Dr. Abbey Ghermay has led Dallas Back Pain Management since its founding in 2005. His experienced leadership has ensured that Dallas Back Pain Management remains at the forefront of pain-relieving procedures and treatments.
Dr. Ghermay understands that pain that goes untreated can affect nearly every aspect of a patient’s daily activities, keeping them from the things they enjoy most. Pain can also be a source of stress and affect how people interact with their family and friends. While pain is one of the most common reasons people consult a physician, yet it is often inadequately treated. Chronic or long-term pain can change a life in ways that few understand.
Dr. Ghermay does.
First and foremost, he specializes in being a good listener, and takes pride in establishing a one-on-one relationship with each of his patients. He and his team perform a comprehensive evaluation and put together a detailed plan to optimize pain control, enhance physical and psychological well-being, and restore quality of life.
Beyond his main office in Plano, Dr. Ghermay practices out of our Dallas office.

Without reservation, I have recommended this practice to a number of friends! Professional, kind, and caring are the terms I would use for this practice as a whole. They will know you, they will empathize with you. They understand pain-associated neurological pain and offer a great number of current technologies to help you with it.
I would like to thank Kay Anderson for always being a bright spot in the day when I call. She is always kind to me. She knows my voice and, whether she is happy to hear from me or not, she makes me feel as though she is happy to hear from me! This is rare and it's "gold" for a patient struggling with back pain.
Jose Garcia is another I'd like to thank. Jose is a talented technical expert who has to juggle names and numbers and patients each day and never make a mistake! Everyone makes mistakes but it seems Jose never does, which is a great deal of pressure considering he still finds a way to remember you and ask after your family or how you are doing.
Finally Dr. Ghermay. I'm not sure how doctor's offices are structured these days with so many changing management structures but it seems that Dr. Ghermay leads by example. I feel very strongly that he cares for his patients and considers how they feel which is a comforting feeling when you are dealing with pain.
These 3 people are very important to me and I would recommend them over any I have met in the medical field in the care and treatment of back pain.
I live in Dallas and am 57 years old. Dr. Ghermay has been treating me since May of this year 2019 and he is the best doctor I’ve I’ve dealt with so far along the way. I have chronic nerve pain in the back of my neck and lower lumbar sciatica and with many nerve issues running down my legs to my feet. I’ve had upper and lower MRIs and upper and lower x rays. My discs and vertebrates aren’t in very good shape however it is clear none are compressing on my spinal cord. I also made sure to get a 2nd opinion on my images but was confirmed none were compressing on my spinal cord. I’ve had every blood test you could ever think of and everything was good. Thank god for no diseases. I also believe I have possibly developed Neuropathy nerve issues which may be what’s causing the burning down my legs to my feet. I am scheduled for nerve conduction tests soon. Never in my younger days did I ever think I would be in this kind of pain when getting older. Dr. Ghermay is so very nice and patient and takes the time to listen to my symptoms. He is very kind and compassionate. He is treating me with lower lumbar back and neck injections and it is relieving my pains. Dr. Ghermay is the best!! He sure knows how to get you out of pain and feeling better that’s for sure. His entire staff from his preparing assistant, injections team and administrative team are awesome. Kay in scheduling is one of the nicest ladies I’ve ever met. Karen with the injections team is very sweet and a caring person. After all the other specialists I’ve been to along this road and with the negative experiences I’ve had with them, I just feel compelled to take the time to compliment Dr. Ghermay and his team. It is such a relief to finally have someone that helps you and cares and not just trying to hurry the visit to see another patient. I am so thankful!!
I would like to give special thanks to Kay in scheduling. Kay is so sweet!!! She is very detailed and makes everything so easy to understand. Karen is very sweet and a truly caring person. She is just like family. Linda in paramedics team is awesome!!! Always cheerful!!! Jose is very nice and humble. You can ask him anything and he will help you to understand. And Dr. Ghermay is extremely caring!!! He pinpoints the problems and does whatever it takes to get it resolved. I wished he was my doctor for all medical group practices. I am lucky to have Dr. Ghermay as my pain management doctor!
What a great team!
I would like to say thank you for someone as caring as Kay Adams. She not only makes me feel like she cares, but she also demonstrates that in all she does for me. She wrote me letters I needed for insurance and called to check on me. She remembers my mom passed away recently and always asks me how I’m doing with my loss. This is an employee you just treasure because they don’t make them like her anymore!
Also, Dr. Ghermay and Nurse Jose are always right there when I need them. Always carefully listening to what my needs are and sometimes just being heard is what someone in chronic pain needs. Thank you for such an amazing staff.
Dr. Ghermay and Jose are AMAZING. I can't even begin to thank them for everything they have done for me.
Kay Adams is INCREDIBLE. She is extremely knowledgeable and very professional. She is friendly and efficient. The office runs smoothly and on time. The friendless and professionalism of the office staff is excellent. I have been to several other doctors offices in the past and this office and staff are far above average. I can't think of any way to improve the practice. It's perfect the way it is right now.
I have recommended many friends to this practice. I am very impressed with the professionalism and concern showed during spots and procedures.
The friendliness and professionalism of the staff were excellent. Kay Adams was great at scheduling appointments. She is always very helpful and has a great voice. Karen Tyler excelled at getting my insurance approved and assisting on surgery days. And Hosea, the male nurse, was always efficient and detailed and helpful.
Dr. Ghermay is excellent, dedicated, responsible, and has helped me greatly. He is very detailed and on time for appointments and procedures. I am very impressed with this staff and will gladly recommend them to others.
