    Have you looked at the purple tabs above and searched for drs there? Goood resource for us!

    Also, if you change your post title (see edit under your username) to include the area, you'll get a lot more responses.

    Happy hunting and good luck!

    Thank you for your suggestions---I did edit with location.
    I checked purple tab out but no Dr names. Went to support group in area but Dr there did not take insurance.
    Thanks again!!

    yES i WOULD LIKE the name of your pain Mgt Dr. I actually live in Belmont. I am allergic to most all pain meds---and only take Ultram, Celebrex and injections. My Dr in Vegas is great and I've been going out to see him once a month but really need to find someon closer. I met Dr Lapp and liked him alot but not do-able as I need to use my insurance. Thank you for your reply.

    Dr Glenn McCain is good. But he doesn't prescribe narcotics. If you arent already taking narcs you would really like him!

    Glenn McCain is a good doc. He works at Presbyterian Rehabilitation Center in Charlotte. They also have a WONDERFUL Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program that is wonderul. I have fibro and went through the program and feel it has help me very much. My insurance covered it.

    Good Luck!
