Under the direction of Dr. Gary L. Sannes, the team at Pacific Empire Physical Medicine & Healthcare provides the necessary chiropractic and physical medicine patients need. Our team also includes Office Liaison Suzette Machado, MA, and Office Manager Brenda Tucker, MA. Working together, along with other team members, we strive to help patients continue to lead healthy and comfortable lives. We understand that chiropractic care may involve multiple appointments and we will be able to plan a patient’s treatment schedule accordingly. Our team of professionals will help ensure that the patient remains comfortable during the treatment process. From cold laser therapy to physical therapy and every treatment in-between, we can help patients lead a better life that is free of pain. Our team will also go over all of the steps in the treatment process and ensure the patient understands what is happening.
We offer patients treatment with a variety of services including cold laser therapy, massage therapy, physical therapy, spinal decompression and non-surgical back pain treatment. We design our treatment around the needs and condition of our patients. Since each patient is unique, we will customize the treatment as we need to. We understand that while many people struggle with back or neck pain, there are different levels of pain and a variety of symptoms that a patient can have. We offer treatment for sciatica pain, sports injuries, spinal pain, pinched nerves, scoliosis, knee pain, neuropathy, auto injury, medical weight loss, shoulder pain, neck pain and herniated discs. Since we treat patients of varying ages from children to adults, we will personalize our services to create age-appropriate treatments for each patient. We will also change a treatment plan as necessary during the treatment if there are any changes to the patient's condition.
We strive to provide a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere from the moment patients walk in the door. We will make sure to answer any questions and address all concerns that patients may have. Upon scheduling an appointment, we will need new patients to fill out a “New Patient Form” either at home or in our office. Patients can print the form out at home and fill out before arriving for the appointment or fill one out at our office on the day of the appointment. For new patients, we will need current insurance, medical history, current health condition (reason for seeking treatment) and other information about the patient. During the appointment, we will take all of this information into account and develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient. It can be easy for patients to assume that chiropractic issues just need a massage and some painkillers for treatment. However, many chiropractic issues require multiple appointments for treatment and painkillers will only mask the symptoms. We can provide the necessary treatment to help produce permanent results without the need for consistent medication.
