Contact the local hospital there and ask for a referral. They will be happy to do that for you. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing, OK?

Good luck!!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

go to Rate a dr website and type in Utah , then what type of Dr. you are looking  for , it should give you a list . then look at their rating to see who is the best.
Syringomyelia T4-T10

The best changes often start as a single, simple thought. Think big, and discover the ways to make your dreams real.

Make sure the doctor accepts your insurance plan. I have to make those same
calls tomorrow. Good luck, Griffin.

Dr Matsamura, The Pain Clinic, is excellent. He's on Redwood Rd at about 6300 South.

He wouldn't be primary care, though. Pain Management Specialist.

And he does the full range of pain management techniques as far as I can tell.

I've gotten opioid pills, patches, 3 different nerve blocks and was talking about one where he inserts a wire (implant) for pain relief. From the look of things, he has every type of gizmo, and the clinic does pain management only if I understood them correctly.
