Customized Treatment for Chronic Pain and Addiction

VMW is known throughout the state of Minnesota for its chronic pain and substance addiction treatment. Under the guidance of Svetlana Zaydman, DO, and Ashwin George, MD, VMW patients receive customized treatment that identifies their pain or addiction problem at its source, creates goals, and puts a plan into action that helps achieve these goals. We work with CREATE, INC in Hennepin and Dakota counties, Canvas Health in Washington and Chisago county, and Recovery is Happening and NuWay in Olmstead county to provide addiction counseling and recovery services for our patients. We are also a member of the Fairview Physicians Association (FPA) and can refer out a full range of medical services.

The goal is to help our patients improve their health and comfort so they can return to being their best selves. Pain management strategies are personalized to each patient and often incorporate physical and interventional pain therapies. Addiction treatment includes therapies and support to help with dependence on pain pills, methamphetamines, benzodiazepines, heroin, and alcohol.


COVID-19 and Flu Testing and Treatment

In addition to fighting chronic pain and the opioid epidemic, Valley Medical and Wellness is also fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer drive-thru COVID and flu testing with same-day results. If you test positive, we provide convenient telehealth appointments to prescribe Paxlovid and Tamiflu to relieve COVID and influenza symptoms. VMW is also a COVID-19 testing referral lab for community providers.

STI and Sexual Wellness Testing and Treatment

VMW also offers testing for the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and women's sexual wellness issues, including fungal infections. Our STI testing is fast and completely confidential and we can prescribe treatment via a remote telemedicine visit.
