Dr. Andrei Dokukin, M.D., Consulting Medical Director
Dr. Dokukin is Triple Board Certified through (1) the American Board of Addiction, (2) Pain Medicine, and (3) Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He received his medical education at the State University of New York, after being inspired to practice medicine after his extensive career as a professional ballet dancer. He studied Dance at Juilliard in New York, and performed with the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) for five years. His postgraduate training included work in Spine, Pain, Sports Medicine, Internal Medicine and Rehabilitation.
While performing for President Gerald Ford, he broke his back. His own experience informed his current passion for responsible treatment of chronic pain and ending the over prescription of opioids in medicine.
He has also presented on \”Patterns of opiate and illicit drug abuse in suburban California\’s chronic pain management clinic population\” at the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPMR) in 2011. He maintains a private practice in Lakewood, CA
As one patient shares, “Dr. Dokukin is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about helping people dealing with chronic pain and addiction. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a physician with a broad understanding of medicine.”
