Try Washington County Medical, just up from Mahoneys.

I've seen the adds for Washington County Medical on TV - has anyone had any experiance with them? Are they legit, or just pill pushers? I've been thinking about going there I have severe degenerative disc, scaitica and an annular tear. I need someone to manage me, but I don't want to get caught up in a bad pain clinic who just serves addicts.

I went over there. I have 4 discs that are shot. they did an xray the damage was clearly visible. All they wanted to to was give me those steroid shots. I think all they are really tryin to do is get as many ppl through there as possible and collect ins.$$$$. The injections is the only option they gave me. They didn't offer PT or Oral meds. or anything. When they saw I didn't/wasn't going to let them shoot me that crap into me it was pretty much "well hit the road JACK" !

Hate thear that - it's the same way I was treated at JC Clinic. You can do steroid epidural or you can suffer. I told the PA there I wasn't comfortable with having steroids injected into my spine. I was then told they do thousands a year and it is the bes and only treatment. I may be ready one day, but right now I'm not there.

I know what you mean. I hate needles anyway! And with all that meningitis crap a while back!!! I am NOT gonna chose "the final cure" just yet. So I have just been taking 5 to 6 200mg. OTC Motrin 3 to 4 times a day. But I worry about the liver issues. But hell what is anyone sposed to do? it's a BAD situation !!

Washington County Medical is owned by a chiropractor from Knoxville. That should tell you they are not going to prescribe anything but will just give you quack treatments designed to suck you and your insurance company dry.
