I have an appointment to this clinic from my PCP.

My appt. is with Dr. Moore. I have mri and ct scans showing the following. I have hemangioma tumor on my spine, narrowing of the spinal canal, spurring on vertebrae, Cortical Atrophy,DDD, and broke I my neck and had surgery on my right leg in 1996 from injuries in a MVA accident. I have severe peripheral nueropathy which I take Gabapentin for and my PCP gives me Ultram for other pain, which is barely helping me. So my PCP referred me to this Pain Clinic. Since 1996 I have been totally disabled.

Can anyone tell me what to expect at this clinic under Dr. Moore's care?

They could not tell me at the clinic what the first visit was going to cost me, and only said that I would have to wait and see what Medicare covered.

I went last year by referral to Dr. Gutti in KY, and he ordered Epi shots to my back. That cost me $275.00 for the first visit and a 4.5 hour round trip drive for the shots and they only helped some in my back.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I go to this pain center and they have really helped me. I see Dr. Aguirre. Just make sure if they put you on pain meds that you are very careful and take them exactly like prescribed. If you are short even one pill, you will be kicked out.

Well, thanks for telling me that Medicare has a specialist copay.

The copay is calculated by what the doctor does, in addition to the office visit, so it can vary greatly.

That is why I asked in the first place, what do they usually do when seeing this practice the first time, without knowing that, I have no way of knowing what the 20% copay would be. I cannot predict what they will do, but people who have been there could tell me what they did when they "first" went there so I could make a rough estimate of what I would owe the second visit.

Like order new MRI's, C-Scans, X-Rays, Blood work, physical therapy, initial evaluation cost there (varies widely among specialist), etc..

My pcp referred me to Dr. Aguirre specifically but when I got my appt. it was another Dr. who does not specialize in my type of pain. How can you change Dr. without causing trouble or getting kicked out? I like this Dr. but he just stares at his computer and then blows me off sometimes. I don't think he is really listening to me.

No you want to remain on methadone. Methadone use should be tapered off with a result of no use. Jumping from Doctor to Doctor to remain on methadone is just supporting another drug habit.

Not near a harmful as drinking to escape your problems. For some folks the problems of life are still there when youve tapered off the meds. Thats just silly. The stress of this crap world were living in have created many of our drug related issues today.
