what's the bad it's all been good for my family the only bad I can think of is you have to take a drug test if you don't pass that would be bad.

There you go again. Try to lose the sarcasm and it won't appear that you're being a butth*le.

The only one being a butthead is you. She simply said she likes the doctor, and disputed what you heard. If you didn't want the opinion of people who go to him, why did you ask? Seems you were hoping to hear something bad, not something good.

Dr DeVoe has options for people with chronic pain issues who don't want to be addicted to strong pain killers. He uses a nurse practitioner (NP) to see some/most follow up patients. The NP has pretty wide latitude when it comes to the meds she can write an Rx for. Some of those meds can be worse for you than others.
If the treatment program they set out for you isn't working, it will be up to you to say something and work out an alternative with Dr DeVoe, or find another doctor who can help you.

The Dr OMC had in his place before Dr DeVoe was a total mean freak! He slammed my head into the table then pulled my hair! I was scared and crying and trying to get out of the room and he stood infront of the door with this evil grin and wouldn't move. I was scared to death. Plus he was a Saudi quack that you couldn't understand
Whaaat

Did you not turn him in? & I failed a drug test there for marijuana & they didn't care because I informed that until I'm prescribed something for pain, that WORKS, I'll continue to self medicate. They agreed.

What if the medicine they give you doesn't work and you run out when they do a pill count? I went there and called 2 weeks before and said that they meds weren't helping and they called me in for a pill count and I don't know if they are gonna give me crap because I ran out.

Hes pretty good. The NP gets hateful if you don't go along or agree with what she says. And to the other poster what do you mean what they gave you didn't work and then they wanted to do a pill count but you ran out? Makes no sense

Appreciate it! What are his policies on pain contracts? I saw a gentleman about say that they didn't treat his pain and he ran out of his meds. Anything of that? I am not a drug seeker. I just want to control my pain addequitly.

I called them a couple weeks ago and told them I was in severe pain they made me an appointment and cancelled it the next day because she was out of the office, I told then that the meds they gave me weren't working and I would likely run out before my refill and they called me in a few days later and ran a drug test and a pill count. I was thrown. She TOLD me to call if I had any problems and that's what I did. Why thr drug test and pill count?
