Trying to manage pain can be frustrating. Our patients tell us they are trying one doctor referral after another in their search for a way to control their pain. In fact, a recent study found that one in every four chronic pain sufferers change doctors at least three times searching for relief. Because most pain clinics offer just one medical specialty, they are obligated to recommend that specialty even when it may not be your best option. When your pain returns, you are left on your own to find the next doctor. This frustrating, time-consuming and expensive process to managing your pain can leave you feeling defeated and worn out, unsure of where to go next.
