Dr. Fledderjohann started her career as a pain psychologist in 2013 and currently works as the Director of the Pain Management Clinic at San Mateo Medical Center, a safety-net hospital.  She was hired to develop Northern California’s sole functional restoration program in a county hospital setting. She leads an interdisciplinary team whose mission is to deescalate medications and procedures and teach patients to increase function by applying holistic modalities. Dr. Canter feels passionately about serving the county’s disenfranchised population, and it is her mission to provide state-of-the-art services and evidenced-based medicine to the patients she serves.
