I'd also like to hear from someone about their experience with this place.

Anybody???

Who's the doctor(s)? What's their protocol for prescribing narcotics? What insurances (if any) do they accept?

I realize I could call them and find out some of this info, but I'd really like to hear from someone who's been there.

Thanks!

What is the connection with so many people from Manchester, KY deciding to seek pain management from this group?
I find it peculiar that they do not accept insurance and do not conduct MRI or X-Ray services themselves? I think these questions are in need of being answered! Pill mills are a definite problem and using a strange set of protocols and procedures to cover up the terrible nature of creating addictive behaviors is not an answer to solving that problem. Proper pain management takes addiction into account and offering narcotics for those afflicted with the disease is not the answer.

What?? There are people traveling to this "clinic" all the way from Kentucky? That doesn't sound like what I'm looking for...

I don't know what the deal is but I would WELCOME some input from people who have been seen or are currently being seen there!

I know they have been advertising in the local newspaper looking for "law abiding citizens" looking for pain relief but all the medical professionals I have spoken with seem to have no knowledge about this place. I live nearby and drove by there the other day and noticed there were a bunch of police in the parking lot with a crowd gathered around. They were still there over an hour later. Not sure what was up but have seen people lined up first thing in the morning. I'd be careful about places like that.

This is a legitimate place for pain management.The workers their are from the Dea.A lot of Kentucky people go their because their Dr won't prescribe these kinds of medication unless you agree to have surgery .My opinion is that if you have pain and have the mri are ct scan are medical proof your pain should be managed know matter where the persons from.

yes they will do a back ground check so if you've ever been charged with any trafficking charges you are wasting your time ..These people are straight up and if they catch you like bringing in urine they will call police and if you say I took are someone gave me a pain killer they will call police and they will tell you that it's against the law to share any medication ..most of the people from Ky. Are either drug seeking, or dealers very few actually are their for painmeds for themselves
Thankful

HOPE is legit!! I lost my insurance so couldn't go to Augusta Health because it was too expensive. My orthopedic doctor actually recommended I go to the HOPE Clinic because I have xrays and MRI results. The workers are former DEA and they do random urine tests and background checks for prescriptions every time.

ive been there and no before sombody tellsl me im drug searching im not im just looking for a good doctor to help me with my back problems and get my life back. The place is a joke. They told me on the phone that it was 250 first vist i got there and they they jacked the price up 50 dollars the doctor asked me where i hurt then jabbed me in the center of my spine and said did this hurt? It hurt enough to make me almost jump off the table and get tears in my eyes from the pain. i have a bruise there now He then looked at me and told me to stop faking and suck it up and that i was a drug addict and told me to leave right away never looked at my mri report or anything. I walked out in tears and im a adult. I have 2 sliped disks that the mri report points out. I have a clean record and a clean drug test. Please i advise nobody go to that place its hell and i waited 6 hours to be seen. I dont want anybody who is in real pain to go through what i did.This place needs to be shut down asap

The doctor at this clinic is legitimate as well as the rest of the staff. The negative comments that have been previously posted are from either people who were trying to obtain prescriptions without a legitimate reason or from ones that didn't follow the rules. This place is not for someone looking to just score. You must have documentation of your pain, you must be willing to follow the rules, and you must be honest. I have a family member who is a patient and they definitely are in need of their pain meds. They are very grateful for this doctor. If you truly are in need of pain medication to function and to lead a productive life this doctor is a blessing and will help you in any way possible. If you are like a few of the others posting negative comments stating they were cut off or dismissed there is a reason why. Don't make an appointment thinking you are going to hand over some money and walk out with scripts. No way! And yes, your first appointment will take a few hours. It's because the staff is very thorough and will check your entire history before sending you in for your exam with the doctor. Everyone that works at this practice is upfront and honest from checkin checkout. If you are someone in need with ahhistory of documemted pain issues then you will be treated with the utmost importance and respect. If you are an addict or a liar just looking for a quick fix then you will not have a pleasant visit. I'm just being honest.

I just have a quick question......why would someone travel 5 hours to a pain clinic for a tooth ache anyway? Don't you have a local dentist or at least one that is closer than traveling five hours? I've never heard of any condition of the teeth that causes long term chronic pain.

Also, a person usually schedules an appt with a pain clinic as a last resort or for treatmemt for a chronic pain condition. I've never heard of someone scheduling an appt with a pain management clinic for dental pain.

The doctor along with the Dea agents have reviewed your medical records with a fine tooth comb before you even step into the exam room. Your medical records and all mri/xray/ct scan reports are reviewed with you upon intake (you and the intake officer face to face). Then the intake officer reviews everything with the doctor before the patient enters the exam room. This doctor isn't going to be played for a fool and knows your life history before you step into his exam room. He is very kind and sympathetic to every patient. He is actually a chronic pain patient himself. I don't believe for a minute he never reviewed your mri and tried to hurt you by pressing hard onto a bulging disc. This is just not his character. Also he would question anyone he suspects that isn't there for the right reasons. He isn't the type to name call. Are you sure he wasn't asking you about your history and asking if you were an addict instead of pointing and calling you one for no reason at all? If you were there for 6 hours there's a good reason why....I bet it was something was questionable about your medical history and they contacted your previous doctor to verify your history. Your story doesn't add up nor is very believable.

to the person titled 'your story sounds fishy" I have to suspect you are either the doctor there, or close to him, maybe employed there. You must also believe these places are just perfect, because they're hooking you up with what you want or something... Theres a reason people refer to alot of pain clinics as "pill mills". I know a lady in Staunton, VA , who goes to a pain clinic, she gets enough meds to treat a medium size country!!! Does anyone, even in the worst pain need 300 10mg methadones, 600 5mg percocets, 200 levorphanols, & now 200 oxymorphones??? I am friends with someone who knows her, & also knows about all the money she's raking in. Profitable for her or not, can you really imagine ANYONE taking this amount of narcotic painkillers???? THIS sounds fishy to me!!!!
