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.....

What dr are you talking about when you say "She" ? I'm at the point where money doesn't matter because I cannot work otherwise.

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.

Scarlettjoe, I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to respond but I live in my own private hell & it's very difficult & painful for me to sit at the computer. I've sort of given up on finding a pain mgmt. doctor...it seems such an impossible task. So, no, I haven't found another one. This part of the country is so bleak when it comes to good medical care. From all I've personally seen & all I've heard from others I don't know how any of these doctors got their medical licenses. The medical community here is a farce....what happened to compassion, ethics, and "do no harm"? If you've been lucky enough to find somebody, would you let me know? Thanx so much.

Andi, the pain mgmt. doctor I was referring to in Mountain Home was Chatman...Tilley wasn't even here then. Chatman (and his male nurse) treated me like the scum of the earth. Please refer to my original post where I briefly state my previous surgeries & the source of my pain. I am, and was then, wheelchair-bound, in excruciating pain (which I will always be in since I've been diagnosed by 3 doctors as having "intractable pain"); I cannot do the most basic activities of daily living & all of this is in records from multiple doctors in California which Chatman had. He never once examined me let alone checked vital signs. He accused me of being a drug addict, he screamed & yelled at me at the top of his lungs as did his nurse, once right outside the waiting room door. I was horrified! I saw Chatman for a year-and-a-half only because I didn't know where else to go. At every visit I was evaluated & the results were always clean. I am a quiet, introverted person, 65 yrs. old; confrontation & argumentation make me intensely uncomfortable but that's all Chatman wanted to do. In the beginning, I would simply ask him (beg him) for the meds I was taking in California which allowed me an awesome quality of life with virtually no pain. (For the previous 2-1/2 yrs. in California I had been living in an assisted care facility (nursing home) and I gave Chatman those records on my 1st visit which included all my daily meds, etc. Chatman glanced at my meds & said I had been seeing a "pill-pusher." I told him he was way off base. I had the nurses & doctors of the nursing home, my family physician, my orthopedic surgeon, my neurologist, and my pain mgmt. doctor, an awesome team that worked together for me and my best outcome. As usual, Chatman ignored me & called me an addict. He would never let me talk; he was mean, rude, condescending, unethical, and an outright liar (a whole other story). At every visit, I just sat there and cried. He finally referred me to Dr. Larson at White River Pain Mgmt. in Batesville for a morphine pump which I could never afford. Dr. Larson turned out to be an exact copy of Chatman. I still haven't found a real evidence-based, patient-oriented pain doc so I continue to be house-bound in agonizing pain.

If they find anything else in your sample that's not prescribed and you've signed a pain management agreement there is a great possibility that they will refuse to treat you
