Who We Are

bmc team

BMC's nationally recognized treatment programs are run by a skilled team of caring, knowledgeable, experienced specialists who receive input from physicians, nurses, behavioral psychologists, and other health care professionals to meet the unique clinical needs of each patient. We understand that a painful medical problem can “ripple” into nearly every aspect of your life, from your ability to carry out daily activities to how you think, behave, and feel.

Fortunately, there is hope even for patients with conditions where no simple “cure” or “fix” exists. For some patients, success is measured by relief of physical symptoms. For others, success involves learning new ways to minimize the effects of pain and maximize comfort and quality of life. These goals are achieved through the use of individually tailored behavioral self management programs that empower patients to gain control of symptoms resistant to medical treatments. For these treatments to work, BMC staff understands that chronic pain is not a weakness, a mental disorder, or a character flaw. It is a real medical problem that is treatable. The BMC believes that no one should have to live with excessive pain.

If you or someone you know is suffering from pain that medications or other therapies are not effectively controlling, the Behavioral Medicine Clinic may be able to help. Contact us online or call us at 716-898-5671 to get the help you need.
