Dr. Kartik Ananth Honored As One Of Castle Connolly's Top Doctors Of 2015
“I am greatly humbled and honored to be receiving this award, especially knowing there are other physicians who are equally deserving,” said Dr. Ananth when he was informed he was chosen out of the hundreds of thousands of doctors who were vetted for the honor.
Dr. Ananth is one of an elite group of physicians within the United States that is double board certified in both Psychiatry and Pain Management. When asked about his shift towards practicing pain management, Dr. Ananth said, “Practicing in the field of psychiatry made me realize how pain and psychiatry can directly coincide and affect patients’ lives, which inspired me to become board certified in both psychiatry and pain. At the end of the day, knowing I’ve helped my patients is what propels me to continue this work.”
Dr. Ananth’s dedication to both his practice and patients is highlighted by his prestigious and successful educational training. He achieved his residency training in Psychiatry from Westchester Medical Center at New York Medical College, and completed his Pain Management fellowship at the USC Keck School of Medicine in the Department of Anesthesia. He continues to improve the field and stay abreast of the latest research with his memberships to numerous professional organizations, like the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the International Association for the Study of Pain, and the American Psychiatric Association.
Dr. Ananth founded the Pacific Pain & Wellness Group to provide patients with a team of qualified physicians who work as a whole to relieve chronic pain and treat the often comorbid psychiatric disorders that are associated with such conditions.
