I sustained a pretty bad back injury years ago and need a new doctor. The one I was seeing is very shady and doesn't seem to care about his patients. I smoke occasionally as it helps my severe anxiety, so I need one that can overlook that. Please don't bash me on this thread, I have a legitimate need, not a need for a lecture. Thank you!

It is very hard now adays to find a doc to look over anything other than what he prescribes you cause of the regulations and lawsuits. I dont know of any that would ,but i will ask around and see if anyone knows of any. I would like to find one myself so i can smoke again.

Dr Ramish has you sit in the waiting room for hours to see for a few mins and shoot you up with a mixture of non pain meds that tend to make things worse, I personally wouldn't recommend

Go to the emergency room and tell them about your back, they will refer you to Ramesh. He will start you out on 60 7.5 Lortab, after a few months he will up it to 90, after a couple more months he will up it to Percocet 10.

sometimes people need something for pain AND DOCTORS are so afraid to even give them something strong. A shame that a lot of elderly and hadicapped people have to suffer due to the pill heads who find doctor mills. I've had doctors look at me when the first see me and say "I want to make it clear I never write prescriptions for pain medicine" - WOW.
Just a fact

Don't take FYI"s advice. Go in an emergency room. Best thing you can do. If you go and see a doctor and just say I need pills. They are gonna have suspicions .
well

well you're right but then there is the other camp that says doctors push too many narcotic pain meds. what are they supposed to do? they are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

I wouldn't recommend Ramesh... I have two discs in my back that are leaking and I was referred to him... He started me off on 5mg Percocets and gave me 90 a month for 3 months... I wanted treatment and was getting no relief so he started the injections in my back... The 3rd round, he hit a nerve that shot the worst pain of my life down my leg and paralized it like it would if you slept on your arm and it went to sleep and you couldn't move or lift it... I ended up laying in his office for over an hour before someone was able to come get me... That day, he up'd me to 90 10mg Percocets... All he wanted me to do was become an addict and be dependent on him so he could make more money... When I demanded that he send me to a neurologist instead of prescribing me pain meds, he dropped me... I had to go back to my PCP and request a referral to someone instead of a pain doc and they sent me to a neurologist... Which placed me in PT, gave me non narcotic pain meds and anti-inflammatory meds and actually helped me... Good luck with everything because I know how it is with back and neck pain... It sucks

Bowman Question

Is Bowman likely to prescribe actual pain meds on the first visit? I've been getting the run around and don't have the sick time available to go to more than one appointment for a doctor before they write me something that actually helps.
