Community Pain Medicine

Located in the heart of Flushing, Community Pain Medicine is a full-service Pain Management Center that offers Interventional Pain Medicine and Physical Therapy. Our goal is to streamline your treatment for pain by offering every level of care under one roof, whether it be conservative treatment in the form of physical therapy or higher-level pain interventions such as epidural steroid injections. We are also very excited to be offering Regenerative Medicine, which is a group of cutting-edge treatments that aim to regenerate damaged tissues in order to decrease pain.

We are proud that our providers are able to provide culturally-sensitive care in English, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, and Spanish. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please give us a call at (718) 224-1600 and speak today to someone on our caring staff. We look forward to serving you.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide evidence-based, precision interventional pain management services as well as physical therapy to target the various causes of acute and chronic pain in our patients.

Our History

Dr. Han S. Lee established Community Pain Medicine in 2004. After many years of treating patients, he realized that the people of Queens were in desperate need of effective, responsible pain management. He saw that many patients had unhealthy posture and lifestyles that contributed to the recurrence of pain and that very few pain centers were set up to offer the highest levels of pain management services.

Originally established in Bayside, Community Pain Medicine eventually moved its offices to Flushing in 2011, where a much larger facility allowed us to further expand services to include physical therapy, occupational therapy, physiatry, and even acupuncture. Over the years, we have streamlined our services to best fit the needs of our community, but we still pride ourselves in providing a comprehensive pain management solution for our patients in our state-of-the-art 7200-square-foot facility.

In order to best serve our community, our providers and staff speak English, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Mandarin.
