  • Our Story - Comprehensive Pain Specialists
    Duration: 03:36


When Drs. Peter Kroll, Timothy Arney, Steven Dickerson and Gilberto Carrero founded Comprehensive Pain Specialists (CPS) in 2005, they envisioned a group of experienced physicians and staff dedicated to identifying and treating chronic pain.

This vision inspired a decade of service in Tennessee helping patients with chronic pain. With 50+ locations throughout the Southeast, CPS combines evolving, precision diagnostics and innovative therapies to assist each patient with their chronic pain management needs.


Pain management, also called pain medicine, is a type of specialized medical care. It is designed to minimize the impact of surgical pain or chronic pain. Chronic pain, in particular, can be difficult to control. It can sometimes be impossible to cure. Pain management treatment can help reduce pain. It can help patients enjoy a better quality of life.
