Gary L. Reasor, MD, Interventional Pain Management Physician with Metro Pain Associates

New York City, Jun 14, 2019 (Issuewire.com) – Dr. Reasor is an interventional pain management physician who is currently serving patients at his private practice – Metro Pain Associates – in Louisville, Kentucky. There, he and his staff believe the key to pain relief is understanding and knowing that each person’s pain is unique. What works for one person may not work the same for another, which is why they use an interventional approach and practice multidisciplinary forms of treatment.

Dr. Reasor has been named Louisville Magazine’s Top Doctor for over three years and strives to restore hope in patients’ daily activities by offering the most innovative, cutting-edge and proven procedures to optimize relief.

Dr. Reasor was born in August of 1955 in St. Matthews, Kentucky. He was raised in St. Matthews, Lyndon, and Middletown. In 1973, he graduated from Eastern High School. After working one year with his father, Lloyd Reasor, who was a self-employed electrician, Dr. Reasor moved to Peru, South America, where he served a 2-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Upon returning to Louisville, he met and married his wife, Susan, in 1977. Their son, Lloyd, was born in May of 1979.

Having wanted to be a physician since he was 12 years old and with the encouragement of a family friend (Wayne Mortenson, DMD, who later built Mortenson Family Dental), Dr. Reasor enrolled in Jefferson Community College, graduating with an Associate of Science (AS) degree in 1982. He then transferred to the University of Louisville and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree with high honors in 1984. He was accepted into the University of Louisville School of Medicine that same year and went on to graduate in 1988.

Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Reasor was accepted into the University of Louisville’s Department of Anesthesiology, where he completed a 1-year internship and a 3-year residency. It was during his residency that he became interested in the treatment of problems of pain. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Reasor accepted a position with Hamilton Anesthesia Associates in Hamilton, Ohio, where he worked for 6 years. During this time, he completed the examinations necessary to become board certified not only in anesthesiology, but also in pain management. He became even more interested in pain management and started the pain treatment program at Fort Hamilton-Hughes Memorial Hospital.

In 1998, Dr. Reasor had the opportunity to return to Louisville to go into practice with several other physicians practicing only pain medicine. This eventually led him to go into solo private practice and to start Metro Pain Associates in 2004.
