I'm going to a new pain clinic as the current one I go to turned out to be a needle-pushing pain in the a$$ clinic. I was being pushed around by the white-coats. It seemed like the only reason they were interested in my pain is because its located near to were I keep my wallet, in my back pocket.
I have my first consult with the PM Doc wed 4/3/06 @ 8:30am. His office just called and interigated me about my medications, who perscribes, when they perscribed, and if they are willing to continue perscribing! They asked me about the pharmicies I use and thier numbers. I was nervous and had to retrace my answers to make sure I didn't miss anything, I think I forgot to mention my Lyrica
The lady on the phone made sure to tell me that if the doctor decides to take over my med treatment plan it may take up to a month before he actually does so because of the paperwork involved
So does this sound like the norm for a PM clinic? Like I said, the one I have been going to only does injections, they said they are "an interventional" pain clinic only. This is why I was referred to the new clinic by my GP. I hope it goes well, that call made me nervous.
