Loretta and Rhonda,
I too am from the Nashville area. I graduated from Mt. Juliet High School and both my sister and her husband are drs. in Hendersonville so, I’m there quite often. I’m actually in Brentwood so; I’m on the other end of Nashville from you both. Loretta, you don’t have a pm dr at this point? Is that correct? The dr kicked you out? It sounds way too much like the average PM here in Tennessee. To find a “good” pm doctor is almost impossible. And Rhonda, do you have a pm dr? If so, is he/she good about dealing with your pain? I see a PM dr. in Antioch and it feels terrible going in there, but I am finding that getting a pm dr anywhere is very difficult! I am wondering if we are in a state that is very anti-pain management. I would love to hear about both of your relationships with pm and if either of you have heard of a good pm dr. here in Nashville or anywhere around.
I'm called Cat, but as there are few other Cat's on here, I put the number of cats I have and combined it to spell out Catz4
