So much needless suffering… We talk to people every day who continue to struggle with legitimate chronic pain! Dealing with the constant pain is bad enough, but it gets worse… So many patients tell us that they are made to feel like drug seekers even before they are seen by the doctor! Finding a good doctor can seem like an impossible task to many, so frustration, depression, and that nagging relentless pain eventually lead some to searching for relief online. The online world, however, is no safe place! Counterfeit medications, rip offs, and scam artists are all waiting to take advantage of you! Every forum is filled with similar pleas for help and reports about the many scams and lost money, the list goes on…
