Six physicians from Alliance Spine and Pain Centers —the largest interventional pain management company in the Southeast— rank among metro Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta magazine’s July issue. Alliance Spine and Pain Centers physicians consistently appear on the list, which annually honors the best physicians Atlanta has to offer as voted on by their peers.
This year’s list includes Alliance Spine and Pain Centers physicians Drs. Will Epps, David Gale, Allen Hord, Rhee Miller, David Neckman, and David Rosenfeld, all in the interventional pain management category.
Atlanta magazine draws from a roster of doctors selected by Professional Research Service (PRS) with more than 1,000 physicians appearing on the publication’s 2023 list representing Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. PRS then conducts an online peer-review survey of physicians in the metro Atlanta area asking them to nominate fellow physicians they deem to be the best in their field of practice. Physicians nominated are then thoroughly vetted prior to being officially selected.
Stephen Rosenbaum, CEO of Alliance Spine and Pain Centers, applauds the distinguished physicians and the practice as a whole for their commitment to excellence.
“This recognition serves as a well-deserved honor of our physicians’ commitment, compassion, and drive to offer innovative pain management solutions,” says Rosenbaum. “It’s also a testament to our unwavering commitment to the well-being of our patients and our pursuit of comprehensive care.”
