WELCOME TO MY HOME PAGE!
My name is Dr. Jeffrey Cass and I am a pain psychologist in the Pain Management Clinic. I would like to welcome you to my home page and would encourage you to take a few minutes to learn about me as well as explore some of the links on this page.
In addition to living a healthy lifestyle through diet, exercise, humor, and maintaining supportive relationships, I believe from personal experience that each individual is empowered to restore their health by taking an active role in their medical care. In the Pain Management Clinic at South Sacramento, our interdisciplinary team provides many resources for the chronic pain patient to improve their quality and enjoyment of life. By assisting patients in the self-management of their pain conditions, I find many patients liberated from the shackles of their pain condition.
Early life experiences likely led to my pursuing a career in psychology. Residing in West Germany as a child during the Cold War sensitized me a great deal to many cultural and social differences in our world. Relocating to San Diego, California during my adolescent years exposed me to an entirely different lifestyle in comparison to my childhood. Serving in a variety of counseling roles during my college years affirmed my interest in pursuing a degree in psychology. My doctoral training as a psychologist in South Florida allowed me to work with a large number of diverse populations, including writing a dissertation on AIDS and the African-American population.
After completing a 4-year stint as an Air Force psychologist at Edwards Air Force Base, I joined the Department of Psychiatry at Kaiser Permanente, South Sacramento, in 1995. I have had the opportunity to provide a number of services in my capacity as a psychologist at Kaiser, including offering acute psychiatric services, individual and couples therapy, work stress counseling, and health education courses. In October of 1999, I became a staff member in the Pain Management Clinic.
Today, in addition to serving on the Pain Management team, I am a very proud father of two wonderful children and have been part of the Elk Grove community through various organizations. It was during my training in South Florida that I met an extraordinary woman, my late wife Beth Bullock Cass. My hobbies include tennis, bodysurfing, soccer, skiing, hiking, and traveling.

Terms & Conditions
If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
