Dr. Nwokeabia completed his pain medicine fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, California, June 2020. He completed his residency at Washington University St Louis/Barnes Jewish Hospital in 2019. Prior to starting his medical career Dr. Nwokeabia was a knowledge engineer for Pfizer Inc.
Dr. Nwokeabia’s decision to pursue a career in pain management with a focus on interventional treatments supports his desire to bring a holistic approach to patients suffering from chronic pain. He is concerned with the opioid addiction that permeates our country and he believes there is a better approach to manage chronic pain and help patients live a quality life.
Dr. Nwokeabia, who prefers to be called Dr. David chose to pursue his pain management career in Alamogordo versus a large academic medical center because he saw the healthcare needs of rural communities. He looks forward to working with Dr. Underwood to bring the same standards of care seen in large pain management centers to Alamogordo.
In his spare time, Dr. David enjoys outdoor activities, he has completed three marathons, loves to travel and read. Dr. David likes the opportunity to live and contribute to a small community and living in Alamogordo allows him to visit with his family in El Paso.
Dr. David will be accepting new patients at 1212 9th St., Suite A, Alamogordo, NM 88310. Call (575) 439-9997 to schedule an appointment.
