Hello nurses!

I am a native Las Vegan (?) and now live in Texas. I have a brother still in Vegas who needs a great pain management doc. I need your local knowledge!

He is not looking for someone just handing out narcs because it's easy. We want someone who is using different modalities, does interventional low-invasive procedures, stays up to date, board certified, etc...

BASICALLY...someone awesome you'd send your mom to.

Any names you've heard around, or even been treated by? (It's a back issue, so I know some nurse has :) Anyone you can ask? I've been out of the area for 12 years so I don't have "juice" like I used to in Las Vegas. I'm trying from Texas, but I really could use your point of view.

I told him it's time to build a strong team. A good pain doc is a start. I told him he/she might not fix everything, but there are many procedures, therapies, and newer medication combinations to try.

He is double insured, both PPOs, and is financially comfortable so I doubt that's a problem.

So....PLEASE help if you can. Including DON'T GO to this doc info. feel free to IM if you prefer.

He's pretty desperate. Thanks for helping.
