My fiance was busted doctor shopping in Oklahoma, now when I call to try to find him another doctor who will actually refer him to a pain management doctor no one will help I have contacted like 10 doctors and they all say nope. He needs some kind of relief, he has a back full of hardware and is on medicare does anyone know of a doctor who will give him a second chance to get some help for his daily pain??? Thank you so much

Have you tried an addiction specialist? Many of them treat pain as well as addiction and may be more educated as to why your fiance was Dr shopping in the first place i.e. was he shopping trying to find relief or does he have an addictive problem? This may be the best route for him to take at this time. The addiction specailist will be able to determine if he just needs adequate pain control to stop his going from Dr to Dr or if he truly has an issue with addiction. Good Luck to you both!
