Our History Who We Are

Professionals Depend on Gebauer

"My patients are especially thankful for dedication to excellence in order to put them at ease during an especially stressful time. As a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Pain Ease has allowed me to accomplish this successfully."


"Our patient is always our chief concern.  But as you know, no margin - no mission, so weighing cost benefits is an important part of a nurse manager’s job. The issues to consider regarding Pain Ease are the costs associated with failed IV starts, the decrease in time nurses spend calming anxious patients and the increase in patient satisfaction.  Higher patient satisfaction translates into higher HCAHPS scores."
