I do not know of a pain management doc in this area that I can recommend from experience; however, I can recommend using AmeriPlan (discount health plans) until you are able to get insurance. There are pain management physicians in the AmeriPlan network and you would be able to get major discounts on your prescriptions also. Parents Magazine (May 08) listed AmeriPlan as one of the top 3 ways to save money on medical expenses. The Dental plan is only $15/mo for an individual (only $20 for entire household), which provides discounts on vision, prescription and chiropractic care also. The medical plans are only $30 to $60/mo. Check them out at www.DNShealth.net I can answer any questions you may have. ~ N.
