Advanced Pain Management Center opened its doors in 2000 and has served as a resource for the community and healthcare providers since that time. Sometimes it’s only a consult, sometimes just an injection, but more often than not, people are referred for evaluation and ongoing treatment. Our approach to pain issues is to employ a variety of treatment options. For instance, after a comprehensive evaluation the treatment plan is likely to include:
- Diagnostic and therapeutic injections
- MLS Laser Therapy and Orthotic Bracing
- Balance assessment and training
- Psychological assessment
- Urine drug screening
- Advanced therapies including neuromodulation (spinal cord stimulation), intrathecal infusion pump therapy, and regenerative therapies
I am very satisfied with treatment I receive at this clinic. Dr. Fiks has the latest cutting edge equipment. Mr. Shore is great, and full of knowledge. The entire physical therapy team is awesome. Dealing with chronic neck, shoulder and rib pain has finally been addressed. Insurance billing has been easy, I recommend this clinic to anyone who has pain resulting from past injuries. I have heard from other patients that for more recent injuries, like car accidents, they are the best to prevent further deterioration of joint and quicker recovery.
This is a really good place to get professional care and to get your back problems taken care of.
I've been a patient here for more than 4 years now, and I love these folks. Not only have they helped me with some ongoing health issues, they have been great to work with overall. From the front desk staff, nurses, doctors, PAs - everyone there treats me like I'm part of the family. The thing I most appreciate is that they have a lot of integrity, and do not recommend over medicating, they've helped me find solutions that work for me. I highly recommend.
After having a really bad experience with another pain management doctor in Portland it was a huge relief to have such a positive experience with Dr. Fiks. Everyone in the office that I have dealt with has been fantastic, particularly … at the front desk. I see a number of doctors and I always look forward to my appointments because of …. Dr. Fiks assessed my heath, determined that the original pain doctor's course of treatment would not have provided the relief needed and steered me in another direction. My medications are nearly perfect, and I am finally able to live my life again.
Felt very respected here. Not many places in Oregon do medication pain management and this is the best place I've found. They offer physical therapy along with shoulder injections and back injections that I would have never thought to get but virtually took away all my back pain. Appointments are efficient, and you get the feeling that the people at this office really care about you and are invested in your life.
Advanced pain management was very good at the front desk
and Dr. Fiks and his team helped my pain tremendously.
WHAT WE’VE ACHIEVED
APMC takes pride in the fact that we have created a treatment environment that correlates with the concept of a medical home but for pain issues. Patients can see their interventional pain specialist, get their labs done, attend physical therapy and have interventional procedures performed all in one setting. Our patients have no need to drive across town from one appointment to another.
Other factors we believe are important in our achievement include:
- Friendly and skilled staff.
- Convenient location with great parking.
- Close to public transportation.
