You both have good temperaments otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Wink

Teddy, one thing I have noticed.
The small town or rural clinics seem to be a little more apt to take care of they’re patients needs while I believe the big busy city clinics are more likely to send a guy off to a pain specialist. This has been my experience anyway. My GP Doctor considers this his business. Some of the ones I have seen in town are the exact opposite.
Specialists, surgeons, they don't want to prescribe anything for pain after the first 30 days or so if they can help it. A good GP with some compassion won't leave you in misery.

The last surgery I had, I felt fortunate getting anaesthesia! To that guy it was about getting the job done, and getting paid with the least amount of liability.
Sometimes you will deal mostly with a PA, I actually prefer the physicians assistant where I go. He is more down to earth and uses a common sense approach to problems. I get things explained to me when the Phd wouldn’t say a word, to afraid to incriminate himself I think.
IMO lawsuits have probably done as much damage as over regulation!
Im sure you will find a good one in the MW.

Great info and wanted to say thanks for sharing! I'm trying to decide between a new PM doc and finding a caring primary care doc as well. I'm in a SMALL town, but the surrounding larger towns have docs that are NOT at all compassionate IMO.... It's tricky these days!! That's for sure!!
Love & Light,
