This is total BS. I lived in Knoxville when one of the Florida pain clinic owners moved to Knoxville & opened a pain clinic. The Knoxville Police along with the codes department ran this poor guy out of town. First they made him move because they said the building was not zoned for a medical office. That in it's self was splitting hairs & if it was any other business nothing would have been said about it. Then when he moved to a new location the Knoxville Police sat outside of his office for hours at a time. They harassed & wrote his patients tickets for anything they could. If nothing else they would write tickets for jaywalking. Knoxville should be ashamed of themselves as their actions where deplorable just because this was a pain clinic. Someday they may need a pain clinic & it would serve them right if they had to suffer.

As they absolutely should have!! Freakin druggies. Every time one of these piece of crap strip mall distribution points opens the dopers line up around the damn block and whine because they need all those pills and dont want too many questions asked. They are an abomination and the real medical community should be screaming at the top of their lungs about it.

One of these days you may end up with painful back problems. Then you will understand why people line up to get pain medication. Don't think it can't happen to you because it can. Why do you care if they line up for pain medication what's it to you? What constitutes the "real medical community" as you call it? Doctors that tell you to go home a take 2 Aleves for your chronic pain? Or better yet doctors that refuse to prescribe narcotic pain medication & justify it by quoting the governments latest propaganda that pain medications can actually increase pain? Luckily they are having little success selling the people on these this latest lie.
Rather you like it or not some people need oxycodone for pain & why should you care if they take 8 Oxy's a day? Can you honesty gauge how much pain another human being is in? Just wait your day will come may be it will be a herniated disk or some other chronic pain condition. Whatever it is I'm betting you will change your opinion & will be the first in line at one of these abominable pain clinics as you call them. Knoxville with all their so called bible belt morals ran that pain clinic out of town & they should be ashamed of themselves.Personally, I can think of nothing more immoral than shutting a pain clinic down.

Hi Kat I knew you would put your 2 cents worth in once I told you about this board. We miss you sweetie & everyone told me to tell ya hello. When you get tired of typing tonight call me. Don't try to do both at once cause you'll just get confused lol No wonder you left Nutsville as you call it. I get this imagine in my head of hillbillies with pitchforks & tractors running pain clinic operators out of town.hee hee I liked the anti drug effort they tried after 911. If you take opiates or heroin you're helping out the terrorist because the Taliban control the poppy fields in Afghanistan. I wonder how many patriotic Americans suffered in pain thinking they where helping to stop terrorism ?

The poppy and Afghanistan shit is crazy, but what isn't crazy is eliminating the pill mills that hide under the guise of "pain management". Damn right these strip mall dens out to be run out with any tool that can be found ... along with the sorry ass druggies that go there.

One of these days you may end up in a state pen for drug trafficking too. Bible belt morals has nothing to do with running dopers and junkies out of communities.

Nope, that was all my fault but then since it was over SEVEN years ago I have gone on with my life. My being in recovery has nothing to do with people needing pain management. But you will always be a troll and a spineless, uncaring jerk who thinks he knows everything. You've never done anything wrong have you AJ?? Yeah right...go tell that one to the Pope too.

The state can come into my clinic any time they want...it is a legit place. I don't have a line of people around the block. And they have to jump through MANY hoops to get in so we can make sure that they have legitimate pain issues. But then O'l AJ...you wouldn't care if you father was in pain...you'd let him suffer.

Have you ever entertained a thought that wasn't put in your head by the anti drug movement? Why are they sorry ass druggies just because they need pain medication? Don't be so narrow minded hun

$10.00 ho ? Not hardly hun my prices start at $800.00 an hour.
Sweetie you're just upset because you can't afford me. Think I remember you now. You're that guy that came to the Bunny Ranch last month in a AMC Pacer wanting to get laid for $20.00. That virtuous drug free lifestyle your so proud of is serving you quiet well I see. As for pill sites this is the only one I post on so as usual you're wrong.

$800 / hour huh? For that you would have to bring a pretty girl and throw in a $200 gift card.

How much credibility does a former nurse have? Especially a former nurse who got her license revoked for stealing drugs and doing nothing to rehabilitate herself? But hey, if she weren't on her spouting her mindless drivel then who would we have to make fun of?
