Well just reading reviews of Dr. Richeimer. I have been a RN for 21 years and a chronic pain patient 10 years. My diagnosis took over a year but what was most interesting that once I was diagnosed that I soon learned not many doctors knew how to treat my condition, Crps and a ton of other pain conditions. So what I can provide is input as a patient and medical provider. I do go to a pain support group and all the comments about Dr. Richeimer are similar. Dr. R has been my MD for 6 yrs now. He has saved my life. He has never ever made me feel rushed and never made me feel dismissed. He is so incredibly kind, patient and listens. He has never ever made me feel like I'm being ridiculous. He has always gone above and beyond. He has reached out to me many times when I would never expect and if I reach out to him he always responds. Again I am a RN and know what to look out for with a MD. Dr. Richeimer is the absolute best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
