    VERY dissatisfied. I was referred 2 Dr. Melfi for pain management by TWO different Dr's. As she was treating me 4 a prior issue, I did not think it would be an issue. She REFUSED 2 see me for pain management, Nor would she offer up what it was I am to do now to bring my pain level down to a tolerable level. I was not looking for medications or drug. Just a little bit of hope that there is a chance I will be able to have some quality to my life. Will not be finishing treatment 4 prior issue.
