arkansas is the worse. i am forced to see dr tilley in mt. home and he is a disgrace! a pitiful excuse for a dr. he lies to his patients because he is a spineless coward, and tries to force his patients to take lidocaine injections which are very expensive and rarely work. he has done nothing at all to help me in any way in a year n a half now except decrease my pain meds by 75% and hes talking about 100 morphine units or the equivalent of now. hes a corporate yuppie that runs his clinic like an assembly line.

I know your question is about doctors, but this is advice on the medicine itself, if your insurance or you can afford name brand, do so. I have been on vicoprofen for 12 years now and have been from name brand to many generics. I've noticed slot of the generics are slot weaker. I finally found a pharmacist that would tell me the truth. Generics only have to be within 20% +- of the original formulas. I'm sorry, but minus 20% on someone's pain meds is quite a bit when you're in pain. Just IMHO a little unsolicited advice. Good luck with your treatment, hope yours gets better instead of like mine which got worse over the years especially after surgery.

I've been in chronic pain for 20 years and have largely been unsatisfied with my providers but for the past two years I have been seeing Little Rock Pain Management Clinic. Dr. Murphy is without a doubt the best doc I've ever had she is very compassionate and easy to tak with

IN CONSTANT PAIN: I don't know where u live, but I live in Mountain Home AR & saw Dr. Larson for 3 nightmarish years in Batesville. You're right...he's the worst, along with Dr. Chatman in Mtn. Home. They are both quacks... rude, condescending, know nothing about pain management, consider everyone drug addicts, lie, cheat (I was double-billed by Chatman on my 1st visit & then he also billed Medicare...of course I've turned him in for that along with outrageous verbal abuse & writing fraudulent RX's). They make their money on giving injections & if u don't go along it pisses them off. Every time I saw Larson he'd say "I can give u a shot for that." I'm looking for someone new (my psychiatrist has suggested a few) & I'll keep you all updated but don't hold ur breath. I've been looking for a decent pm doctor here for 4-1/2 yrs. This is one medieval state. I came to Arkansas from California where all my doctors were kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and worked as a team for my benefit. It was an awesome patient-centered, evidence-based partnership where my voice was always included & actually listened to. And u wonder why Arkansas is 48th in the nation when it comes to healthcare!!! Good luck to all...

John Larson is a quack who should lose his medical license. He may be a Dr on paper but he ain't a real one. I went to Shazia Siddique at that clinic for 3.5 years until she left & mover to Indiana.. She & I didn't always see eye to eye & it wasn't the greatest pain management I've ever had but I survived....After 6 months of Larson I left or my family Dr took over. About 8 months later his practice closed abd I've been on a rubber ball since.

I totally agree!!! I've been here for four yrs. & still haven't found a "real" pain doc, even tho I have all my records, my med lists, films & am wheelchair-chair bound. I have no life. The only time I leave the house is for a doctor appt. I sometimes wonder why I'm even alive and if I should even bother.....

James Hawk in Harrison used to run a pain clinic there in Harrison. Kinda strict but he weeds out "addicts" quick. I don't have his number anymore. I went to the one India guy in mtn home. Quite the jerk. If you find someone somewhere please let me know. It's just getting tougher all the time. I wish I had a button to push so they could feel exactly what I feel on any given day. Even a good day would be more than most these people could handle!

I responded back at the first of June about Dr Carl covey. I went to that clinic for about a year but the clinic changed. Dr. covey took n partners and u no longer saw a Dr just the nurse practitioner and fir a bit it was ok. She seemed to no me and my situation and I had no issues unroll the end on June when I had a major abdominal surgery. My first visit ti the pain management clinic was a nightmare. I had been prescribed post op pain meds and as soon as the nurse practitioner walked in the room she was cold rude and as if I had never seen her before. I was told that I broke the agreement I had signed by getting post op pain meds from my surgeon. I had told the pain clinic I was having surgery. The day I was having it and who the Dr was that was doing it. I didn't hide anything from them but they acted as if I had. I was spoken to like a child and felt like I had been scolded. They write me a refill but cut my dosage down by more than half and I was not going ti b able to have any pain meds for 2 weeks. All of this was less than 2 weeks after a major surgery. I was punished basically and was given an appt for 2 weeks away. I was tired of hurting and tired of being treated like I'm a crack addict. I decided on my own to try suboxone as a pain management alternative. I was on 100mcg fentanyl patches every 48 hours prior. I found a clinic in hot springs and the most wonderful Dr that listened to me and I now take bupenorphine. I am allergic to all natural opiates so I didn't have many options. I've been very pleased with the suboxone I no it's supposed to b used to help addiction bit it is a string opiate and it really helps with my pain and doesnt have the drugged up feeling side effects. So if u r miserable and can't seem to find a good Dr for pain meds really from one suffer to another try bupenorphine. Pain clinics don't prescribe it and most drs don't. Psychiatrist and some clinics will b where u have to go. They have to have a certain licence to write it. Most of them u have to pay cash up front. U can bill ur insurance after. My insurance isn't covering mine so I pay $220 a month to c the Dr but I won't go back to being treated like I have n the past or trying to live with the pain. Please just research the medicine and check it out. Its one of our only options and it's working for me. My Dr is Dr.Robinson and he is with Stockton medical group. They have an office in north little rock, hot springs, and Fayetteville. Their called Stockton med group. I no a lot of u will look at this and laugh but I hurt all the time and I was willing to do whatever I had to to get relief and not keep being so stressed about all the crap from the pain clinics. Its working for me. I hope it will help some of u.
