I'm new to the California area, and I started seeing Dr. Stuart Silverman (not impressed by him at all). He immediately stopped all of my meds (brining my life to a total stand still...a painful one at that!). I need to find a pain managment specialist in the area that is willing to help me work on my syptoms. Anyone got any good ones? I'm looking preferably for a woman, who is very, very compassionate and had a good bedside manner. Any ideas would be great. Also, anyone have any feedback on Dr. Nirmala Hidalgo at the UCLA pain management center? Thank you in advance for any help!
