Dr. Ockey really helped me manage my pain for nearly 10 years, until which time I was able to go off all pain meds. He has high expectations, and I wanted to please him because I felt he really cared about me as a person. Doctors have laws to follow, and there are very very few chances to make mistakes before, in order to keep their practice going, he will let you go. He's an excellent doctor with exceptional character!
So caring at first, until its too late to see someone new. They are obsessed with meeting quota by limiting meds to everyone. They make you feel like some kind of drug abuser for needing meds when your pain levels don't improve *for them* and you're forced to jump hoops every month to get help. My pain is not at all manageable. I wish I could give them my pain and watch how they dealt with it. They would definitely take more meds than they give me. Do yourself a favor & find a real clinic.
