My experience with Dr. Tavel and Pain Specialists of Charleston

Okay.  So where do I start?

I started seeing a Pain Specialist, when my doctor felt that he couldn’t be responsible for my pain management.  After an MRI, One of the PA’s at Pain Specialists of Charleston read the report and freaked out, briefly. Then she immediately prescribed opioid prescriptions for me.  It was like a light went on and they finally realized “oh this must hurt” really?

So, then I was faced with the whole SC State Controlled informed consent paperwork. I chose one doctor and one pharmacy.  Along with this, I was introduced with monthly urinalysis.

Before I go any further, I want you to know that my monthly urinalysis, is done through this doctor’s office, and billed through them, not through the lab, directly.  This bill is $1150/month.  Per month!!!

Because you only see the doctor for a procedure, and his waiting room is always packed wall-to-wall with patients, I felt like a cattle call to see a PA each month, required to get my monthly prescriptions.

I left the cattle call for a personalized pain doctor and encouraged all I knew from this office to the new doctor as well.

I am in fake collection with Pain Specialists of Charleston, for PEE IN A CUP! It gets no more literal than that.
