Exceptional Patient Care For Over 10 years

At Pain and Spine Specialists, Our team of advanced pain specialists and nurse practitioners are committed to giving you the most effective and up-to-date care when treating your pain. 

Our medical director, Dr. Sudhir Rao, has been practicing medicine for over 20 years. He was inspired from an early age to pursue medicine when he watched the innovative and compassionate care that his grandfather provided to patients in India.

As a pain management doctor, Dr. Rao believes that each patient deserves the professional dignity of comprehensive and compassionate medical care. When he started Pain and Spine Specialist in 2012, he made that belief a core part of our culture. As a practice we strive to treat each of our patient as if they were family.

This culture of compassion helps to foster an environment where patients feel safe and their concerns are validated. Our patients are important to us, and our primary goal is to improve their quality of life and over all functionality.

Patient Testimonials

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this office. I was helping my mom find a place for her arthritis pain, and I explained to them how bad it was. They were able to schedule me the same week! That's almost impossible at any doctor's office...and then add COVID..... I was thrilled. I took my mom, and everyone was absolutely so sweet and kind

- Donyasha B.

Dr. Rao. I can't find the words to tell you how much he has meant to me. I followed him from an old practice to his very new high tech office. They offer so many different areas of assistance to those with issues from nutrition to spinal surgery...and much more. His office is professional.

Dr. Roa is such an amazing doctor! During my first visit he never tried to rush through my appt., he genuinely listened to all my concerns and then took his time to explain to me in detail all his recommendations and how they would help me.

- Nikki Walker

In the 3 years as a patient of Dr. Rao, it is my opinion that he is a phenomenal and extraordinary doctor. He keeps up to date with the latest treatment options, will sacrifice time no matter how many are in the waiting room to listen and explain. Dr. Rao has treated multiple patients with rare illnesses, and shows more empathy than any Dr. I’ve met.

I have now been with Dr. Rao for 13 years. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever been to! Dr. Rao makes you feel very comfortable at all times. I would not want to go to any other Doctor... I go to the Hagerstown location, everyone is very nice

The entire staff from the folks at the front desk to the Nurse, to the Physicians Assistant to the scribe that records the visit for the doctor - (great idea so the Doctor can focus on the patient!!!)

Always friendly, courteous, and efficient service. From the ladies, who work the front desk, to the nurses and the doctors. I've always had a good experience with the Harrisonburg office in Virginia.

They scheduled my appointment very quickly so that I can get to help that I needed immediately instead of like most places having to wait two to three weeks to get in I called and was able to be seen the next day

- John H.

After transitioning from a pain and spine doctor in Columbia, MD.. The intake staff member at Pain and Spine Specialist made the scheduling a breeze. They were able to get me in within a week.
