Please join us as we celebrate the opening of our new facility on Wednesday, June 2nd at 11:30am! Dr. Ronald Long was an Anesthesiologist at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Goldsboro for 15 years. During Dr. Long’s employment at Wayne Memorial Hospital, he served as Department of Anesthesiology Chairman, and in 1984, he established Wayne Anesthesia.

As his passion and focus changed to the pain industry, Dr. Long resigned from Wayne Memorial Hospital in 1999 to pursue a career in pain management. After additional education, Dr. Long opened Goldsboro Pain Medicine in 2002. The practice grew quickly, and his multifaceted approach was far reaching in eastern North Carolina. Dr. Long changed the practice name in 2006 to Eastern Regional Pain Specialists to better reflect the clinics presence across the eastern part of the state.

In 2014, Mrs. Tiffani Hoefer, PA-C joined the practice, and in 2020, the addition of Carmen Cestaro, FNP-C rounded out the specialized team.

Eastern Regional Pain Specialist is pleased to announce that Dr. Lathan McCall will be joining the practice on August 1st. Dr. McCall is completing his fellowship in pain management at Massachusetts General Hospital. A native of Alabama, Dr. McCall obtained his M.D. degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His wife, Caroline, grew up in the Raleigh area, and they have two young children. Please join us in welcoming Dr. McCall and his family to our community

The goal of Eastern Regional Pain Specialists is to relieve both acute and chronic pain, increase everyday activities, and facilitate a more productive and balanced lifestyle for the individual. The comprehensive team approach includes, but is not limited to, physical therapy, education and coping skills, consultation, pharmacological modalities, non-surgical procedures in the on-site procedure center, and continued care visits.
