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.
