Discussions that mention coumadin

Pain Management board

Hey guys/girls;:wave:

I was just wondering if any of you had been to, or heard any stories about the Tampa Pain Clinic ,in Tampa, Florida? I have an appointment on wednesday, if we can get my insurance to cover it. other wise they charge $250 for the first visit then $100 per month after that. I am trying to figure out if my insurance will not pay (it is out of network) and I have to try and pay that is it worth it. The last PM i went to here was horrible, I have had 2 serious sets of blood clots, they say I am lucky to be alive:angel: , and have to be on coumadin the rest of my life, no ifs ands or buts about it. so I go see this PM when i first moved here. and he basically told me i was stupid, that i was going to die from the meds, and that I could stop taking my coumadin. Yes he did. he said that I could stop my coumadin.:mad: I have never felt so disrespected in my life. So, now I have found this new place which is about an hour away but I don't know alot about them. they have a website that i have been looking on but thats not actual stories from real people.

any help would be greatly appreciated, even if its another place to go or something else to try. I am will to go to any surrounding state. But not much farther north than TN which is where i am from,. SO please help me get my life back. right now I am traveling to TN about every 6-8 weeks to see my doctors and get refills on my pain meds.

thanks everyone.
