im from out of town. Our pain Clinic was shut down. Dr Fonn was the closest to get me in so fast. Is his website as good as it says he is? If it is i cant wait to meet him. Please tell me of any pros/cons

No! I have heard many horror stories about him. I would call Advanced Pain Center if I were you.

He doesn't like to give pain meds and people with REAL back pain need pain meds. He does like to give steroid injections!!!!

Dr. Moore is just like Fonn, he won't do medications only injections. You have to go to st. louis.

Dr. Fonn is a compassionate doctor if ever I've seen one. He takes in patients that don't normally get seen and he fights, personally, with the insurance companies to make sure their injections are covered. He does do pain medication but he doesn't over do it. I've seen, in my field, so many people who go through a doctors office just wanting pain medication. All they want is to abuse the medication. So he is there to help you, not get you high.

Believe this at your own peril. Go to STL if at all possible.

I'm new to the area and trying to research pain clinics. What are the best ones in St. Louis. I've had more injections then I care to remember and do not want to go that way again. Looking for possible physical therapy and pain medication management. No insurance so I can't afford any mistakes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Go to Barnes. Just walk into the emergency room. You will be so much better off than going to Southeast or St. Frances. And whatever you do, stay away from Dr. Fonn.

Dr. FONN IS NOT A PAIN MANAGEMENT DR! He is a dr that likes to do a big expensive surgery on you, bill your insurance, claim you are healed and then send you on your way. He does NOT treat chronic pain with monthly RX's of pain meds.

I would avoid him and SFMC. There's an investigation going on at the present by the OIG.

He used to have a red headed nurse practitioner, anyone know where she works now? Heard she got fired for not being able to prove her credentials. Who wouldn't check that out when they hired her?

If its the same one I'm thinking of she works
At advanced pain center. That place has helped with meds and injections. U don't always get to see a doc, sometimes it is the nurse practioner. The red headed one seen me in late oct and yea needless to say, she won't be seeing me again.... I made her look STUPID!!!!!!!! I have a med license and know my meds, she was tryin some bullshit!!!! Next time I go, I'm gonna have to ask b/c I question a lot of there ways. Just can't afford to go to St. Louis and their trtmnt has helped just know there's better somewhere.

Fonn is a quack, lest every time I walk behind him I hear duck noises.
