Since the lose of the two pain management clinic in russellville, by one moving and the other doctor losing his lin. there is no clinic for pain management, and all the other doctors in russellville are punishing DR. Mann patients for his pactice. As of now all the doctors in pope yell and conway county refuse to take new patients that need pain management and some of the doctors which I will not mention for there job security have stated that the doctor are afraid of the backwood State medical Board and the dea who issues lin. to doctors to perscribe hard medication. when did the dea get doctors lin. and before you become judgemental remember that most elderly need pain medication. about 90 percent take some form of hard medication including some of your parents. So not everyone are just junkies looking for a fix. And what if you got hurt tommorrow and need pain management as it stands now you will not get any doctor to see you. Also this is just hears say now but I hear people have called little rock and ft. smith and just about everywhere in ar. and now doctors are taking new patient for pain management and the state medical board has shut down there feedback and email because of complaint and the govenor has state he does not have any control over the medical board although he appoints them. He wrote me a reply email stating this fact and the DEA is out of his control he has quoted so why are we paying him is it just for him to sit in office and keep the seat warm. warning if your parents has a doctor now and they need pain medicine that he provides do not let them change doctors for they will not find one.

I was not one of Doctor Manns patients but i agree 100%.Doctors now wont hardly ever give pain medication and i mysely have chronic back pain i draw diability for it.Finding help has been a dead end.The dea has over stepped the line and the ones that were on it from Doctor Mann were left to go through withdrawal which that in itsself could have killed them and may have some and there the DEA should be held liable.We are losing all freedom freedom to smoke even in our own vehicles we pay for if yhere is a child in the car.Freedom to get neccessary medication.My advice to all cross the state line get away from arkansas doctors there not worth anything anymore just a bunch of cowards that wont traet there patients with what they actually need because they are afrid of the DEA.I do believe alot of lives were lost for our freedom which we are quickly losing.

That's good. The fact that those two local Pain Clinics are out is great, it'll give some people a chance to see the light. The Clinics are for profit-only organization, do you really think they want you off of their addictive meds? Of course not, then they lose money EVERY time you don't show up. You're gonna have to get off of the meds, and no, there ain't "taking it right" about it. It's not a prescription drug, it's very addicting and it's sad to see so many people handing it out like it's candy or something. You're not going to last very long if you are a Heroin Junkie, but you're right with them when you join in on Methadone. Not to mention withdrawals and side effects are way worse than getting a cheap "heroin high" feel. That's exactly what Methadone gives you, a strong narcotic high. And it doesn't take long to get immune to the drug, just like any other narcotics.

@ The anonymous comment posted June 8th - While I do appreciate your armchair views of pain management, I do not agree with them. As a person who experiences chronic pain, I cannot agree with simple bureaucratic solutions. Does knowing who gets money for the medication I need (and do not receive) help anything?

You mention strong drugs, such as heroin, and the withdrawals from such things. Did you know that such drugs extend beyond simple painkillers? How about anti-anxiety barbituates such as xanex? Anti-depressants, ADHD medication, and a variety of other drugs will mark as "narcotic" if you ever have the bad luck to have to take a ridiculous urine test just to get a job.

Do these ingredients make the patient a bad person? No! Heroin, cocaine and barbituates originally were naturally occuring anesthetics. Only through misuse and a bad reputation has it turned people seeking relief from pain into junkies.

Instead of sitting back and looking at people who you assume are just "looking for the next hit", perhaps you should look at the source of the problem.

I can't get out of bed in the morning without pain shooting from my heels, to my knees, to my hips to my lower back.

I was born like this, and 13 corrective surgeries later this is the result. Arthritis ridden and barely able to move at 22. Every day. I cannot stress the difference between the pain you feel and true chronic pain.

So before you try to tell me the evils of the medication I seek, and how doctors at pain management clinics are pushers, walk 100 feet in my shoes, because I barely can.

BEFORE ANYONE KNOCKS PAIN MEDICINE OR PAIN DOCTORS, TRY LIVING IN SUCH SEVERE PAIN THAT YOU CANNOT WALK, AND YOUR LIFE IS MISERABLE! DO NOT TALK ABOUT PAIN MEDS OR DOCTORS UNLESS YOU HURT SO BAD IT HURTS TO TALK! PAIN MEDICINE IS JUST LIKE MEDS FOR HEART PROBS, DIABETICS, YOU NAME IT! IT IS JUST THAT SOME IGNORANT PEOPLE VIEW IT AS A BAD DRUG, WHAT ABOUT YOUR HUSBAND OR SON THAT DRINKS THEMSELVES SILLY EVERY NIGHT, MY DEAR, ALCOHOL IS A DRUG, TAKE IT AWAY FROM THEM, AND SEE WHAT THEY DO?

i understand that some people have a lot of pain. i know people that do and have to take med for it. there should be some "exceptions" to the case. however, addicts with no real pain has caused this whole problem along with doctors. look, you guys made be mad for dr mann losing his lic, but if you knew all the story you may think differently. dr mann was killing people. he kill a relative and some others in this community. my relative was young and has young kids - now without their father. this guy was not addict to drugs. dr mann gave him some med to take with some other med cause he was sick and it killed him. the meds was NOT suppose to be taken together. dr mann done the same thing to some other people. i would rather people have to go out of town to get their pain med's than die from dr known for med errors that has killed people. i am sorry for those having problems getting the meds they need.

I totally agree with on the call of Dr. Mann being set up...Also all the doctors in Russellville and at the Miller Henery Clinics targeted Dr. Mann in a "witch hunt" because they are afraid of writing a script for aspirin. Now that Dr. Mann is gone his patients cannot find a Primary care doctor without being judged for being his patient. I have been turned away by 10 doctors just for being a patient of his. We need to also remember that the Miller Henery Clinic was also the cause of Dr. Valley''s office to close and move to Tennesee. He told me personally that the pressure of being a good doctor was too much in the little "bible thumping witch hunting town of Russellville"...Dr. Valley referred me to Dr. Mann then he closed his office...I pray that the people responsible for all of this have to either suffer or watch someone they love suffer just half the pain I suffer WITHOUT a doctor like Dr. Mann or Dr. Valley...But those good folks are like every other do goody WE are not as good as THEY are...THEY will get the meds and treatments THEY need without anyone but God knowing...These are the same folks that park their cars BEHIND the VFW, THE NORTH FORTY AND THE CASINO so no one knows they are there, get their friend to write their scrips.Then paint their self righteous smiles on and go to church and pray their sins away while letting everyone and anyone who suffers pain suffer that pain...The doctors of Russellville are weak and could care less about the people they care for. AND GOD HELP YOU IF YOU ARE A PATIENT OF DR. MANN or DR. VALLEY, because the good self righteous doctors of Russellville or the surrounding area WILL NOT HELP YOU!won't help you!
