I just moved to Nashville and need a Dr. to continue writing my Oxycodone 30mg 4/day. I have medical records & MRI showing I actually need the medication. I can get a referral if needed. I appreciate ANY help. Thank you!

Hi Nashvillelady,

I may not have a PM doctor I can refer you to, but I can provide you with a couple links that may be of service to you in so far as finding pain management doctors within your general area...

Just input your city or zip code for narrowed results:
{link removed because site no longer exists}

wellness.com/find/pain%20management%20specialist

I'd consider calling up a number of them to see if any are accepting new patients, as some aren't, but most usually are.

I hope this info helps and wish you good luck on finding the right doctor! :)

I found him in Nashville, but it shows him as a primary care doc. Is he strictly primary care or pain? How strict is he about writing pain meds? What all should we take to the first appt to guarantee he will write the same amount we have been getting which is 120-30mg Oxycodone? Dr's have gotten so strict bout writing pain meds and we have got to find a Dr that we know will write his meds. Thank you so very very much.

Good luck! I cant find any who take Tenncare/United Healthcare. I recently have surgery twice! As a result one place booted me out! They had me on dilaudid 8mg 3/day along with the 30mg/2day morphine sulphate 30mg. I complained of lethargy and requested the 30mg/roxi i was on previously to no avail. Surgery was due to deep vein thrombosis from the lethargy. They also neglected to tell me that dilaudid had a rare side effect of muscle spasms, hence, the need for injections which can also cause a blood clot if you dont move around after getting one! They screw up and discharged me! I think i need a lawyer. But right now i need a pain doctor w/o injections. --Nashville area

Where did Dr. Opaleke move to? His Nashville office closed back in June/July and I would like to see him or a Dr. similar to him asap.

It doesn't matter since hardly no pharmacies around the Nashville area will fill the Oakpees scripts.

Thats same I heard, i even had an appt with them and they said, "good luck getting them filled." Hemel Mehta is good but try to avoid the nurse practitioner. I told them last month that the low dose of oxycontin kept me in withdrawal and she said, "gee wonder why he made it so low?" So she upped the mg and a week letter i got a discharge letter for overtaking my meds

Have you been able to find a decent pain management doctor? I just relocated to Nashville for work from Birmingham and am having to leave my pain management doctor there who I absolutely love. Like you I've had a spinal fusion but still suffer a lot of pain from it and pain from additional degenerative discs. I have been on 5-6 Lortab 10mg per day for years along with steroid and RF procedures which has been a very effective treatment plan.

I need help finding a pain management doctor. A good one. A doctor that cares about their patients and listens to them. A doctor that is not afraid to treat his patients as individuals, not as a group. I worked for HCA and Parkview Hospital when it was Parkview Hospital. I have worked for Dr. Frist, Dr. Huston, etc. in the Nashville area. I answered all their patient calls and have my medical terminology and coding certification from HCA. I say that so I will be understood when I say this: I have been in pain management going on 5 years. My primary doctor sent me because I was eating Tylenol and Ibuprofen like it was candy 6, 7, to 8 times a day for the pain in my legs. It is arthritis. All my family has had it for generations. My sisters, brother, mother, all of us. It has now spread to my neck, spine, ankles, feet, and beginning in my hands. I play classical piano and have my own cleaning business. My uncle lives with us and has stage 4 bone cancer. My husband is disabled (a veteran from Vietnam) and I have a 13 year old son. My 19 year old has tumors in her feet. I HAVE TO WORK. But I cannot find a pain management doctor to help me. I have been on Methadone 10mg. 2, 3xdaily, for apprx. 7 years. I do not feel high from it. I do not have to increase my medication. I can work every day with a clear head and I feel as close to normal as possible with rheumatoid arthritis as I can. But I cannot find a doctor to continue prescribing my medicine for me. My formal pain mgmt. wanted to bring me way down, and I can barely operate on this dosage. Or every doctor wants to put me on Morphine. MORPHINE. Last week Dr. Miller at Pain Management Group said he would not prescribe methadone to me because he believes it is too easy to overdose on. I have looked at the statistics, and 3x more people DO overdose on morphine than methadone every year. State and country wide. I need help finding a doctor that will treat and help me. I can barely work and my family is going down slowly. We can hardly pay the bills because I cannot work. Not to mention the pain and now going back to taking Tylenol and ibuprofen like it was candy again. Spreading out my last few pain pills to try and get through every day life for my family as preparing dinner, washing clothes, cleaning the house, etc. Can someone please help me? PLEASE. Sincerely, slt in Tn.

Have you found any help yet? I am female 57 and have been going to a great place for 6 years. They are also taking new patients. I'd like to get to chat with you though if it's ok. I don't want to post my email because I would get a barrage of email.

That's a good idea and I have another pretty long list that has a lot of Pain Management Doctors and Clinics in fact there's actually info on there that I was going to share. I really don't just want to share it in the open forum for legitimate reasons. I've seen some posts on this forum that sort of don't look like they are legitimate reasons for wanting to get pain meds. If I felt someone was trying to get for any other reason that what they were intended for it wouldn't make me happy. I know how hard it is to get help for actual health reasons and also how I've been made to feel over the past 20 years trying to get that help. I know that just talking to someone for a couple of minutes over the internet I'm not going to know for sure either but just posting my information out here and people going where I am going it could mess it up for people that are sincere and actually need the help, not wanting to cash in.

Here is the list that I had but I notice that the date is back a ways. I know some of them are still in business though and the one I have been seeing for over 6 years is also on there, here is the list: health.state.tn.us/downloads/Certified_Pain_Management_Clinics.pdf

They're very good, I have never actually seen the Doctor but my Nurse Practitioner is excellent. Very kind, understanding and helpful. When I first started going I had a difficult time finding the right pharmacy to fill my medications but now since I've been going to the place that I found a while back I rarely have a problem getting my medicines filled except sometimes the price (I have to pay cash for everything) It is also pretty close to the Clinic as well. Yes, they do take new patients where I go, you have to have a recent MRI and have your most recent pharmacy fax your most recent list of prescriptions. I am not quite sure but I do think that I had to have my Family Physician fax my records as well. You have to call to get their fax number to the clinic get everything to them (except office visit-that must be made either with credit card or debit card of money order at the time of your first visit) then you wait for them to call you with an appointment date. They are prompt though, if you don't hear from them in a week or so, call them back and they really good about checking into see what the hold up is.

Hey k-dog. Thanks for all the help. I'm pretty sure I know & was considering changing to the Dr. You were referring to. Just answer if its 1of these 2 places. I'm going protect theirs n your annonimity by using abbre/initial. Is either of these H.H.&W. well that's an acronym for the name of the office the head Nurse practioner's initials are C.S. that's the 1st, now the second all I know is one of the Nurse Practioners initials are D.F. & I can jus abbreviate this Aff. Is in the name. If either one makes since to you or maybe they both will & if so let me know if either 1's this wonderful Dr you speak of. BTW I'm battling RA, SLE, Lupus amongst several other things like Scoliosis. So, I will put any information to great use. Sincerely struggling & searching
