OVERVIEW

TeleMedicine | Open NowDr. Ombao specializes in interventional pain medicine and uses a comprehensive approach to pain management. He became interested in the field of interventional pain management because he values developing long term patient relationships and seeing progress in his patients. “I take great pride in helping patients resume their hobbies, enjoy family time, work and their retirement,” he said.Prior to joining National Spine & Pain Centers, Dr. Ombao spent more than nine years working at Geisinger Health Systems both in Danville and Wilkes-Barre, PA.

He then completed a residency in anesthesiology at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY before finishing a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, IA.“I’m excited with new applications for spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation and dorsal root ganglion stimulation for treatment of chronic pain, ” said Dr. Ombao. “I try to create an individualized treatment for each patient and recognize that interventional pain medicine is both a science and an art.”Dr. Ombao is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and the North American Neuromodulation Society. He is fluent in English, Spanish and Tagalog.He believes the key to a successful therapeutic relationship is open communication and setting appropriate expectations. “Healing and recovery take time.

"Dr Ombao has been excellent in helping me to manage my pain. He listens to what I say and answers all questions thoroughly. It is obvious that relieving my pain is his primary concern. I am sorry to see that he will be leaving NJ in order to care for his family. I recommend him highly."

"The above rating is for Dr. Ombao, not Premier Pain Center. Dr. Ombao is the greatest. Took time to listen and helped resolve my problem. Sadly he is relocating to another state. I was not impressed with the office location or the staff (other than Dr. Ombao) at Premier Pain Center, so I will have to look for another pain management Dr. Good luck Dr. Ombao! "

"Having been a patient of Dr. Ombao's for over three years, he was always attentive to my concerns. Dr. Ombao has alleviated most of my pain, and was always very thorough in explaining my condition and course of treatment."
  • June 8, 2022
"Over the past several years, I have had a positive patient experience with Dr. Ombao. He is a skilled and knowledgeable physician and helped me with my pain. I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Ombao and would highly recommended him for pain management."

"Dr. Ombao is the only doctor who found the right spot for an injection. I suffer with chronic pain due to nerve damage from an inguinal hernia surgery. My experience with four different pain management doctors could not find the correct injection spot, and all of these doctors had over 20 years experience. Dr. Omabo found the correct injection area on his first try. My pain relief and activities improved by 50%. I do tell everyone about the new star doctor in Toms River N.J. , Dr. Jolly Omabo. "
  • June 7, 2022
"Dr. Ombao is one of the most thorough and knowledgeable professionals I've ever met. Seeing him about a new back/spine issue, he listened to all my questions and concerns, then proceeded to outline a proactive plan to remedy my issue. His answers were explained in a manner that I could understand, which is greatly appreciated. I felt that he cared about my progress and the success of his treatment."

"Dr Ombao is very professional and very personable. He really takes the time to explain the treatments and makes sure your questions are answered. He has helped me so much throughout my pain journey. "

"When I was experiencing severe, excruciating pain in my left shoulder my orthopedic doctor sent me to a facility for pain management that I went to previously for my right shoulder. The doctor I had before was no longer at that facility, but Dr. Jolly Ombao was, and I am extremely happy that he was. Dr. Jolly Ombao is one of the most knowledgeable, compassionate, caring, enthusiastic doctors I have ever met. He actually listens to you. I know that sounds amazing, but he actually does listen, and he talks to you in a way that makes you comfortable in the belief that he knows exactly what your issue is and how to treat it. Since being treated by Dr. Jolly Ombao my level of pain went from a 10 at times, to 0. I went from excruciating pain to no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Jolly Ombao to anyone experiencing shoulder pain, knee pain, back pain…etc etc etc.. In fact, anyone dealing with any pain that can be addressed by pain management, should make your next appointment with Dr. Jolly ...
Ombao. Oh, by the way, I don’t usually write reviews for anything, but felt compelled to write this one because of my strong belief in Dr. Jolly Ombao. "

