i work in a pain clinic in southwest missouri at a small hospital; we are a complete pain management clinic, doing both procedures and long term narcotic management. i have work in pain management for over 10 years and now work with one anesthesiologist who is great.
at one time he was in a group with eight partners at a big hospital and as staff we had to know their preferences, which could be confusing when you could have up to three different providers in a week. :uhoh21: here in the town i work at there are three hospital based clinics and multiple pcp's who do some form of steroid therapy. it is amazing how much difference there is in clinics, some will not give sedation with procedures, post procedure pain meds or do long term medical management. since we do it all, the practice is full and takes very few new patients, which is sad because we have to turn down so many referrals
, (we are a small facility and my doc can only see so many people in a day). hopefully that helps a little, if there is something more specific you would like to know just let me know and i will try and help you.
