 years, and he said he loves finding solutions to help his patients. One question he said he receives almost daily is about new ways to treat back pain.

“My best advice is to strengthen your core,” he said. “Use exercises such as planks and bird dogs to strengthen your abdomen and back muscles to save the pressure on your discs.”

All of the staff at Desert Pain Specialists appreciate the trust the community has given them to care for their loved ones. They continue to learn new ways to answer the patients’ medical needs.

“I want to make you feel as comfortable and valued as possible,” Allen said.
