Maia Chakerian, M.D.

Dr. Maia Chakerian is a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Management Specialist, and is the founder and principal investigator at Samaritan Center for Medical Research.

“My philosophy in treating pain is to treat early and aggressively, work towards minimizing disability, and utilize all effective and appropriate pain management options available.”  At Sereno Pain Management our goal is to be accessible and responsive to our patients’ needs.  We pride ourselves on taking the time to get to know our patients.  We do not rush through appointments, and we aim to be flexible with scheduling appointments at our patients’ convenience.
