Neurological Spine & Pain

Priscilla J. Ross MD
Dr. Ross is originally from Illinois and founded Neurological Spine and Pain in 2014 in Savannah, GA after previously practicing at Optim Orthopedics for 7 years.  
She earned her B.S. in biology from Illinois Univeristy in 1997 and her medical degree from Southern Illinois University - College of Medicine in 2002.

She completed a one year internship in Orlando at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and then completed both her anesthesiology residency and pain fellowship at the Medical College of Georgia, where she utilized innovative technology and clinical research to evaluate and treat complex, chronic pain problems.

She strongly believes in an individualized and multidisciplinary approach to pain management.  She works closely with the area internists, physical therapists, chiropractors, psychiatrists, neurologists, and spine surgeons to insure that each patient has the optimal individualized treatment plan.

In her spare time, she enjoys travel with her beautiful family as well as staying physically active with triathalons.
