Hemlock Pain Center is proud to announce the opening of our newest location in Warner Robins, GA. The Warner Robins office is a satellite of our main location in Macon, and boasts its own top-notch medical staff and physician who can evaluate, diagnose, and treat chronic pain for patients in the Warner Robins area.
The Warner Robins clinic will work closely with the Macon location and have full use of the surgery center and state-of-the-art technology there. We are thrilled to expand our reach and bring our life-changing pain management services to the Warner Robins community.
We are a referral-based facility. If you don’t already have a referral, you will need to obtain one from your Primary Care Provider or Specialist. For more details, refer to our Becoming a Patient section.

We encourage patients to keep daily records of their pain: When it is at its worst? When is it at its most mild? What specific daily tasks do you find difficult or painful, or even impossible?
Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked for some of this information in your New Patient Packet. Keeping diligent records of your pain will make it easier to accurately report to your physician, and thus more helpful in your treatment.
There are many kinds of pain clinics available including both doctor and non-physician treatment strategies. Many physician-run clinics (not pain centers) focus heavily on medications, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone shots and opioids. These types of therapies, while sometimes effective, generally do not offer lasting relief.
The Hemlock Pain Center utilizes cutting-edge technology and chronic pain treatment expertise to create a custom-tailored plan for your individual needs, whatever they may be. We strive to find the source of the pain and treat the problem, rather than just alleviating symptoms.
We also recognize and acknowledge the crucial role of other pain-alleviating modalities from non-physician providers such as psychologists and physical therapists, and other alternative methods including acupuncture and massage therapy. We work in conjunction with these professionals to provide comprehensive pain management.
The degree and type of pain is different for every patient. It can range from mild and occasional to overwhelming and frequent. In terms of clinical classification, pain presents in one of two ways: Acute and chronic.
Acute pain is typically caused a by condition or circumstance. Perhaps you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident or diagnosed with a critical condition, such as cancer. Acute pain comes on suddenly and is typically sharp. It may be your body’s way of warning you or simply recovery from trauma, such as surgery. Acute pain rarely lasts longer than six months. Once the root cause has been treated or healed, acute pain disappears as well.
Chronic pain is more pervasive and more persistent. Untreated or unrelieved acute conditions can lead to chronic pain, which can last anywhere from months to years and lead to limited mobility, general lethargy, anxiety, and clinical depression. Debilitating headaches, lower back pain, hip or joint pain, nerve damage – all are types of chronic pain. It can also present with no visible cause and require more extensive diagnosis from a pain specialist.
The Hemlock Pain Center specializes in the treatment of chronic pain. Our personnel are trained and experienced in advanced medical procedures for chronic pain relief. Our methods are generally more advanced and utilize specialized methodologies that cannot be found in most other physicians’ offices.
It is always our goal to relieve your pain to the extent that you can lead a normal, active life, unhindered by chronic pain. Our physicians will work with you to achieve this goal through a wide array of advanced medical techniques and procedures, depending on your unique needs.
