This is a "Pain Management Clinic" that makes a new patient pay "in advance" $350.00.

When you finally get an appointment date, your evaluation is deemed by a urine test, and a CNA who "interviews" you. If she decides, for any reason, not to accept you as a new patient, you are out $350.00. No refunds. In fact, you are told that if your insurance only pays say, $75, you are still going to owe them money, for the urine test alone is $200.00.

If you make an appointment and pay the $350.00, even if it's a week away, and you cancel, you CANNOT get a refund!!

This is a clinic that gets people hooked on opiates. They make you get a criminal report (after your first initial appt, IF you are accepted), and you also have to go to every pharmacy that you've used and get print outs of all of your prescriptions for the past few years.

They spot check their patients. If they randomly call you to come in for a urine test, and you can't make it, you are kicked out. Even if you are in the hospital. If they have had you on Oxycotin, or Seboxin, and they kick you out, you will then have to go to these methadone clinics, probably for the rest of your life, for once those opiates get into your bloodstream, if you suddenly stop taking them, you can have a heart attack.

This is also a clinic that a doctor is not always there. I looked it up in the phone book, and saw the doctors listed that was SUPPOSED to be there, yet I was interviewed and turned down by a CNA named Ted.

The appointment a week away that was scheduled, was also with a "Ted".

She is NOT a doctor!!!

This clinic has been busted once already for being open without a doctor on the premesis, and for prescribing pain pills and getting people hooked on them, then dropping them. Even the neighborhoood has been fighting to get them shut down and out of there for they prescribe so many pain medications, and most people go to the pharmacy in the store it sits behind. The neighbors complain about this for this particular pharmacy has to have more than enough of these pain meds available, and have been robbed two or three times, because the criminals, (or maybe past patients that got dumped), know this about the pharmacy and robs THEM.

If you talk to anybody that goes to a methadone clinic, they will more-than-likely tell you that they first got hooked by one of these pathetic, quote unquote "Pain Management" clinics.

 Do you understand why they check everything, it's because the addiction to pills is an epidemic. They need to do do this so no junkies come in, probably like you, and just want your pills and get high. They are preventing addiction and doing spot testing to see if you are using the drugs correctly. If you had a problem with this it's probably because you didn't want them to know your background and why is that. Hmmm, interesting, just saying.

Looking for a good pain clinic

AUTHOR: curiousone - (USA)

If this pain clinic is or was so bad then why did you choose this place?  Im interested in, as to what you expected! I am looking for a pain management clinic to go to. The one I now go to is hiring way to many rude nurses and other employees!  They have been told to be cold and unemotional to patients, to make sure it is all business!  I am not permitted to ask questions or request proof of their complaints to me!  They are starting to falsely accuse me of all sorts of things which has never happened in the 16 years I have been going there!  I'm looking for a clinic that will treat all my problems. I'm an elderly lady and have no idea of why my clinic has decided I don't need to be there! Maybe they are feeling that since I am so old that they no longer want to treat me,they no longer respect me,that's for sure plus they are making up lies that I have not passed my urine tests with drugs that I am highly allergic to!  so I want a good pain clinic that will treat me with some dignity! I just would like to know why you gave this clinic such a scathing review and called it a rip off when you knew what you were in for?
