Wondering

Winchester, KY

I was wondering if this was a good place to go for good pain management. I'm not an addict or a pill pusher, just someone trying to get proper treatment. If anyone has info on the mention Center, info will appreciated.
Thank you.

I found the Pain Treatment Center to be a bit overwhelming. It's difficult to see different doctors some visits, while saying there are good doctors there. Be prepared to have a GOOD reference, and have proper documentation of legitimate pain.
I have found that Commonwealth Pain Management is a better fit for me; same rules, same tests, same medication. Yet I only see ONE doctor, and the same nurses. As long as you want real treatment, I would suggest either, and I wish you the best on your journey.

Thank you for replying. I do want real treatment and do not want to be treated like an outcast, if that makes sense. So many people put labels on pain patients, doctors and their facilities included. I'm not looking for Doctors that are on a power trip either. Just someone to treat me professionally, courteously, and responsibly. It is difficult, and irritating, when you see different doctors because you have to go through everything you've already said over and over. So I completely understand that.
I do have proper documentation, about 7 years worth, recent MRI's, X Rays. I'm not sure what you meant by references though? I've been to the same GP for about 7-8 years, the last GP, I was a patient for about 16 years, but back then there wasn't anything wrong with me.
I will look into the Commonwealth Pain Management too.

Sounds as if you are on the right path; and I do relate completely. As for a reference, make sure you ate being 'referred' by a good GP. It sounds like you have all your ducks in a row :) Best wishes.

Never heard of Advanced Care Center. As for Lexington, there are a few good ones. As mentioned, Pain Treatment on Pasadena although they are a large group. Same with Spine and Brain. Commonwealth is good or so I hear, but they are in EKY. Central Kentucky Wellness is in Lexington and reputable, but strict. Small clinic, but they don't take any crap. Honestly, not many more out there. Good luck.

Commonwealth is in Frankfort, or Versailles; with offices in the local hospitals.

The pain treatment center is nothing more than a pill mill!!! This place should be shut down. The junkies wonder all over the parking lot smoking and are unattractive for the area.

You must be thinking of the wrong place. The Pain Treatment Center of the Bluegrass is mostly an intervential pain treatment facility. One of the strictest I've ever seen.

Your primary care provider should be able to recommend a facility if you have a legitimate need for pain management. If they don't think you do, you probably don't.

We are finding more and more people don't have a PCP. They go to Urgent Treatment Centers, Wal-Mart clinics and such rather than a family doc. The days of the small town family doc or almost gone. A report I read said that less than 30% of docs now practice in a family practice and following that trend it will be less than 17% in 2017. Doctors are going the commercial route because they get good pay and better hours while patients are looking for the cheapest care they can find. It is a Wal-Mart society with everything being a transaction. The biggest bang for your buck so to speak. So if they have a PCP then they could get a recommendation, but so many don't and that is a huge problem.

Advanced pain care has three locations (or did not sure if hustonville is still open) but Irvine as well as Lexington. I worked there and can tell you this much. The women that runs the place is two faced and dirty to her employees and patients. They have some legitimate patients but a lot aren't. Frequently screw up.appointments put patients on wrong day or not at all. Take months to get referrals, staff changes like socks, and the women that run it have a buddy relationship which is unethical at best with their drug screener. One of the reasons they are still in business is they accept Medicare and medicaid and handover whatever with little questions. They schedule patients exactly on 30 days and only give that so if they are forced to reschedule they may go a month or more before they can be seen again depending on location and their mood. Patients get triple booked sometimes and we would frequently be there at 6 waiting to see 2 o clock patients. Also they keep doling out the scrips and unless you do something incredibly illegal like trying to forge them you will stay a patient. But this is not because they care, they will make fun of you behind your back or when you call in. It is your need for their services that they know they can get away with this attitude. To the druggies I didn't care, bit the real patients my heart broke and often the ones trying to do it right were the ones that got screwed the most. Another joke is what used to be spine and brain Neuro across from central baptist. tell you 8 hr wait before you could be seen and then it might be cancelled ? Every other office I know tells you hey doc had an emergency I'm sorry need to reschedule or it is likely to be several hours. Most people would understand and appreciate that. They don't even do that. In addition they still bill themselves as neurologists but have changed their name and all associations to pain management. Makes one wonder why when you are across the street from a hospital that gives privledges to any physician unlike UK where you must be on their staff you feel the need to transition to pain management. Because a larger patient base and more willing to put up with your crap. I certainly wouldn't wait 8 hrs no notice and have appt cancelled by a neurosurgeon but a junkie on disability (not calling all on disability junkies by any means) has nothing better to do and will.
