RAEFORD – Hoke County residents will have local access to the specialty pain management services of the FirstHealth Back & Neck Pain Center with the Oct. 11 opening of a satellite clinic in Raeford.
Located in the FirstCare Specialty Centers building at 4565 Fayetteville Road, Raeford, the clinic will be staffed by two board certified pain specialists and will be open for appointments every Thursday with the potential for additional days as necessary.
According to Robert Oldroyd, M.D., the Hoke County office is being opened to give the providers and residents of Hoke County local access to the pain management services of the FirstHealth Back & Neck Pain program.
“The ability to quickly evaluate patients with pain allows for improved efficiencies in intervention and management,” Dr. Oldroyd says. “Although the satellite clinic in Raeford is not full-service, it will be the first access point to quality pain management.”
The second pain specialist at the Raeford clinic will be David L. Chandler, D.O.
Dr. Oldroyd earned his medical degree from Finch University of Health Sciences/The Chicago Medical School and completed his transitional internship and residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
