The best suggestion I can make for anyone in our area is to contact one of the major hospitals, such as Evergreen, Harborview or Swedish and ask to speak to someone in their social work department.

The people that work in them here are excellent and if there is such a pain management specialist in the area, they'll be able to help you find them.

Learn more pain management details here.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?

I am also in the same situation as OP. You seem to think that you have the ability to help and that is very exciting to hear. If you know of a doctor who doesn't judge their patients I would love to hear from you. {edited for privacy}

Hi, I saw your offer to help someone, or give a suggestion. I live nearby and am under the same dilemma. I cannot find a pain management doctor to prescribe, even though I have documented MRI's, CT's, medical records. Have chronic pain condition that can never be cured. Please let me know if you know of any doctor in the area? Thank you very much.

This is incredibly sad and tragic in that people who have painful conditions can not receive the needed care and must live daily with extreme pain. Whats worse is having had that pain cared for for 9 years and Dr. gets sick and leaves his practice and patients hanging. In our political climate..all Dr's are frightened of the government and refuse to write opiate pain meds. Such is my case. Am still in shock over losing a great doctor with no one to turn to. Whats even more frightening are those dr's who insist on steroids IV's risking patients to a series of life threatening stroke..death. infection.. increased pain..heart attack..paralysis (FDA has just issued warning to such events) I dread cold turkey and I dread life lived again with unbearable pain. I don't have it in me.

I am posting this for the WA state area. There is the Seattle Pain Clinic that has offices in Seattle, Renton, Tacoma, and Olympia. They take medicare and medicaid.
That said..most pain clinics will no longer prescribe benzos. They expect that to be a decision for your primary health doctor. Periodically like any other state we have issues come up that affect pain patients. At this time it is methadone. It is not a drug that they want to prescribe. But this clinic is also pretty devoted to keeping you out of pain without forcing you to do things . Most of the time it all boils down to communication difficulities between your primary, the insurance co., and the clinic. It is so important to keep a copy for yourself of important parts of your medical files. If you start a new medication with a doctor just ask if you can have a copy of that day's conversation so you can keep it in your medication file. Just ask the nurse at the front desk to put it in your file when it is transcribed and you will get a copy of it at your next visit. Then when you move or loose a script or whatever you can provide instant copies to a new doctor. I try to be prepared for making sure a new script is actually approved by your insurance company before leaving the doctor's office with it. The medication authorization issue is so harsh now.Hope this helps someone out there.

I am on methadone and habe been for about 10 yrs but i have major anxiety attacks and have also been prescribed xanax for about 8 yrs. this is not a combo drs like to prescribe cuz there r some people that have bad reactions but since ive been doing it so long i know its safe for me. My methadone clinic wont count my drug panels as clean becuz even tho i have a script i refuse to sign a release so they can say embarrassing info to my primary who i believe will end up cutting me off my xanax so i need a dr that will understand and listen to me so when i sign the release and it wont ruin my xanax prescription and have to look again. I just dont have time to keep paying different drs with no insurance and being treated like a drug addict thats just dr shopping. I am in NJ and am also willing to travel even 2-3 hrs so i can keep myself stable. Please help. I dont need the methadone prescribed though that would be easier than the clinic daily, i just need a dr that wont be worried to give me my xanax on top of the methadone prescription.

I made the move and regret it. Unless I go to Canada I get no help here in WA state and I've traveled as far as 4hrs from my home. I now fly back to my home state to get my meds.
