Elbow Pain

Elbow pain can be a very frustrating and chronic condition, especially when improperly managed. Many of our patients receive inaccurate diagnoses and ineffective treatments from other health professionals prior to visiting our office. They even sometimes seek help from internet guided self treatments which has often resulted in elbow pain lasting for months or even years. Dr. Phipps is a soft tissue specialist and has specialized training in the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of elbow pain. When you have pain it can be difficult to determine which specialist to see first. We eliminate your uncertainty by requiring all potential patients to start with a consultation. This consultation is a brief visit with the doctor to determine if you are in the right place and would benefit from his care. Dr. Phipps always keeps consultation times available for new patients, so you won’t have to delay the proper treatment any further.
