About Jason G. Attaman, D.O.

Dr. Attaman was elected by other physicians as a Seattle Met "Top Doc" in Pain Medicine for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Dr. Attaman was elected as a Seattle Magazine "Top Doc" in Pain Medicine for 2019. He is the only Pain Medicine doctor to receive the Top Doc award from both magazines in 2019. He is a medical school Clinical Assistant Professor. If you are reading this, chances are you are trying to find relief for your pain issues. It is very difficult choosing which physician to see when you are suffering from chronic pain. Should you see a pain doctor, a surgeon, a neurologist, a chiropractor, a naturopath, an acupuncturist? The choices and options are bewildering! If you choose to see Dr. Attaman, you will find a physician that will thoroughly examine your case, and suggest treatment options for you that will draw from every specialty of medicine. Generally Dr. Attaman likes to try conservative treatment options such as physical therapy before invasive options such as pain reducing injections and surgery. Therefore if massage therapy is best for your condition, that will be offered. Though he does everything to prevent it, if Dr. Attaman thinks you require surgery, you will be referred to the best surgeons in the state. Dr. Attaman offers many dozens of treatment options for every type of pain, and takes pride in being honest with his patients about their choices. He will not waste your valuable time repeating treatments that have failed you. If you have already had dozens of sessions of physical therapy and chiropractic, tried dozens of medications over the years, and in general are "fed up" with nothing working for you, Dr. Attaman will promptly and appropriately offer you much more advanced pain management options in which he is extensively trained. Dr. Attaman is always amazed at the treatment options available to patients who have been suffering from pain for even decades. Dr. Attaman is board certified and Anesthesiology-fellowship trained in the medical subspecialty of Pain Medicine and Interventional Pain Management. He is also residency trained and board certified in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He is one of only a few with such extensive qualifications in the state of Washington. Click here to learn more about Dr. Attaman's board certifications with the American Board of Medical Specialties. He is expert at diagnosing and treating every form of pain, ranging from common back pain to face pain to cancer pain. He uses pain reducing injections and procedures to combat difficult to treat pain conditions. He will guide his treatments to help reduce or eliminate your need for pain medications. He will advise your primary care physician on the best ways to treat your pain. In addition, he has had extensive training in integrative and "alternative" medicine. He has trained extensively with some of the most prominent alternative medicine physicians, including Dr. Joseph Mercola (naturopathic medicine), Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt (neural therapy), and late Dr. Thomas Dorman (prolotherapy). Dr. Attaman's goal as your physician is to offer you the best of both conventional and alternative medicine for a truly integrative approach to your pain issues.
