the place on netherland inn road is a trap set up by the feds to snare the license plates and info on the patients/drug addicts that go there for scripts,anyone who goes there will be put under surveilance.

Grey pharmacy, Marcums, PS, Caves, all have filled mine. They have to change it to another prescriber to fill it.
That's illegal. Thanks for the tip, we'll look into it.

I have severe pain and I am far from an abuser of my pain meds. But my pain Center in Johnson City is giving me 120 Roxycodone 15mg a month. I was ran over by an 18 wheeler and I am treated like a kinky because I requested going to the 30mg tablets. I have a wife and a son, and I need my medicine to be better active as a father and husband. Where van I go in KPT to get better treatment?

I paid my 450$$ today not to mention driving all the way there to get my 720 methadone and 360 roxies. No pharmacy anywhere I found would fill it.
Why would a doctor prescribe you two meds that cancel each other out? The methadone is for addiction to roxys.. doesnt make sense.. no wonder u cant get it filled.. noone is gonna touch that! Pick one or the other and stick with it.. either your an addict or a pain patient.. Im just sayin'!

Methadone doesn't cancel the effects of opiates, it is a very powerful opiate that lasts a long time in the body. That is why as addiction treatment it is fought against by so many. Like pain management, if suboxone & methadone clinics were run only by ethical, treatment directed policies rather than human doctors & nurses they would be a weapon in the fight against dugs but unfortunately, they've become another means of supply.

Being a pain patient (I am battling cancer) I know that methadone is sometimes given for pain management but ive never heard of these two drugs given together so it kinda stumped me. I'm guessing that most pharmacies are looking at it this way too. I agree, if we had doctors/nurses that really followed the rules then it would be great, but I actually heard about a suboxone doctor that makes house calls now! Anyways.. thanks for clearing it up for me.. i still think that the problem with this particular person is trying to fill them both at once but who knows.. they may be lying.

Good luck with your fight, I'll remember you in my prayers! Cancer patients are the ones these medications were intended for. And you are right, they aren't usually given together. I think the biggest problem with that particular person is that like so many, wants a pill to fix everything. We are writing a very sad chapter in our history right now.

Thank you! I find out next week if the treatments got all of the cancer or not. I was lucky to have caught the lung cancer when I did so that I had a chance to fight. Thank you for the prayers (my name is Morgan)- they are most appreciated!

I will say this, before I was diagnosed with cancer, I was a pain patient and had a hard time finding a good doctor because of all the pillheads we have in this area. I wish people that dont really need these meds would realize how fortunate they are to have a life (how would u react to being told you might die in 6 months) and get the hell off of pills. Life is precious and ppl are wasting what I am fighting to keep.. u are right, its a sad time for us right now, thats for sure.

I would like to talk to "u idiot" because i just started going to Dr Bridges because i was told he was a compassionate caring pain doc. Now i find that i can't get my scripts filled, but finally got one filled and they said they wouldn't do it again because dr had been flagged for investigation.

"Why would you go to a doctor, who's prescriptions are hard to fill?

Is that the only place that serves "pillbillies?"

Do you get your pills free, or cheap, courtesy of the hardworking taxpayers, while you sit on your azz, getting high on "meds?"

Why don't you just swap your foodstamps for pills, like so many others do around here? "

as for "WTF" there is no sign on the door that says they are hard to fill, and you have obviously never had chronic pain, and god bless you never do, as it is no fun to go through all this crap to try to have quality of life.

A great majority of patients of Dr. Bridges come from Sevierville, Newport, Knoxville and Nashville. That should be the first indication that something is wrong here.

Dr. Bridges didn't come here to serve those with chronic pain. He came to stuff his pockets full of cash before moving on. He'll surely be put away here soon, and then he'll open up business somewhere else in a couple of months only to make a small fortune from the local drug addicts, before being closed down there. Those with real chronic pain can go to real pain management clinics. I do pity and have compassion for legitimate pain sufferers; it is doctors like this one and people who abuse drugs make everything so difficult for everyone else. Find a local pharmacist, preferably from an independent store, and ask who they consider a legitimate pain clinic and from whom they'll be comfortable filling prescriptions. This will help avoid problems with getting your prescriptions filled.

You're not going to find a pharmacy that will fill those prescriptions. Any doctor that would write for that many narcotics for a patient whom he or she has never seen before is obviously just supplying their bad habit.

Just wanted to post an update that I got results of my scan and as of today, I am cancer free! Doc says I have defied all odds and beat a type of cancer that has a 10-20% survival rate! I have tons of side effects from the chemo, but, i have a life left to live and deal with it!! Oh, and I didnt have any problem whatsoever filling my prescriptions cause they were wrote by a legimate, caring, oncologist, not a drug-pushing doctor out to make a dollar.

I hope those of you searching for pills to snort or sell never find anyone to give them to you. YOU are the problem today for the ppl who really need meds getting them. Shame, Shame.

I was diagnosed with Ms 7 Yes ago, found a mass in my throat 2yrs ago with a place on my tongue coming up 8 mths ago, I have had 6 other operations and crohns disease all before 36. My problem is I tried starting my own business, have no insurance and IF decided I needed pain relief I could afford one of these 450$ every 6 mths better than a neurologists. When I did get pain medication I always thought the pharmacist was the ones that that were rude and judgmental.

As a KPT RPh, the DEA has been to my store investigating Dr. Bridges. Exchanging narcotic rxs for cash is hardly practicing medicine or compassionate. We got hip to this "clinic" early on and do not waste our time with anyone attempting to fill these rxs, and I know no pharmacy filling them.

The address on Dr. Bridges rxs used to (and may still) be that of the old Century 21 office, currently for sale. It is hard to understand what takes law enforcement so long to handle situations like this. As Chris Christie would say..."What the hell are we paying them for?"

As for pharmacists being judgemental, try standing behind a counter greeting deadbeat drug seekers day after day, year after year. Cancer patients require and request fewer pain pills than the hydroheads, eventhough they have undeniable clinical needs.

I am not origianlly from this area and now realize there are a disproportionate number of people in this region who do little more than take drugs, have illegitimate children and get on disability (and, of course, TennCare). Not exactly the Greatest Generation.

Makes you proud to be a Tennessean/American. Makes you sick to be a taxpayer.
