TCAPP does not endorse these doctors, their names are provided by at least one client suffering from a pediatric pain condition that has had a positive experience; this does not mean that eveyone’s experience with that particular doctor has been positive. Keep in mind, choosing doctors is much like trying on shoes… each perfect fit may be different for each individual.

We rely on recommendations from patients, if you have had a positive experience with a physician and feel like they should be on this list, please submit the doctor’s name, specialty, internet link or office telephone number and what they have helped you with.
