Re: looking for pain doctor in oakland san francisco

If you are covered by insurance, you might want to call your insurer and ask for recommendations. You can also call hospitals in your area and ask for referral to a pain doctor. It has been my experience (and that of others with whom I have spoken over the years) that pain clinics associated with major teaching hospitals seem to offer a lot of treatment options, and that can be very helpful for people with intractable pain. I wish you well.
