A message from Dr. Le-Short:

"I believe what is missing from the practice of pain medicine is the focus on the patient and not the pill or procedure. I take a whole-person approach to patient care, taking into account the person's psychological and social determinants of health to help them overcome their pain."Please see for more information on her practice and other available services.OverrideVirtual teams of specialists delivering evidence-based chronic pain careOverride offers One collaborative virtual care team for all your chronic pain needs. Research shows that when providers work as a team, patients do better. Virtual Comprehensive careTeam-based approachResults-drivenOverride offers the same core components at a better value, on your schedule, and from the comfort of home.

Override - Comprehensive Virtual Pain Care

Override provides virtual teams of chronic pain specialists (pain physicians, physical therapists, psychologists, and coaches) delivering evidence-based chronic pain care.

Each member of the care team works individually with each patient and together as a team. When providers work as a team, patients do better.

Chronic pain specialists are difficult to find, expensive, and often have long wait lists. Override offers patients immediate access to chronic pain specialists at affordable rates.

How it works:

Step 1: Assessment and Personalized Care Plan

You will have a 1:1 consultation with an Override board-certified pain physician who will assess your needs and handpick which other Override specialists will compose your care team. Your care team then collaborates live to create a an individualized care plan and goals specific to you.

Step 2: Specialist Care & Ongoing Coaching

Begin ongoing treatment with your Override physician and other specialists on your care team. Learn about pain science, how to use neuroplasticity to calm pain signals, and work towards your goals in 1:1 sessions with your Override coach and group coaching sessions with others with chronic pain.

Step 3:  Using Our Platform to Complement Your Care

Your Override care team continues to work individually with you and collaboratively with each other to better inform your care. Override monitors your progress and adjusts your care plan accordingly to best meet your needs and goals.
