  • Numbness and tingling

  • Pain with light touch or other stimuli that are usually not painful

“I like AZ Pain Doctors because they prepped me carefully and explained everything. I had this nerve pain down the back of my left leg but after 3 injections in 3 weeks, it was gone. It has been over 2 years and I am ready for another visit. They are careful and clean. And after it's over, you visit the rest area room and get a treat and some OJ!”

“I felt so much pain from a crushed nerve and herniated disc post surgery, I didn't think I was ever going to get relief. Then Dr. Pico came into my life and is the only pain management office I will go to and/or refer my friends and family to. Never had any issues with making appts. Everyone is professional and caring. Don't know what I would do without them.”
