Dr. Ross always knew he wanted to become a physician as he had a passion for science and a desire to help people. He pursued Pain Medicine because of his interest in the science of pain and the growing advancements in its treatment. What he loves most about being a physician is empowering patients to take control of their own well-being, resulting in improvement of their health and happiness.

Dr. Ross understands that chronic pain is very complex and he recognizes that each individual has specific factors which affect their pain experience. He feels that effective diagnosis and treatment involve thoroughness in addressing the different contributors to pain. Using a Biopsychosocial approac­h, he offers evidence-based, multimodal treatment plans with an emphasis on patient safety and active involvement in one’s own care. He values that Community Care Physicians offers multiple integrated service lines which provides the unique opportunity to introduce an Interdisciplinary Pain Management program to the Capital Region.

Dr. Ross is originally from Long Island, NY, and fell in love with the Adirondacks, which drew him to the Capital Region. Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time with his wife and dog, boating, fishing, skiing, and pickleball.