"After searching for a doctor who could help me I am blessed that I have found Dr .Ombao.. He took my condition and my pain seriously he took time to explain to me that I had options and it wasn't just surgery. I have had several visits as well as several procedures done with Dr. Ombao and I am very satisfied with the results. I no longer walk with a cane my pain levels have gone down significantly there is no promise with any procedure , but I can't say enough about how much better I feel with the course of treatment that I have been prescribed. I take less medication, I have more range of motion I can actually function much easier in daily tasks then I could before. I am not the only one that is happy I can walk my dogs again which I missed being able to do! I am now looking forward to the warmer weather to see if I am actually able to ride my bike again my fingers are crossed because so far everything else is working great. I have a positive outlook on going forward and I can't say ...
thank you enough . I would recommend Dr Ombao 100% to anyone who has spine or hip discomfort or pain my pain levels were very high and although it's not completely gone pain level that I have now is much much lower and totally manageable where I am able do things I gave up on. Thank you again for everything you have done for me I truly appreciate it "

"Dr Ombao is professional.. He is a Doctor that takes the time to listen to his patients and finds the best way to treat them. I saw other doctors to get relief from pain. And nothing worked . Dr Ombao found the way. I am pain free and back to feeling like myself again. Excellent Doctor. "

"I overheard a woman telling someone about the relief she received after being treated at Premeir Pain in Brick. I did not recognize the name but I was familiar with the address 1430 Hooper Ave. I made an appointment with the first available doctor, I struck gold with Dr. Ombao, he is an excellent doctor. I received a PDF intake questioner that was the most thorough I have seen, they asked about everything. After reviewing the PDF answers and I relayed my symptoms to him, Dr. Ombao used an iPad showing me the nervous system, started from the area of pain and worked back to show where the pain actually originated, and suggested a procedure. A week after the procedure I experienced great relief from the pain I was having, I was surprised at the length of time I was pain free, in fact I rescheduled my follow up appointment for a couple of weeks later because I had no pain. I have experienced chronic pain for over two decades, surgery’s, epidurals, pills and therapy. It was only after Dr. Ombao’s ...
treatments (with his great staff) that I received true relief from the pain. "

"Dr Jolly Ombao helped me tremendously. I had an issue with my neck and it took at least 4 weeks for me to figure out the best course of action. It ended up I needed surgery. Dr Jolly Ombao is now helping me through recovery. I highly recommend him."

"Phenomenal he has helped me immensely to finally provide pain relief I suffered for so long seeing Doctor to Doctor and no one ever sat down and listened the way Doctor Ombao did. He was so thorough and took the time to explain everything to me so I understood and felt comfortable. I finally have relief , I finally can do my activities without bringing a walker or chair to sit every five minutes."

"Dr. Ombao has been one of the most thorough, sincere and trustworthy medical professionals that I’ve been a patient of in quite a while. His knowledge and professionalism were evident from the start, and the quality of care I’ve received has been quite refreshing. When I explain what I’ve been experiencing, I feel like I’m being listened to. I see the wheels spinning in his head and I feel a genuine sense of thought and persistence being applied to properly diagnose my case. It is all too often that patients find themselves jumping through hoops concerning their health care, and dealing with insurance companies, which all becomes extremely stressful and draining. Dr. Ombao has made such a grueling process as easy and comprehensive as possible. I did not come on here and write this review to recommend Dr. Ombao. I’m writing this urge anyone (like me) experiencing chronic pain and seeking relief, to see Dr. Ombao. I am sure glad that I did. "

"Dr. Ombao is a great physician. He takes the time to listen and is very thoughtful in discussing next steps for care."

" First visit to premier Pain Center was a mistake. Dr. Ombao seemed confused and left office several times to confer with others. Tried to call several times the next day about sample medicine He gave me and left messages but no response. Communication is difficult with this healthcare provider and they did not bill my insurance correctly so they sent me a bill for $625 for the one 15 min. office visit! You wonder why Health Insurance is so expensive it's because there are some greedy unprofessional Healthcare workers that are in it for the money not health. I received no healthcare only a Bill."
