Douglas J. Spiel

unnamedDr. Spiel’s unique clinical background has enabled him to view the practice of interventional pain through a broader perspective. By elevating the diagnosis and treatment of those in pain to an art form, he is uniquely qualified to blend the objective and subjective components of a patient’s signs and symptoms to arrive at a plausible and treatable diagnosis.
Dr. Spiel is widely recognized as an expert in numerous treatment modalities and has lectured both throughout the country and abroad. He credits the numerous physicians worldwide that he has studied with as providing the necessary scaffold to build his current diverse skill set. Dr. Spiel believes that “only by cross training with multiple specialties can any one physician bridge the necessary knowledge required to effectively treat the complexities of the human condition.”
The American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians examines and certifies appropriate applicants as diplomats in interventional pain procedures. Dr. Spiel was the first among the few radiologist and interventional pain specialists on the list to be certified by this prestigious board.
