Why can't the family phyician do the pain management? I went to a pain management clinic and was shocked by the meat assembly line attitude. They didn't take time to listen to me & answer my question. The scrips were written up before I was seen. I was in the exam room less than 5 mins. and no seeing an actual phyician. They would get upset with me when I tried to ask questions as they would speed out the door to another patient. I ask my family dr. to handle my pain problem and explained why I wanted her to manage my problems. She does handle everything now.All my records are with her,I was treated with respect and my records would show I wasn't abusing or selling my pills.The one thing I do is hide my pills so they don't grow legs and walk off. The patient must be active in his/her health management as much as possible.
