Anisa F. Gopalani, MD has been prac- ticing pain medicine for ten years. Dr. Gopalani’s medical education began when she graduated from the Universi- ty of Texas at Austin with High Honors and then attended the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Texas. She completed residency training at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas where she served as Chief Resident. Dr. Gopalani then completed a fellowship in Pain Management with the De- partment of Anesthesiology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Since 2006, she has been a partner physician beside Dr. Sims at North Lakes Pain Consultants. Re- cently she and her partner Dr. Sims opened North Pines Surgery Center located in North Conroe. “My partner (Dr.Sims) and I saw a need for an outpatient surgery cen- ter in the North Conroe, Huntsville area because of its central location and we wanted to provide those patients with the highest quality of care.” When asked Dr. Sims had this to say, “We wanted an extension of our practice to make it more convenient and more cost effective for our patients.”
We are excited to report our recent partnership with Sam Houston State University and Lonestar College Montgom- ery to offer students numerous internships, both clinical and administrative. Starting in February 2016 sixty nursing students from SHSU will do their clinical ro- tations in the department of Behavioral Health. In addition, Aspire is now offering Music Therapy as an additional ac- tivity for our behavioral health patients twice a week, through a licensed music therapist and students from SHSU. The music therapists will monitor progress and develop group treatment plans based on patients needs and weekly sessions.
