They'll get you addicted to painkillers then get you in their very own Suboxone clinic to fix it - one stop shopping for opiate addiction!

Family doctors are getting scared to keep prescribing pain medication. My doctor is decreasing my pain meds and in return I am hurting worse. I don't know if a pain specialist is where to go or what to do??

Any recommendations to a place in Warren or Barren County? Actual good and understanding physicians!

I am going to call tomorrow and hope I can get in. I hope I don't have to go through a ton of tests again. This is financially draining.

You have to have a referral from a doctor to go to a pain clinic. If you don't have recent MRI's and stuff you'll have to have them done. Or whatever testing you need to get a diagnosis. They're not going to prescribe medication without a valid and confirmed diagnosis.

My impression was they are horrible people, the staff are rude and could care less about you. The secretaries sneer at people behind their back. Expect to pay about five hundred dollars to talk to someone for a few minutes.

There are 2 divisions at Interventional pain management. One gives the injections and the
other is the Medical management division where they treat the pain with medications and they are wonderful to work with.

I don't mean to sound like I am only concerned about medications. The truth is medications are a part of my daily life. My current physician has informed me his office can no longer manage chronic pain and write scripts for pain meds so I have to decide between here or Glasgows TJ Pavillion. Do drs at pain clinics have these same problems as the family drs?

If you are a current patient here, do you feel like they are understanding of your pain control? Also, staying up to date on new ways out there to make you better?

Primary Care Associates in Glasgow. He said it is due to new Ky laws. He told me ofcourse he could write something if someone came in with some kind of emergency. Broken leg,etc.... but no longer writing for monthly meds. This includes Lyrica & Lortabs.

I don't mind going to pain specialist I guess. I just don't want to hear another dr tell me he is controlled by laws on how to treat me. Feels like this is wrong. Understand why though,but must be another way

The new laws do not prevent them from writing it buts its alot of work and most primary care docs won't do it anymore.
