Excerpts from posts:
I can only say many pain patients here in Florida are using the methadone clinic for PM until they get a regular Dr to help.
yes, I am on Medicaid, I’m on SSI. I have found that all these clinics that have commercials, ads in the paper and stuff, seem to be willing to write the first few scripts, do all these injections that don’t work, and then after about 3 months, say there is nothing else they can do to help. i think some of these clinics do nothing but get some pts. hooked on the pills, and after a few months, just move on to another group of people. This office is always full, they even have chairs in the hallway lined up in order of who is next for their injections. Its just get em in, move em out, get some more. Repeat.
Indiana has become as bad as Tennessee and Kentucky are being described. I was left “high and dry” March 27. My doc’s office was raided in February…. Two hours before my appointment to have my meds refilled I received a call stating my appointment had to be canceled and that I would need to find a new doctor. I live in a city of approximately 70,000 people. I called every single doctor who has a practice here. I was told either they were not taking new patients or when I was asked who my previous doc was I got an immediate NO. Thankfully the nurses from the office were able to get me referred to a PM doc a week later. Going there was an immediate wake up call. All my meds were either taken away or the doses were cut drastically. I was told I needed to see a psychiatrist and get a primary care doc. She also told me to “deal with it” and that once I get through the withdrawal my hair will look better, my skin will look better and I will look better.
