“As a pain management physician, it is important to be aware and understand that each person experiences pain differently. At times, the cause of the pain is easily identifiable, such as a broken bone. Other times, it is more difficult and many times is multifactorial in nature. As an osteopathic physician, I believe in treating the whole person using a multidisciplinary approach. I do my best to respect and listen to each person’s perception of their pain, as well as take into account their health, work, and social lifestyle in order to formulate a plan of care which addresses their individual needs. I will work in partnership with the patient to improve their chronic pain by utilizing interventional techniques, promoting wellness, injury prevention, and healing.”
Carrie Steichen, DO, has been treating patients at Pain Consultants of West Florida since July 2014, and has been practicing osteopathic medicine for nearly 11 years. She is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Anesthesiology and the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, and is affiliated with several national and local professional societies, including The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the Escambia County Medical Society, the American Osteopathic Association, the International Spine Intervention Society, the American Osteopathic College of Anesthesiologists, and the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.
Dr. Steichen believes in treating her patients with the utmost respect and honesty to create an individualized treatment plan. Since placing roots in Pensacola last year, Dr. Steichen has immensely enjoyed the kindness of the community. When she’s not caring for her patients, she relaxes by brushing up on her golf skills and spending time at the beach with her son. To keep her mind and body sound, she keeps a regular exercise routine and listens to her favorite music.
Dr. Steichen approaches her practice with a personal philosophy of combining her abilities and strong moral core with sound medical knowledge and honesty to get the best possible outcome for every single patient. One of Dr. Steichen’s greatest hopes for the future is that she can continue to uphold the doctor-patient relationship. She aims to work collaboratively with her patients to make well-informed and effective treatment decisions. Dr. Steichen has hospital privileges at Sacred Heart Hospital.
