  • No doctor is going to write him a prescription for meds without seeing him. And if they are willing to do that, then they should have their licenses taken away. Can you tell us more about the chronic pain he is experiencing? Has he had testing done to determine the cause? What medication is he currently taking?
  • I UNDERSTAND THAT HE CAN'T JUS GET RX WROTE OUT HE HAS HIS XRAY AN MRI REPORTS FROM DR HE SEEN IN PA. I WAS JUS TRYING TO FIND OUT IF ANYONE KNOWS OF ANY PAIN MAMAGEMENT CLINICS OR DRS IN THE NASHVILLE AREA THAT DO WRITE OUT RX...I CALLED QUITE A FEW DRS IN THAT AREA AN THEY ALL WANT 300.00 DOLLARS 4 FIRST VISIT AN 175.00 FOR THOSE APPTS AFTER, THAT IS ALOT OF MONEY TO BE SPENDING IF UR NOT SURE IF THE DR WILL WRITE A RX FOR HIM !!! SO I WAS TRYING TO SEE IF ANYONE KNEW OF A DR THAT DEFITNITLY WROTE OUT RX IF HE HAS PAPERWORK FROM ANOTHER DR THAT SHOWS HES IN PAIN AN WAS GETTING MEDS BEFORE HE MOVED TO TENN.SO IF ANYONE KNOWS OF ANY DRS IN THE BRENTWOOD..NASHVILLE AREA THAT WRITES RX TO PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM I WOULD APPRECIATE THE HELP BEFORE I PUT OUT THE 300.00 DOLLARS JUS FOR A VISIT. THANX TO ANYONE WHO KNOWS A DR THAT HE CAN SEE SO HE CAN GET BACK ON HIS MEDS WITHOUT HAVIN TO SPEND ALL KINDS OF MONEY GOING FROM DR TO DR TO GET BACK ON MEDS SO HE CAN B OUT OF PAIN AN GET BACK TO WORK!!!!THANX AGAIN KIM A MOM WHO NEEDS HELP FINDIN A DR 4 HER SON...
