As a board-certified and fellowship-trained interventional pain specialist, David Adrian Olvera, MD, enjoys hearing how his work helps patients overcome chronic pain and improve their lives and relationships.
“It’s rewarding when you have family members come back and say, ‘Before we met you, it was difficult to be around this person. Now we have them back and we enjoy them again.’ They get their quality of life back that was missing for years.”

Dr. Olvera performs injection therapy for patients who are suitable candidates, along with nerve blocks, epidural injections (under fluoroscope when necessary for patient safety), spinal cord simulator trials and other advanced treatments to relieve pain.

“I provide personal care and make sure patients feel that their needs are always addressed at every visit.”

Dr. Olvera is employed as a clinical faculty physician at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler under the UT Tyler School of Medicine.

Dr. Olvera, first of all, came into the room right on time at my scheduled time! He was very personable and kind. He explained everything very well and I look forward to seeing him again!

I have PTSD related to medical professionals, due to childhood mistreatment and more recent trauma related to both doctors and nurse. Dr. Olvera is an amazing doctor and is able to see to my treatment without triggering my PTSD or even anxiety. I highly recommend him for anyone with white coat syndrome or moderate to severe anxiety. Or anyone who just wants a doctor who speaks to them like a real person who is in pain and needs help. I don't personally know any of his history, but he feels like a person who became a doctor specifically to help people, not for money or social clout.
