Peter M. Mullins, MD
Pain Medicine Physician
Dr. Peter Mullins believes that the highest calling in medicine is to relieve suffering. He tackles painful conditions using multiple approaches. Understanding that pain is experienced in the biological, psychological, and social spheres, and that no specific treatment is perfect for all patients, he develops personalized care plans for each individual. He finds it gratifying to help people return to the activities they enjoy.
Dr. Mullins specializes in interventional pain medicine. He offers evidence-based, minimally invasive procedures that minimize side effects by using a targeted approach. Dr. Mullins is particularly interested in cutting-edge therapies for chronic pain, including neuromodulation (nerve stimulation). He is a voracious consumer of medical literature and an active health services researcher with more than 30 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Mullins earned a bachelor of arts in psychology at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. He completed a master of arts in clinical psychology at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. He then completed a master of public health in health policy at the George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where he also earned his doctor of medicine. He completed the Harvard-Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, where he also served as a clinical fellow at Harvard Medical School. He completed a fellowship in interventional pain medicine, also at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is board-certified in emergency medicine and pain medicine.
A Washington state native, Dr. Mullins enjoys exploring the beautiful outdoors with his wife and three children, all of whom are named after Steely Dan songs. In his free time, Dr. Mullins enjoys amusing his identical twin brother.
