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 had a bit of a meltdown ~ scared of what I thought might happen to me down the road. Dr.Mills was extremely reassuring and thoroughly explained treatment plans. He answered all my questions.

    Dr. Mills and all the staff at the practice have always treated me with kindness and professionalism. This is the best medical practice I've ever gone to (and I have been to many of them these past 5 years). They treat me like a PERSON and not an inconvenience (which unfortunately happens with many doctors' offices today)

    Dr. Mills and staff were all wonderful. I have heard good things about Dr. Mills & was not disappointed when I met him. He is professional, knowledgable, friendly, has an amazing disposition. I love that he does not suggest narcotics or anything of the sort.
