When the players with the Tampa Bay Lightning need a doctor they can trust, they turn to Dr. Tim Bain. He is the doctor in the Lightning locker room keeping players healthy on and off the ice.

But caring for the Lightning and other top professional and elite athletes is just one of Dr. Bain’s passions.

A leading innovator in the healthcare industry, Dr. Bain is passionate about reforming healthcare to be less focused on medication and surgeries when people are sick, and more focused on optimizing health and keeping people well. That’s why he brought together a team of innovative specialists and formed B3 Medical.

A former research scientist at the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Bain is a graduate of the Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership Program at Brown University, where he won the Inaugural Healthcare Leadership Award for Innovation in Healthcare. He also holds a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University and a B.S. in Biology with a focus in Psychology from Manhattan College.

Dr. Bain’s greatest passion is family, his wife and two children…and somehow he also finds time to coach dozens of children, including his son, in little league hockey.

Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Ramirez joined B3 Medical 3 years ago with a specific agenda to create a new and innovative approach to treating patients who suffer from intense and chronic pain.

Recognized as a leader in the practice of Interventional Pain Management, and frustrated by the current system that relies on opioids and prescription medications to mask a patient’s pain, Dr. Ramirez decided to create a new regimen of safe and effective minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures that get to the source of the pain. This allows him to identify the cause of the pain and correct the problem to provide true long-term pain relief.

Dr. Ramirez is Board Certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology, with a sub-certification of Pain Medicine (Anesthesiology) from the University of Florida. As the Medical Director at B3 Medical, Dr. Ramirez is a leader in all aspects of Interventional Pain Management including Nerve Blocks, Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), Percutaneous Decompression and Spinal Cord Stimulation.

A family man, Dr. Ramirez is a Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Gator fan and an avid boater. He was born and raised in Ft. Bragg, NC and loves living and practicing medicine in Florida.
