You can google "find a doctor" and go to one of the listed websites and type in the doctor specialty like pain management or anethesiologist and your zip code and get a list of doctors. I'm sure there are many in the Louisville area. You'll have to then call them to find out if they take medicaid/medicare.
I know it is a pain in the you know what finding a doctor, but just gotta do what we gotta do.
I do hope you get some answers to your pain problems soon.

Some of those pain sites I mentioned have sections where you can look up pain practices in your area. You mentioned you had Medicaid-have you talked to your Case Manager or Case Worker? They can point you in the right direction of who to go to that takes Medicare/Medicaid. If you dont know who your case worker is, call the customer care number on the back of the card and tell them you need to get in touch with the Case Manager/Case worker assigned to your case. Every Medicaid eligible person should have someone assigned to them. They may not have contacted you yet but you should have one or they can assign you one. They are a really good resource for finding you a Dr and will save you a lot of legwork trying to find someone who takes your insurance. They are a good resource for finding community resources, healthcare providers of all types and just good resources for educational information! You should take advantage of that resource! Good Luck!

You might try:
Pain Management Kentucky
4402 Churchman Ave.
They have another office in Bardstown
I believe they have a couple other offices also and I'm fairly certain they take Medicare/Medicade. You will need a referral from your primary care doctor. I use the office on Churchman Ave. Feel free to ask questions if I can help you further.
