LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Adventist Health Clear Lake has welcomed a fourth new provider for 2020, board-certified anesthesiologist and pain management physician Ronald J. Botelho, MD.

Dr. Botelho is a strong believer in caring for the whole person and getting to the root cause of an individual’s pain. This means a comprehensive approach to each patient’s experiences and values and a treatment plan that will suit them best.

“I was drawn to Adventist Health Clear Lake because of the experience that its president David Santos has in developing pain management programs,” said Dr. Botelho. “The structure of the interdisciplinary program here combines physical medicine and rehabilitation with psychologists, physical therapy, occupational therapy and a workout space for ongoing exercise.”

Dr. Botelho brings more than 30 years of experience using innovative treatments to help patients live life with less pain. He believes that proper management of chronic pain from migraines, back pain, joint pain or pain as a result of a procedure or injury can help you get back to a normal life.

“Dr. Botelho is a welcome addition to our team and a great fit for expanding our interventional pain management services to Lakeport and the surrounding communities,” says Brent Dupper, executive director of physician and outpatient services for Adventist Health Clear Lake. “He brings expertise in anesthesiology and a dedicated approach to pain management and strives for the best possible patient outcomes.”

Board certified in interventional pain management and anesthesiology Dr. Botelho is a strong believer in caring for the whole person, not just their disease state. “Success with pain management is not qualified by how much or how little pain someone has,” says Dr. Botelho. “The goal is to help with pain, and more importantly, to make individuals more functional.”

A graduate of the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Botelho received his anesthesia training and completed a critical care fellowship at Harvard University before completing a pain management fellowship at the University of California, Davis.

Dr. Botelho will see patients at the Adventist Health Clear Lake Medical Office located at 801 11th St., Lakeport. Patients may schedule an appointment by calling 707-263-3746.
