A 25-year-old female asked:

2 doctor answers
Dr. Andrew Germanovich answered
12 years experience Pain Management
A good amount: To go into pain medicine your doctor went through one of four specialties. Neurology, physiatry, anesthesiology or psychiatry. All specialties have done about a year of internal medicine during an internship and have a decent grasp of internal medicine which is a foundation for all non-surgical specialties.
