Whats up with this place, my husband who really really needs in a reputable pain clinic cant get any service, we did all they asked, theyve had his paperwork for some time now, they never answer the phones, and voicemail is always full, he refuses to go to the hope clinic because of all the bad talk, anyone know?

this doctor absolutely does not care about his patients or his staff, he puts the staff thru hell having them call in patients early almost daily just because the dr only wants to be there and work 2 hours, then when all these patients show up theres no dr to be found, he leaves them all waiting for hours, if he dont want to work why is he a dr? I guess cause he knws hes a pain clinic dr and the people arent gonna leave, what a idiot dr, and hes not gonna be there almost the whole month of november, wtf? What a joke, does anyone know about the other clinics around? Not the hope clinic either, is there a new one across from the hospital? I know Beckley Pain but I have no referral now.

Maybe it should change its name to, The Irresponsible Pain Clinic? Is the doctor, Dr. Gordinho? If so, he practices Internal Medicine & Nephrology, with other offices/patients to attend to. He's had a past disciplinary action with the Board, which you can read here:

Here is an email addy you might be able to try reaching him at to voice your concerns, while requesting a referral somewhere else that can possibly be more attentive to your needs. Since he's as busy as he is though, I'd doubt he uses it:

J. Jorge Gordinho, MD

Seen this Dr. in Dec. and by Feb. received a letter he will no longer treat me. Came from out of state and he took my case. Wanted to change my meds to super heavy narcs and I didn't want them, also used medicaid my second visit. He likes cash pays drug users. I am still getting a bill from his office even though medicaid was used. I called the office to see why he would no longer take me. My urine tests were normal. I had the same pain Dr. for 4 years out of state, no problems. Why would a Dr. take you just to cut you off. The office refused to give me a reason saying the Dr. didn't have to have a reason. So I was forced into 5 weeks worth of detox until I found another Dr. I brought all my medical records and set up seeing Dr. Gordinho before moving to this state. His care is unethical.$260 cash for the first visit. Instead of helping me he hurt me through a dangerous unsupervised detox. Don't go to him. Patients wait in his office for hours then he walks in all happy. Why make appt. times when you know you won't be there? His P.A. is stupid, no brains. Where did they get their license?
