Dr. Mel Pohl, Medical Director of Las Vegas Recovery Center, was recently included in the Best Doctors in America® list for 2013 making it his 4th year in a row. This widely respected list, created by Best Doctors, Inc., results from exhaustive polling of over 45,000 physicians in the United States. In a confidential review, current listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies additional information to meet inclusion criteria. Only 5% of the doctors in America earn a spot on the list. Dr. Pohl is a Board Certified Family Practitioner, certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine, and a Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). He was a major force in developing Las Vegas Recovery Center’s Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program, a program for individuals who have chronic pain and co-occurring drug dependence. He is the author of A Day Without Pain (Central Recovery Press, 2008) and co-author of Pain Recovery: How to Find Balance and Reduce Suffering from Chronic Pain (Central Recovery Press, 2009), and Pain Recovery for Families: How to Find Balance When Someone Else’s Chronic Pain Becomes Your Problem Too (Central Recovery Press, 2010).
