I became hysterical and when my husband got home I fell down on the floor and just begged him to kill me because I couldn’t do my job, I couldn’t be a wife, I couldn’t take care of my child, and there was no reason for me to go on. – Jane (interviewee)
"The Echenberg Institute for Pelvic and Sexual Pain"
Expanding Practice to New York City
Dr. Echenberg is now seeing patients in Upper East Side Manhattan
In a serious effort to pass forward his expertise, Dr. Echenberg is now seeing all new patients at the site of EMH Physical Therapy studio at 1317 East 3rd Avenue, 6th Floor, NYC, NY. Followup patients will be seen there as well as in his present office in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. All correspondence by phone, e-mail, fax and regular mail will remain the same as before for all new and previous patients. Dr. Echenberg's plan will be to see patients and mentor other physicians and practitioners at least 2 days weekly at the New York City location as well as at his current location in Bethlehem, PA.
All contact with us for any further information, appointments and any other correspondence will only be through Pennsylvania office:
623 W. Union Blvd. #5 Bethlehem, PA 18018
phone: 610-868-0104 fax: 610-868-0204 e-mail: email@example.com
Appointment Options: Any request for making an appointment must be accompanied by New Patient Paperwork
We have now seen patients from 28 different states and 8 different countries
We are making these changes for many reasons, but primarily to expand the scope of Dr. Echenberg's expertise in order to help raise awareness for other practitioners interested in his unique model of care regarding persistent pelvic, genital and sexual pain disorders. Our program has now seen patients (both women and men) from at least 28 different states and from 8 countries outside the US. About 1300 women and men have benefited from his knowledge, diagnostic skills, and unique combinations of non-surgical therapeutic techniques over the past decade. There is no one elsewhere who spends the amount of time on your first visit to educate and "connect the dots" concerning your particular complex of symptoms that have led so many of you to have multiple surgeries, multiple invasive diagnostic studies, and to have seen many different specialists and still have no clear answers as to why you have not been helped.
Dr. Echenberg's combination of using the most current neuroscience on chronic pain processing, a very personalized bio-psychosocial model approach, and his 40 years of medical experience working in the pelvic region all explain the "difference" experienced by patients in our program compared to any others elsewhere in the world. Many of our new patients had already given up hope of finding any significant relief of their symptoms and soon realize there is a way out of pain and suffering through a combination of integrative care, compassion, state of the art knowledge of pain itself, and a dedicated staff to help restore hope and purpose in your life. We receive many requests from all over the US and the world and we find it discouraging that there are so many women and men with genital pain (clitoral, vulvar, penile, vaginal, etc.), PGAD (persistent genital arousal disorders), painful sexual intimacy, as well as bladder, lower bowel, lower abdominal, low back, buttock, tailbone, groin and hip painful issues. It is time for an effective model of care to emerge that has now been evolving in our program since 2001
