USC offers a traditional approach to pain management. Recommended paths of treatment involve physical therapy and various opioids. Patients not responding to traditional treatment may be prescribed norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and other experimental drugs. Time with doctor Richeimer is limited to a few minutes. Visits are mainly handled by a changing cast of internists. USC will not entertain pain treatment with medical marijuana. Doctor is difficult to contact in emergencies.

I had to wait 5 months for an appointment with Dr. Richeimer. Meanwhile, I had to live with horrendous back and leg pain during that time. After my first visit with him, he ordered lots of tests, PT, OT and pain psych. My follow up appointment with him was going to be 90 days from when I first saw him (it was his first available) until I just got a letter in the mail that he will be out on Medical Leave from March 6, 2017 until May 2017! So my follow up will be with a dr I don't know.
