Busy week, I interviewd a bunch of PM docs. It was worth the running around I hope. The first doc will do the meds and the second doc does interventional work. He want to do another epidural but he says its nothing like the one I had before that took 3 min and one neele in the back. He puts you out and sends a catheter up through the spine to all impingements. He also does SCS and such. And both docs know each other and actually recommended this approach but didnt know I was interviewing each of them. SO im scheduled to see the pain med Dr next thursday and I called to schedule the epi. Im hopeful.


  • be very thankful that you have lots of choices. In the area that I am in there are 3 PM docs to choose from. Good luck and keep us posted with your outcome.
  • It is fantastic that you have some input in the decision making process and that make you feel that you are specifically help yourself rather than being reliant on others. The rapport with doctors is vitally important that we feel that trust and PM specifically have invaluable experience of dealing with pain patients and the specific needs that they have.

    Take care and good luck John.
  • I have the same type of thing going except my PM Dr. does it all. He used to have a partner because he couldn't possibly cover the office and do the procedures at the same time. His partners seem to move on and leave him to do it all by himself. He cuts down the number of hours he's in the office writing scipts and spends more time doing procedures. He now has a P.A. that covers the office for him and he writes the scripts.
