“Dr. Hochkeppel is one of the best pain management specialists I've had the pleasure of attending over the last 4-5 years. I wish I could continue with him but have moved too far away. I wholeheartedly recommend him. He knows his stuff. He listens well and as a bonus is a very nice person.”  Read more...

He completed his fellowship training at Stanford University, where he specialized in multidisciplinary management of a wide variety of acute and chronic painful conditions. He holds board certifications from the American Board of Anesthesiology in both Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology.
