Healthcare Provider Directory

FPA posts these links as a convenient way for visitors to access third party information concerning health institutions, physicians, and others who offer services and products to those with facial pain conditions. FPA has made no independent examination of the professional qualifications, education, experience or other credentials of those with whom we have linked, the validity or suitability of the services or products which they offer, or of the accuracy of the content of the linked sites.

All healthcare professionals and institutions posted on the healthcare provider site pay FPA a professional membership fee.

The treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and related facial pain is not always successful and, sometimes, produces complications or side effects which are similarly difficult to treat. It is the individual responsibility of each visitor to verify the qualifications, education and experience of any healthcare professional, hospital or other provider of services and products and to assess the suitability of any service or product for any particular purpose. In the case of doctors, information is generally available from state medical boards concerning a doctor’s number of years in practice, where the doctor went to medical school, if there are any open complaints against the doctor or whether the board took disciplinary action against the doctor’s license. Similar information may be available from state licensing authorities concerning other healthcare professionals.

Visitors are also advised that all health institutions, physicians and others who appear on this medical resource site pay a fee to FPA.
