Jody has been helping patients with medications, injections and pain pumps for 16 years at Lakewalk Surgery Center. She loves her co-workers and knows she is best able to serve patients because of her own needs at the pain clinic. When she isn’t working, Jody keeps busy with three boys, lots of hockey and camping.
For Jody, an ideal experience is one where she is able to partner with patients to identify and achieve a successful outcome. She says, “At the Pain Clinic of Lake Superior, you're not just a number. If we aren’t able to answer the phone when you call, we will call you back directly. There isn’t anyone screening our calls and we don’t have a two-month waiting list.”
When you’re in pain, every moment can feel like forever. Thanks to Jody and the team at the Pain Clinic, they personalize every visit to address the issues you face every day.
With over 13 years of clinical pain experience, Tiauni assists Dr. Davies and the team at the Pain Clinic of Lake Superior as a Certified Health Unit Coordinator. She enjoys working with patients to schedule their visits and appreciates the excitement her co-workers add to her days. When she isn’t working, Tiauni spends time with family, enjoys movies and games and shopping for great deals.
For Tiauni, her work can be difficult because she doesn’t like seeing patients in pain. She strives to provide laughter to her patients and says, “Since we are more familiar with you at the Pain Clinic, we are able to personalize each experience. I like that I can joke and laugh around to put a smile on someone’s face. It seems like our patients appreciate the work and extra time we put into their care.”
As a private facility, the Pain Clinic of Lake Superior provides individualized pain management treatment you can’t get at larger facilities. This allows the team to maintain a continuum of care for you that doesn’t end with just one visit.
