Bradley D Fanestil, MD

About

Dr. Fanestil is board certified in Internal Medicine and has practiced as both a primary care internist and as a hospitalist for most of his career. In 2017, he began researching and learning about new theories in neuroscience - largely supported by functional MRI (fMRI) data - that are beginning to explain the emotional connections between mind and body.

After watching many patients improve or resolve their chronic pain problem, he works now at The Center for Mind Body Medicine, which draws upon these new theories to treat chronic pain and other hard-to-treat medical symptoms - without the use of medications. It is important to note that he does not manage or prescribe pain medications. Instead, he uses new concepts in neuropsychology to reduce or eliminate pain circuits in the brain. Please check out the Mind Body webpage for more information.

    Gave me handouts - went over handouts w/me before I left. Handouts covered some of the things we covered plus additional resources. VERY helpful.

    Overall I was really disappointed with my visit to Dr. Fanestil. He basically just went through the lecture he presented March 10, which I watched. He did not ask to see any test results or talk much about prior history. He asked me a couple high level questions about what I was experiencing and then talked at me (re-presenting the content from the lecture) for nearly an hour. At the end of the visit he gave me a laundry list of exercises and things to try and encouraged me to sign up for one of his group classes at an additional cost.
