Miranda Reed Cleaver, D.O. is a Georgia native. She grew up in Chatsworth, Georgia and attended the University of Georgia in Athens. She graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2006. After college, Dr. Cleaver continued her education and attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Georgia Campus located in Suwanee, Georgia. She then went on to complete her four years of training in Anesthesiology at McLaren Oakland Hospital, part of the Michigan State University Statewide Campus System, in Pontiac, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Following the completion of her residency training, Dr. Cleaver then completed her Fellowship in Pain Management at McLaren Oakland Hospital, part of the Michigan State University Statewide Campus System, in Pontiac, Michigan.
During her fellowship training, she performed numerous interventional procedures in all areas of pain management. Once her training was complete, Dr. Cleaver then went on to establish a pain management practice for two hospitals located in Northern Missouri. Despite a thriving practice, Dr. Cleaver always wanted to make it back to her home state, thus inspiring the creation of the Cleaver Medical Group based in Cumming, Georgia. Her professional interests include low back pain, cervical pain, complex regional pain syndrome, thoracic pain, knee and shoulder pain, discogenic pain, osteoarthritis, and spinal cord stimulators.
Her main reason for pursuing a pain management fellowship was to help alleviate the chronic pain and improve the quality of life of many of the patients that she saw in the hospital on a daily basis. She cannot promise a pain free life, but certainly will reduce the overall pain burden, and help improve the patient’s quality of life. Her main goal is to get each and every patient back to their previous daily functioning and activities. She has always been a bulldog at heart, whose main hobbies include spending time with family cheering on the University of Georgia Bulldogs.
Dr. Kress attended Oglethorpe University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Biopsychology and Chemistry. He completed his medical degree at Lincoln Memorial University-DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2014 and subsequently completed his Anesthesia Residency and Pain Management Fellowship at Michigan State University McLaren Oakland Hospital.
