I have been a patient of Dr. Salman Mian with Innova Pain Center for a little over a year. When I moved to Houston around that time, I needed to replace my previous pain consultant with someone local. I had been on opioids for several years through multiple surgeries and was having 3 more after arriving here. The use of these drugs was very helpful, but worrisome at the same time. He never berated me, always encouraged and applauded my small steps when they occurred. Even when I hit plateaus, he just encouraged my efforts. I am free of opioids now and he told me how proud he was of me on my most recent visit. There will be times when surgeries will occur again. I hate the thought, but I know I have someone in my court to support the transition back! Thank you, Dr. Mian!
