Good things underway at Tri-State Pain Institute

- April 1, 2021

We move to new offices in April.

I am pleased to announce that we will be in our new offices at 5442 Peach Street in Erie by mid-April. Located just north of the Millcreek Mall, this facility is an ideal spot for us to continue serving you as the region’s leading pain management center. Please note that our phone numbers and email will remain the same.

We have two new physician assistants.

Some of you may already have met our two new physician assistants, Liam Cunningham and Eldena Selimovic. Dr. Diefenbach and I are delighted to officially welcome them to our clinical team. Liam and Eldena both completed their graduate and undergraduate degrees at Gannon University. Their medical training includes rotations at UPMC Hamot and other health care facilities in the region.

Our commitment to you remains the same.

Today’s health care environment can be challenging for independent practices like ours. However, with strong partnerships, thoughtful planning and ongoing investments in staff and facilities, Tri-State Pain Institute is committed to providing you with high quality, effective pain treatment.

My pledge remains the same – to simply do what’s best for you, our patients. Thank you for the trust and confidence you have placed in me and our entire staff.
