Dr. Ly is a good pain specialist I really like him. However, the wait time is insane! I waited over 2 1/2 hours to see him (with an appt). Also he wrote a prescription for my pain but when I took it to my regular pharmacy, they said they could not fill his opium prescriptions. I'm not sure why, maybe because of the type of medicine but I tried every chain and independent pharmacy within a 10 mile radius and no one would fill the prescription. I finally had to switch my pain management doctor.
