Hey all I am in Orlando now and need to find a new PM doc. I just moved from Georgia.   I am on oxycontin and percocet and have been for about a year.  Will it be hard to find a doc who will continue my current medication plan?  How do I go about this?  ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: DOES ANYONE LIVE IN ORLANDO THAT CAN LET ME KNOW OF A GOOD I MEAN A GREAT PM DOC.  I would love to find a doc that is nice, compassionate and one that is not afraid to prescribe the meds i am currently on.  My old doc was incredible and i just want to find one like him.  I take my meds as prescribed.  I am a good patient.  I also would like to find a Physiatrist if possible.  So,  IF ANY OF YOU KNOW THE NAMES OF ANY REALLY GOOD PM DOCS IN THE ORLANDO AREA PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  IF YOU DONT WANT TO GIVE ME THEIR NAME HERE I WILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE YOU MY EMAIL.

Shaw - you should probably call your old PM doctor and ask for a copy of your records - so that your new pain doctor can see what you went through to get to the point that you are at. Just to save yourself from running the rampart on testing and such leading up to the medication. You also need to contact your insurance company and find out if you need to have a referral to a pain doctor. There is a site, I think it's or something similar that you might want to try. You can look up reviews on doctors in a particular area.

I can't help you find a doctor but I wish you the best in your search!
