Greene County Medical Center will be offering a pain clinic beginning January 5, 2022. Dr. Keith Barnhill, CRNA, ARNP, PhD, and Dr. Rich Jacobson, DNP, CRNA with Heartland Anesthesia will be on site the first and third Wednesdays of each month to perform an array of pain services.
“Bringing a pain clinic to Greene County Medical Center is just another way we are investing in Jefferson and surrounding communities. By providing this new service locally, our patients won’t have to drive to the city for these treatment options. Offering a pain clinic here ensures the community is getting the highest quality care we can offer,” stated Dr. Laurie Connolly, Chief Medical Officer at Greene County Medical Center. “Both Dr. Barnhill and Dr. Jacobson, will be a great addition to our current list of services at the Medical Center. We are very excited for them to start providing pain management services to our patients.”
The Greene County Medical Center pain clinic will be providing a variety of pain management services to help with the following conditions: arthritis, pinched nerves, arm and shoulder pain, back and neck pain, pain after surgery, cancer pain, muscle pain, pain associated with osteoporosis and much more.
