David S. Mills, MD

Excela Health Medical Group Provider

Philosophy of Care

My ultimate goal, as both a pain physician and physiatrist, is to improve every patient's ability to participate in her/his daily activities and recreation by identifying and managing underlying pain generators. Being trained in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, I appreciate the significance of addressing each patient's individual lifestyle and goals. I utilize comprehensive physical exam findings, diagnostic imaging, and functional testing to identify underlying pain generators. Then by working together with each patient, we create a personalized, multidisciplinary treatment plan. My sub-specialization in Pain Medicine provides me the skills to offer a variety of targeted interventional pain procedures, including epidural steroid injections, cervical/lumbar radiofrequency ablations, and spinal cord stimulation, in addition to non-procedural approaches. The goal of each personalized treatment plan is controlling pain and ultimately improving patient function. ***

    I have dealt with many health care profesionals the past 4 years for my health condition. Dr. Mills is by far the most caring person I have encountered. He not only takes the time to listen to me at my visits but also researches information about my condition, calls other doctors to discuss it and most times, personally calls me himself to give me information. I know I can always count on him to treat me with respect and professionalism. I wish all doctors were as caring and considerate as him! I have always been treated well by the entire staff when at my appointments or on the phone with someone.

    Dr. David S. Mills is always on top of my pain Doctor in the world!!!He seeks solutions as to the nature of the pain and how to reduce the pain long term. Other pain doctors are pill pushers, not my Doctor...I have an astounding amount of respect for Dr. Dave...he is simply the best!!!
