LIVE OAK — Pain Doctor San Antonio has more than doubled the size of its facility at 12602 Toepperwein Road, Suite 218.

March 9 marked an open house allowing community members to tour the renovated clinic, which originally debuted in 2008. It is located in the Toepperwein Business Center just off Interstate 35.

The expansion, which started last October and finished in mid-December, increased the facility from 3,700 square feet to more than 8,000 square feet.

Additions include six more procedure rooms and a larger nurses’ station.

Pain Doctor offers medication management and comprehensive care for full-body discomfort and work-related injuries, according to a spokeswoman.

The clinic’s goal is to “alleviate or eliminate pain,” said marketing liaison Terry Hefner.

Staffers at the clinic said they are guided by five values: leadership, integrity, kindness, excellence and services.

“We treat each patient like they’re our mom or dad, sister, aunt or children,” said Meagan Macaluso, regional operations manager.

The staff includes Dr. Narciso Gonzalez, a pain-management specialist who earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (now UT Health San Antonio).

In addition, a certified registered nurse anesthetist also is on duty.

The clinic works with Shavano Oaks Pharmacy in Shavano Park, which offers a courier service for patients.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
