About Carl Balog
Dr. Carl Balog is an anesthesiologist and pain management specialist. With 23 years of experience and a double-board certification, he has faithfully served patients in the Portland, Oregon area.
Recognizing his authority and dedication to their care, patients have flocked to him for their pain management needs.
At the center of his philosophy of care is the focus on convenience. The Oregon Pain Associates - his practice, which he founded - maintains multiple locations, to shorten the drive out. Administrative tasks such as paperwork are also made easier with the help of the staff. Dr. Balog has made a point of accepting most kinds of insurance, as well as taking cases of worker’s compensation. Above all, Dr. Balog is dedicated to preserving the peace of mind of his patients, making them feel welcome and at home. All the procedures are performed in the office, and he is personally responsible for all anesthetic work done at the clinic. This saves the patient money from the insurance, by eliminating the cost of a second doctor.
Dr. Balog, above all else, believes in the nonsurgical options. He wants his patients to be back to their lives faster and better than they were before. He is able to treat conditions like pain in the shoulder and the arm, the back and neck, the spinal area, as well as muscle and joint areas. He also helps with pain associated with back surgery and cancer. He helps with pain associated with vertebral compression fractures, neuropathic pain, and reflex sympathetic disorder.
