Paraded like a herd of cattle............. 3/1/2007

I had heard these doctors were very good....... and on my first visit I saw a doctor. He was very thorough and I presented all my records from the last four years of pain management. I was on a muscle relaxer, narcotic pain reliever, and other medications. The doctor wrote a prescription for a new medication and also for the same ones I have been on for the four years of pain management. I was to see them once a month for my meds. I was supposed to have my pharmacy fax a request for refills which was the same time as my doctor visit......I never saw a doctor again, just a physicians assistant, even if I requested to see the doctor.......they would tell me I would have to wait for an opening which could be up to several months away........ The PA would not write a prescription, just told me to have the request faxed from the pharmacist. I had to sign a form for one pharmacy and not use any other one while being seen at this clinic. I went through this problem of not knowing if I would have enough medication to last for a month until my next office visit.....this happened each month and I was terrified of beginning to go through withdrawal as I had been on these meds. for a five years for chronic back pain after fusion surgery. I always felt as I was in a herd of people, just run through the door at the called time. Most of the time there was a crowd of people, and no where to sit. I never saw anyone at the appointment time. I had to wait at least thirty min. to an hour each time, sometimes even longer.....this was difficult since it was hard for me to stand for any length of time. I could not take being treated this way, so I found another pain management office which is a wonderful difference than Austin Pain Associates. I would not recommend to this clinic to anyone. It was terrible and I felt the office staff could care less about me as a real perso; to them I was just another number Please, please be very careful if you decide to go here. I read the first review and they were telling the truth about this pain clinic......... more
