: When you first go to see pain management docs, is it standard procedure for them to order a complete blood "tox screen"? Or do they just do this for people who "look the type" to be drug addicts (long-hair, biker-dude looking guy)?
: I understand why they asked hubby to sign "narcotics contract", but anyone else had the doc make snide remarks about "we need a blood test to check for abuse" (all that has been taken is what was prescribed by main doctor while we were waiting to see pain mgmt, but he seemed a little rude about it)?
that sounds like you found a real jerk for a pain manngement doctor. i think you should find another one who will lok at the mri's and not judge your hubby,because he has long hair.
