Welcome To Stages of Life

Founded by David S. Klein, MD, Stages of Life Medical Institute focuses on diagnosis first and foremost. Without an accurate diagnosis, therapeutic intervention is destined to be inadequate.

Our purpose and mission is to deliver quality office-based medical services in an unthreatening, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We focus our attention on the diagnosis and treatment of pain, pain-related problems, hormonal dysfunction, and provide other diagnostic services.

Employing a comprehensive or holistic approach, we treat a variety of pain problems, from headache to foot pain, neuritis to colitis, the approach to medical treatment uses a variety of techniques that cross many sub-specialties of medicine.

We draw patients from all over the United States, and we frequently receive patients from overseas.

We currently provide comprehensive medical care in the office setting. As an important part of our practice, we perform related diagnostic and therapeutic services. In addition to treating headaches, facial pain, abdominal and back pain; pain due to cancer, degenerative diseases and trauma, we perform many of our own diagnostic modalities. This expedites treatment, and the result is a much higher quality of care than might otherwise be obtained.

Our Ancillary Diagnostic Modalities

  • EKG (electrocardiogram)

  • PFT (pulmonary function testing)

  • ICG (impedance cardiogram)

  • NCV (nerve conduction velocity testing)

  • Spirometry

  • Bioelectrical Impedance Plesmythmography

  • Physical Medicine

  • Nutraceutical sales.

  • Ethical prescription fulfillment.

We are proud to provide this wide spectrum of services to our patients, and we plan to expand our line of services in future years. We aim to provide quality medical services to patients suffering from pain as well as to patients suffering from the sequelae of degenerative processes and those disorders that result from life.

We are here to provide service to the patient. We are here for them; they are not here to serve us.

Patient satisfaction is the ultimate measure of our successes and failures.
