Dr. Rebecca Aronson views the treatment of pelvic pain as addressing the source of the pain and helping to alleviate it, not only resolving the symptoms.  Pelvic health and addressing associated pain is important to her because it’s an underserved area of medicine that affects millions of people whose symptoms have not been addressed.  Dr. Aronson sees helping these patients as a great way to increase their quality of life.  Dr. Aronson received her medical degree from Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine.  She is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
