Looking for pain management clinic in Northern Va/ Md, WV

Hi I've been a lurker here for some time and this is my first post. I have had Juvenile Diabetes for 42 years and have severe nueropathy plus failed L5 surgery and sciatica.My current pain doc has had me on Percocet 10/325 1-2 tabs every 6 hrs, plus Morphine sulphate 30 mg 2x day. My Dr mysteriously went on vacation and never returned. The new PA I saw in his place last week suddenly cut me back to one Percocet per day and kept the morphine the same. I knew better than to complain so I just accepted this quietly and left. My wife however called the new PA and complained loudly, albiet without my knowledge, but it was enough to get me the ax with my pain clinic of 5 years. I am now on a desperate search for a new pain management clinic that will keep up my Rxs which have been controlling my pain very well. I live in Northern Va and I have no idea where to turn! Does anyone know of a good clinic in or around the DC metro area? Va Md WV?

    a very large outfit in the area. it goes by a few names,**edited to remove names of specific clinics**. One of these messed up on me and have an assembly line mentality. I live in the area and also am looking for one that is reputable. So far I have not found any.
    One thing is a constant, they have to get your records and then decide if they will accept your case. There are also ones in this area that do not have licenses to prescribe opiods and do not tell you so they prescribe basicaly sugar pills, epileptic meds, and mild arthritus meds

    I did hear in the last few days that there may be some very good ones in the Winchester VA area.

  • Northern VA has multiple pain management and spine centers. Some of the best centers in the country are in Fairfax County. I don't go to one of them, but I know people who have and been pleased. I go to a center in Warrenton VA. If you search spine and pain centers for Warrenton VA, you will find them.

    As far as if the new doctor did the right thing, I am not one to judge something like that. I am sure that he is not stupid and had good reasons for his decision. However, I also believe he owes you an explanation as to why he made the change. If you were happy with the center, you could try calling them back and apologizing. Humility goes a long way in restoring relationships. If your new doctor was not communicating with you and explaining his recommended treatment plan for you, maybe it is time for a change. You should not have difficulty finding another good center in NVA. There are many.

  • for finding a new doctor is your insurance website. You can search for providers by city, state or specialty.
    If you are searching for a pain management doctor within a certain mile limitation of your home city, you can usually set a distance from your zip code and they will give you a listing of all of the physicians in that area for you to contact.
