Just a little update on my background for those who do not know. I left my pain doctor due to the financial issues of paying facility fee along with doctors fee which became too expensive. I saw my new pain doctor Monday. I love this woman.
She is a doctor who is genuine when it comes to caring for her patients. Not a doctor out for the money so to speak. She actually listened to me and mapped out a plan of action in treatment. Unlike my other pain doctor when he was no longer able to give injections he would pass me back to the surgeon and only controlled my pain at a minimal level at the least. I was with my old pain doctor for 6 years and now see that was a big mistake. I could of saved myself years of uncontrolled pain. Not only did she tell me no more injections that I have had more then anyone should have she is also doing a complete work up so to speak....blood test, cat scan and wants to know why my spine has so many issues.
She thinks there may be an underlying cause that has not been diagnosed. I am so used to doctors not listening to me that I almost wanted to cry when I left her office. So to all those that feel like they are not getting good healthcare dont give up there are good docs out there, you just have to find them.
