We recently moved. He did not look at my medical records nor did he request them from my former primary. He did glance at my medication list. He wrote my medication dosage wrong. Cut out all medication that's considered a controlled substance immediately. You can't just stop opiates. An appt with pain management Dr took months for the clinic to make. No help. Chronic pain is horrible to have. Next I was referred to a Dr that isn't taking his patients. Fibro Dr also isn't taking new patients.
A caring physician who listens, explains and will refer when necessary. Due to his popularity visits tend to be shorter than most so have your comments and questions ready when he walks through the door.
