Welcome to our Healing Well Chronic Pain Forum, You know Illinois is a pretty big state, so we need a bit more information as to the area you are needing the doctor from. I am in east central Illinois and they have some very good pain management doctors here. It would also help you if your previous pain management doctor would recommend someone in your area, that your now in and make sure he transfers all your records. It would also be of help if your old PM doctor would contact your new doctor and explain your situation and what treatment you have had and what you will continuely need to have done!
Anyway there are allot of good people here on this forum and I am sure if you give us the area, that you need the pm doctor, that somebody is bound to come along and be able to help you. I wish you well and hope that your stay in Illinois will be a pleasant one.
Good Luck to you.....White Beard
