    Hey Kara,

    First of all, any doctor that will pull pain meds and then proceed to yell at people (or let his nurse yell at people) qualifies as a sort of a sadist IMHO. :) (lol). Seriously, I'd get copies of my file. 2, in fact. One for the attorney and the other for my NEW doctor. Yep, I'd be getting another one pronto. Hang in there! Debra

    I'd say your doc is more than a little paranoid but knowing what crap they get from the Feds for dispensing pain meds, it takes a "real" doctor to have the belief and knowledge required to dispense them and have an assistant, do paperwork out the wazoo.

    I'd love to take on this county in dear old drybones south texas! This county is a law upto itself and yes, I have been at it since I decided to accept the present fact that I have a chronic ailment and will need pain meds ad infinitum short of a real treatment or cure! Hit a real nerve!

    Sorta sounds like your doc has no backbone.
    Sorta sounds like your atty is an "ambulance chaser".
    I'd run from both.

    Good luck. CactusLil'

    this is just a dumb situation i know my dr has a backbone because i heard him argue about my treatment with anthor dr well i was pregant i know drs have a hard time with the dea but anyone who reads my medcial records i have other condtions besides the fm that require pain meds.even though this lawyer is the abulance chaser type i would like the dr to know what hell he has put me threw and maybe this is the only way but im still not sure thats why i need options on this
