I've heard all you gotta do is walk in there n tell 'em what you want. Pay your $$ n leave. I bet alot of drug dealers would like to have that setup.

don't give me that, the drugs they pass out there should never be given to anyone who is not "pre or post" operational.Just look at the so called "very good" Dr's cliental.He was susspended by the medical board last year for some reason. Couldn't pass out narcotics n moved to cape where he had to have an associate dole out the "medicine" for his "patients". I do understand that there are people out there that need these certain types of medications. Thats why we have chronic care pain centers not some dr. that is only good for a common cold passing out "highly addictive" narcotics to just evey tom dick and harry. Call it what you want Dr. Sugarbaker has a license to sell drugs. I would bet that nearly 90% of his med's are sold on the street.To both mine and your kids. people that go there have medicaid that pays for the visit, by the way which is every 2 weeks sounds like medicaid fraud to me and the medicine costs the $2 for the script. Now comes the real problem they sell their medicine on the street for up to $6@ pill. I just think there should be some kind of control or investigation on what is going on there.I also believe SEMO drug task force should open there eyes and check into this

Our tax dollars at work!Most people who go there are on Medicaid and are getting free drugs and they are drug-abusers or they are selling them.

This is my point exactly. Scott n MISS. co's want to cry about how bad this prescription drug problem is here in our counties but they keep letting this place stay in business. I'm telling you there needs to be something done to either shut this place down or make it into a legitamate chronic care pain management center. Where you have to have medical records proving your conditions of why you should need these highly addictive narcotics. Not just because "my back hurts" or "I have anxiety issues". I know for a fact that there are other medications out there on the "non-narcotic" scale that will treat you w/out narcotics. but these people that go there are just looking for a "high" or to resale their meds.This has just got to dealt with somehow or someway

they do keep records of the patients and why they need their meds. Not everyone is pill heads or dope sellers alot of them need the meds. I do agree not all of them but most. Yall all just like to run your mouth, the person that started this thread probably goes there and had to take a drug test last week and failed so they are pissed

This seems to be a real problem at this clinic. Although, I do not believe it is First Choice Healthcare any longer. In changing ownership, the name was changed as well. It is now Family First Medical Center. I feel "yeah right" has a good point. I work in the healthcare field as well as the legalities of healthcare. One will find that any clinic or healthcare provider has to deal with substance abusers. This includes the buying and selling of unauthorized controlled substance. A clinic is legally obligated to keep record of all medications and office visits as is a pharmacy. How is one to decipher whom to believe about one's pain? One may say that they hurt worse than any other, but how is one to know the truth? Healthcare providers work their hardest to fulfill their patients medical needs. We are not accurate to judge who may need pain management or who does not. For the record, I am not a patient nor do I take any controlled substance or any medication for that matter. I stated my career above. Until one is in the healthcare providers position it is best that one keeps opinions limited.

If the government would stop trying to make money on everything, a person should be able to go to the store and pick up pain medicine and only be limited to a certain quantity a month! That would solve the problem!
