Dr. De La Pena, Makes you feel like a family member not just a patient or number. The complete office staff is 100 % professional and caring above and beyond. Dr De La Pena

and Nurse practitioner Marie are amazing. Their medical assistants, explain each and every step, ask questions every visit to see if any change in pain or reaction to medication has taken place as well as any questions to Doctors. The stigma that follows pain medication recipients is taken away day one in meeting Dr. De La Pena , you feel like a person in need of medical attention not a criminal. The team of Dr. De La Pena should be the staple of Pain Management not the exception. She takes the PAIN not only from you but from the Pain Management experience. I can't say enough good.. I am blessed i found her....

Dr. De La Pena is the best pain management doctor I have ever met. She also works well with patients with Alzheimers. My husband has seen

her for years and stays virtually pain free. This keeps him from having surgery which could damage his precious memory even more. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for your help!!!! You are truly an angel!!!

Dr. De La Pena is like a living breathing little angel. I have been going to her now for about 5 months. She is very kind, professional and really knows

what she is doing. I have had major pain problems with my knees and ankles after surgeries and this little lady has been a God send. Her staff is always pleasant, kind and willing to help. If you are in pain make an appointment at her office. There is not one doubt in my mind she will help you.

Dr. De La Pena is excellent! She is highly skilled in pain management and is ahead of the curve in using new techniques and procedures such as amniotic stem cell injections . She and her staff make sure that patients feel valued and secure. The office is immaculate and well-run. Dr. De La Pena is thorough and insightful. Her patients leave her office feeling better and educated about the treatment they received, as well as understanding prognosis and future treatments.
