Seattle Pain Center Medical Corp., a specialty medical practice doing business here as Spokane Pain Center, has opened a clinic in Spokane Valley, says Jodi Hoffman, the practice manager based at the new clinic.
Spokane Pain Center is located just east of the Valley Hospital campus in a 5,200-square-foot medical office building at 1414 N. Vercler that the practice recently bought, Hoffman says.
The practice offers an individualized approach to pain care, with an emphasis on maximizing functionality and reducing reliance on opioid medications, she says.
"We do see patients with a wide variety of conditions from chronic to acute pain, including head-and-neck and back pain, diabetic neuropathy, and cancer pain," Hoffman says. The clinic's services and treatments include pain consultations, medication management, epidurals, selective nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal-cord stimulation.
Patients have to be referred to Spokane Pain Center by a primary care provider, she says.
The Spokane Pain Center is Seattle Pain Center Medical Corp.'s first clinic in Eastern Washington. It also operates clinics in Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, Renton, and Olympia.
Hoffman says Dr. Frank Li, of Seattle, who owns the practice, will see patients at the Spokane clinic weekly. The Spokane Pain Center also has a full-time physician assistant and a three-person support staff.
Li, who has been practicing medicine for 13 years, is board certified in pain medicine and anesthesiology. He started Seattle Pain Center in 2008 after moving there from private practice in Beverly Hills, Calif. While there, he also taught general and advanced pain medicine to medical residents and fellows at the University of Southern California and the University of California at Los Angeles.
Levi McCormick and Vic Overholser, both agents with the Spokane commercial real estate brokerage SDS Realty Inc., handled the real estate transaction.
