“I have dedicated my practice for over 15 years to the evaluation and management of women with chronic pelvic and vulvar pain. The key to success is listening to the patient tell her story. We do a comprehensive evaluation of the patient using their available old records, imaging reports, and other results, with a comprehensive history and physical exam to determine the nature and components of the pain problem. We outline an interdisciplinary treatment program to allow the patient to improve over time. We treat the entire patient not just a lab or imaging study. With perseverance, more than 90% of our patients can achieve a state where pain is no longer a big factor in their life. We are able to provide minimally invasive treatments in this management. The vast majority of our surgical procedures are done laparoscopically to allow patients to recover more quickly and return to their normal life.”
Dr. Marvel has told me there's actually multiple causes to my pain and has given me a treatment plan that actually gives me hope WITHOUT narcotics. Finally, someone who actually wants to cure me instead of just masking my symptoms.
