Kevin Hartley, NP

I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky. I served in the United States Army, active/reserve, for over two decades with tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horne of Africa. I dedicated many years to attending school, slowly climbing the clinical ladder to get here from being a medic. I joined Premier Pain Treatment Institute in 2020 after years in critical care and feel I have a unique perspective when treating chronic pain patients. I have had multiple back surgeries and feel that I can relate to some of the struggles that my patients are facing.
