    I've relocated to Indianapolis, Indiana and hope someone can recommend a kind, empathetic internal medicine doctor. I have FM/CFS, OA, degenerative disc disease, depression, anxiety, etc. For pain I am on 20 mg. oxycodone 2 times per day since 2002, also approved for SSDI same year. I went to an internal med dr appointment (I found him through an Indianapolils physician referral service) who said I should not have amount of pain to warrant being prescribed oxycontin and totally discredited me, my previous pain management doc, rheumatologists and internal med. doc from the state where I lived until last month. I left in tears - I felt as if I'd gone back in time of pre-diagonosed FM/CFS and pre-approved social security.

    Any suggestions or names of primary care doctors is appreciated. Thank you.

    Let me know if you decide to see Dr. Guyer. Many people find him cost-prohibitive, but I think he's very good.

    If you do a search, you should find a pretty recent thread with an interview with him, too.

    Good luck!

    Best, Lisa

    I moved here and had a wonderful doctor in houston that i continued to use for years! he died last month and i found myself in a terrible position of running out of meds. I can tell you where not to go meridian health group---they have an inpatient suboxone racket going!! there are a couple of docs that know how to listen but it seems they are not accepting new patients---if you have insurance check the directory and start calling the offices and explain your problem and ask if they are willing to treat long term chronic pain patients with medication. good luck
