Typical Sevier County witch hunt. They terrorized the employees and clients at Skyview Medical Center in Seymour until they closed em down. If you have an appointment there, better call. Their overseeing doc is behind bars, no pharmacies will fill for them because of it. For the scumbags that got pills and misused em, shot em up, got high or sold medication, you are nasty and the reason why the good people have a hard time with doctors when they have legitimate pain and a history of operations and diseases, etc. I hope you are proud. Doctor Sherrod was a heck of a nice guy. They busted him once before and had to admit they made a mistake. Now, new charges. No doubt to me, the charges are bogus because they didn't want any pain medicines around here. That makes little Walgreens nervous. That and the dirtballs that hang out and pick scabs, are 23 years old with needle marks, cruddy clothing and lack of bathing capability. Sevier County sheriffs terrorized this business until they found a way to shut their doors.

Nope, you are wrong and you are seeing this from a very narrow perspective. You are on the outside and not on the inside of the business. Non medical people should stay out of pain management because it becomes about money, not the patient. It about time they start arresting these medical directors. The medical directors need to start taking some responsibility and not just a pay check! This place was ran by a mother and daughter team. Two uneducated women who had enough money to create a cash cow. This should remind you of a few other clinics that were shut down not too long ago.

SMOKY MOUNTAIN URGENT CARE will give you druggies some pills anytime. just pay them cash and you're in and out with a script full of goodies! This is a PILL MILL DRUG CLINIC if there ever was one! One post says the SMUC is owned and operated by LECONTE HOSPITAL! I believe it! They both suck!

My wife has stage 3 arthritis in both knees. She has an acl torn in one. And she can't get pain medication so she can work. Not everyone contrary to most popular belief abuses or sells their medications. My wife is unemployed right now, and is training for a job she doesn't have to stand on her feet. Here is the problem I see with this. Those in real pain have to suffer, because those who choose to misuse medication. Every doctors office, family practice or whatever should have an abuse councilor there in office. And if the doctor feels the patient needs strong narcotic pain medications they should have to see the psychiatrist first. If the Psychiatrist see's the patient is not addicted to any medications or has an addictive personality. Then by all rights and means more pain medications need to be written. Their is people suffering out there, because doctors not trained in addiction is making prejudgmental decisions based on people's geographic location. Such as Sevier County. If you try to help one from hurting themselves, your hurting the innocent more is what I'm trying to say. Please look at both sides of the ball when choosing whether you prescribe pain medications or not. It's not right for you to play God and allow people to suffer.

you talked about the out of staters going to clinics and selling their medicine well i live in nashville and yes went to a pain clinic when other doctors only want to prescribe lortabs or vicitin stuff don't work some people have legitimate pain issues and if a clinic gives them something to control it then HELL yeah i am all for it but unfortunately these places never last long and you are in search again. maybe one day i will luck up and find a good place that helps me the same until then don't knock a person that has pain because until you walk in their shoes you have no idea what it is like. and until you have a medical license you don't know what kind of arthritis a person has maybe they word it different but it is still the same i guess you must be in perfect health lucky you but one day if you ever have failing health and need pain medicine i hope you never find anything that helps then maybe you will eat your words and join the rest of us legitimate pain people..

Addicts....I know exactly what you're talking about and it doesn't take a diploma with MD on it to realize what is going on in this county. People that are physically strong enough to make it to a pain clinic in Nashville, have no business getting any pain meds. Oxys are for CANCER,end of life care, not for young adults/kids/teens and vicodin is one of the lower narcotics, that does NOTHING for arthritis, period. Also, if you've got a migraine, no legitimate physician will give you vicodin for a migraine, period. It doesn't even work for migraines! Go sell your bill of goods somewhere else, to me this is all bs, plain and simple! If any doctor gave anyone meds, same dr. that caused death, he would be sued to the max. You people really are graveling, get real!

FALL DOWN A COUPLE OF FLIGHTS OF STAIRS and see if you still sing that song.
Another person can drive you anywhere. And the more pain you are in, the more desperate you're in to get relief.
I'm sorry for your children's' mistakes, but that's just it - mistakes. People are suffering here, taking their own lives, due to severe pain not being taken seriously.
If your next kid has severe pain and hangs himself to stop his suffering (to you and the commenter above), THEN who r u going to blame - the ROPE mfgrs?

SOOO, IF YOUR NEXT KID HANGS HIMSELF TO GET OUT OF THE SEVERE PAIN HE'S IN DUE TO A CAR ACCIDENT, ETC, WHO R U GOING TO BLAME - THE ROPE MANUFACTURERS??? I'm sorry for your loss, but you're barking up the wrong tree, in the wrong country, on the wrong planet!!!!
