HI, As others stated, many "pain management" clinics have arisen, all with various capabilities and credentials. Any reputable clinic will be staffed primarily with MD's who are anesthesiologists who have studied a sub-specialty of Pain management. If you are insured, contact your insurance and ask who they have listed under pain management. Ask you PCP for a refferal if needed. (Not all plans require a referral). Be an informed consumer, ask questions i.e. "what is your area of specialty or interest, check board of medicine standing in your state. This is public info. Any citings by the board or lawsuits pending or litigated will be listed there. Good luck, and hope you find the help you need
