David has over twenty five years of experience providing professional anesthesia services across all patient populations. He earned a BS in Nursing from Texas Christian University in 1993, a Masters in Health Sciences from Texas Wesleyan in 1998, and completed the Advanced Pain Management Non-Surgical Pain Management Fellowship through Texas Christian University in 2017-18. He was one of the first 50 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist in America to become board certified in Non-Surgical Pain Management (NSPM-C). He relied on his extensive clinical experiences providing acute pain management techniques to form Maverik Medical Education with his good friend and coworker Dan Nash in January, 2010. After completion of his pain fellowship, he opened Republic Pain Specialists in March, 2019. Republic Pain Specialists was the first office-based pain practice owned by a CRNA in the state of Texas.

Reducing the pain in our communities, and its countless untoward effects, has become a passion for him. David has a simple philosophy … he wants you to leave him feeling better than when you met him. When not treating pain or teaching others how to treat pain he cherishes time with his wife of 40 years, Dena, his three children and five grandchildren, and training quarter horses on their small cattle ranch.
