As a board-certified and fellowship-trained interventional pain specialist, David Adrian Olvera, MD, enjoys hearing how his work helps patients overcome chronic pain and improve their lives and relationships.
“It’s rewarding when you have family members come back and say, ‘Before we met you, it was difficult to be around this person. Now we have them back and we enjoy them again.’ They get their quality of life back that was missing for years.”

Dr. Olvera performs injection therapy for patients who are suitable candidates, along with nerve blocks, epidural injections (under fluoroscope when necessary for patient safety), spinal cord simulator trials and other advanced treatments to relieve pain.

“I provide personal care and make sure patients feel that their needs are always addressed at every visit.”

Dr. Olvera takes time to sit down with you & explain the issue & treatment plan for your best outcome. His nurse Brent is wonderful too. I recommend this office to anyone that I feel would benefit.

Dr. Olivera is very intelligent, caring, understanding. Dealing with severe pain he did a great plan with me and explain my situation on how to relieve my pain to no pain. Thank you Dr. Olivera for for great work. Your a blessing.



Dr Olvera is one of the best Drs I have met. He really does go beyond my expectations. I trust him fully with my needs and has never made me feel like I was just another patient to him.. I am able to talk to him about any concerns and he explains them all to the best of his ability. If there is anything that he can't answer right then he will go above and beyond to get the right answers for you .. I will always recommend him to anyone that needs to have a trusted compassionate doctor for their pain management! The staff is just as amazing as he is. Very friendly and attentive. I can not say enough good things about this place.
