Pain management pharmacological options.

Hello, my name is John.

I am looking for guidance towards a resource to find a pain management facility in Ohio that offers pharmacological therapy. My PCP has approved a referral to see a pain management specialist however all the facilities that I have contacted do not offer pharmacological treatment.

I understand the concern they have and why they do not offer it, however I am unable to do physical therapy, surgery, or weekly injections because of lack of time. I am a busy person and until I can free up my schedule for surgury or physical therapy I would like to find a center that can provide short term pharmacological management of my symptoms.

Is there websites or a list of doctors that are in my area that offer these services? My insurance website does not tell me what they offer. Will I forced to call every doctor on my insurance providers list and ask them personally if they offer this service.

Thank for reading this. I am not asking for specific Doctors, just a resource where I can look at a list of centers who provide this as a service. I'm sorry if this is against the rules to ask, I am just having trouble finding a facility that offers pharmacological management along with the other options. All the ones I have called do not offer medication options.

  • I live in Dayton and I drive to Erlanger, KY (just over the line from Cincinnati) to see my pain management doctor. I tried many doctors in Dayton and they were not willing to provide adequate medication for whatever reason. It's 3 hours round trip, but to me worth it. If you can't find a doctor in Ohio consider looking over the line. My doctor sees me every 3 months and will send my prescriptions by Fed-Ex or certified mail in-between office visits.
