This review is for Dr. William Schooley. I have been a patient of his for approximately 4 years. I have a degenerative spinal problems with my back. Before Dr. Schooley implanted the pain pump, my life was a living hell. I was in bed probably 95 percent of my life, due to the excruciating pain I endured. I had no reasonable quality of life at that point. I was taking heavy oral doses of morpine, that kept me dopped up feeling all the time. I had been told that a gentleman whom I was aquainted with, has a wife who recently got a morphine pain pump which is implanted under her skin, which helped her come off most of the oral medications and at the same time, gave her reasonable pain relief. While attending a company picnic, I sought out this lady, and began talking with her about the pain management pump. She was so excited to share all the great news about how it has helped her regain control of her life once again. Talking with her caused me to once again feel like there was something out there that actually may work to help me get relief from this agonizing pain I was enduring day and night! I asked her for the name of her doctor, and she told me it was Doctor Schooley. The next day, I contacted his office to set up an appointment. he had to do prior testing to find out if this type of pain management would work for me. He would temporarily put in a cathetur, that would be attached to my spine. Through this arrangement liquid pain medication would be administered. By this preliminary test, we would know if this type of treatment would be successful for me. Indeed, it worked great ! I was so excited, just thinking I may once again, get relief from most of the agonizing pain, hopefully forever. Another appointment was scheduled to have the permanent pump implanted. If anyone is having any time of chronic pain that will not go away, I certainly reccomend for you to take a closer look at this type of permanent treatment, and perhaps it can give you relief too!
Pros: office is convienent to downtown area, lots of parking nearby, new office building
