Re: help finding a pm doc in charlotte nc
hey. glad to hear you have a good doc in ashville, nc. i am about 45 min to and hour away and have had a hard time finding a good doc since i moved back from fl. first i started getting treatment at the VA and they werent willing to continue my oxycodone SR b/c they said morphine was just as good and much more cost affective. then i started seeing a doc (gen. prac.) in town who is willing to start me on a much lower dose of oc w/out any b/t meds. i am fine working w/ this but all of the sudden he is trying to send me to some of the same things i have already done. please dont get me wrong i am more than willing to try anything but one of the things he wants me to do now is go to charlotte to see some surgeon, who i am sure is great, but the guy wont even review my records to tell me what he possibly might be able to offer. charlotte is a long drive and i dont want to go all the way there just to have a nerve block, repeat surgery, something offered that i have already tried. i really hate to even get my hopes up for no reason. i have researched my particular condition and the treatments for it extensivly and if i believed for one second that this guy could help i would be all over it. noone at my current doctors office seems to understand why i wouldnt want to make an eight hour round trip, spend for gas, possibly a hotel room ect. ect. w/out having some reasurrence that he might really be able to help.
anyway if you could contact me w/ some info i would greatly appreciate it.
