Paolo Mimbella, MD

Dr. Mimbella is a double board-certified physiatrist. He is an expert in interventional spine, musculoskeletal, and sports medicine.

Physiatry is a branch of medicine geared towards improving a patient’s quality of life and function. It takes a truly multidisciplinary approach to tackling difficult medical problems. Working hand-in-hand with other physicians, surgeons, chiropractors, OTs, PTs, SLPs, massage therapists, acupuncturists, mental health specialists, case managers, and most importantly the patient themselves, Dr. Mimbella enjoys helping patients who have been injured achieve their highest potential of improvement. Dr. Mimbella believes that everyone can improve.
