To: Burnsurvivor – I have been to a few pain management facilities in my walk with chronic pain and have NEVER experienced the level of sheer incompetence or just a sheer lack of caring as I have with the office staff at Tulsa pain Management. They don't return calls, they lie or misrepresent wheither a doctor is in or available and act as if they are in charge of your treatment. ANY Dr. who relies on their office staff to sift through patients and make judgement wheither or not they are a drug seeker is a ground for malpractice in itself. office staff is in NO WAY qualified to make that judgement. As for a patien getting angry, what choice do they have after being given the run-around repeatedly? As you should be aware, uwe who are in constant pain 24/7 365 have a higher stress level than most and when you percieve that someone is putting your wellbeing at risk it does and should make you angry. If the Dr.'s at Tulsa Pain would take more of an active role and actually communicate with their patients and spend more than 7 minutes with them they would not have as many bad reviews as they do. I wouldn't recomend anyone go there. my case is WELL documented and I have been treated with complete disdain and it is the first time in my life I have had to endure a power trip by ofice personell
Cut The Doc Some Slack – I stumbled across this website quite by accident. I read the reviews. Now I would like to make some points. I worked as an Office Manager for two psychiatrists. They also prescibe narcotics. The staff hears a lot of "I've lost my script; someone stole my purse and my meds were in it; someone broke into my home and stole my meds; I accidently flushed them down the toilet"; you get the picture. Hence, this is one reason the staff might seem distant. Not to mention the abuse the staff receives from a patient "out of meds & needing them."
Now when this happens frequently to the same patient you have to wonder. Are they taking more than the prescribed dosage, are they sharing meds, are they selling on the street.?
Narcotics can be very dangerous and addictive.
The doctor is looking out for your health & safety.
If the doctor cuts you off your meds or dismisses you as a patient, there is usually a valid reason. Insurance would not be a reason to cut you off your meds. Even if the insurance terminates or maximum benefits have been met. The doctor will still prescribe, you just have to pay out of pocket.
The doctor may have a suspicion that the patient may be seeing more than one doctor for the prescribed medication. There is a website called "Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics that many doctors subscribe to and they can look up a patient name, date of birth and any other information needed. This gives them a list of the narcotics that is being prescribed, the pharmacy's and the doctors prescribing. If a doctor has a suspicion that a patient is abusing their meds, they just check the website and if you are doctor hopping & pharmacy hopping the doctor may dismiss you as a patient or stop prescribing since you are getting meds elsewhere.
Of course, if you speak with your doctor, admit that you have a problem, advise you are willing to seek psychiatirc treatment for your addiction, then the doctor may agree to keep you as a patient.
Remember the doctor is looking out for your safety & health.
WORST EVER – This is the WORST clinic in Tulsa. The staff is rude, uncaring. The other reviewers are right! You WILL get jerked off your meds for no reason at all, as did I. The nurses ARE rude and they treat people like they are bugs that need to be squashed. I feel sorry for anyone who goes to this clinic. I will be writing a HUGE complaint to the oklahoma Drs medical board.
Your negative reviews are not helping your situation – those of you that have such negative things to say on here about your treatment at the pain clinic are wasting your time. those who are being negative and not trying to resolve your issues in a professional manner are probably going to encounter these same problems in every clinic that you walk into. the staff at the pain management clinic have a very stressful job as it is and if you resort to anger or negativity it is only going to cause a red flag on your file and make it that much harder for the doctors to treat you. there are so many people who manipulate doctors today to get narcotic drugs that they have to rely partly on their staff to help them pick out the abusive users. i was severely burned 15 years ago while in the military and have been dealing with several different doctors and their offices ever since and i am yet to come across a doctor/doctors office that is not ready and willing to help me have a better quality of life. as far as pain mnagement providers. they have to walk a very thin line just keep their license and stay out of jail. if they just gave drugs to every patient that asked for them or through a fit when they didn't get them they would be drug dealers and not pain manangement doctors. i have been a patient at this office for 2 years and am very pleased. i myself had a slight communication problem with my doctors staff and was able to resolve it by simply explaning the problem at my next appointment. i have witnessed many patients yelling and screaming and making a huge issue out of something not so major numerous times in the past 15 years and it has never got them anywhere. that is not the only pain management clinic in tulsa if you are not happy with them simply go somewhere else, but i am sure they all operate along the same guidelines, they do not just pick on a patient to make their life miserable. again they have to be very strict because of dope seekers and it makes it that much harder for those of us who need our doctors to treat us without having to worry about us getting them in trouble for treating our pain and giving us the quality of life that we deserve. my advice to those of you who have a problem is to go somewhere else. i personaly go to Dr. Morris who is very sincere and good at what he does, but my PCP goes to Dr. Anthony and has nothing but great things to say about his treatment. i came across these reviews today while looking for the phone number and was amazed at some of the ridiculous things that some of you had to say. it makes me wonder about your integrity and honesty.
One of the best doctors I have encountered – My family owes Dr. Anthony a great debt for improving the quality of life for my husband. He didn't give up on us when other doctors in his field told us to live with the pain. He helped us obtain more treatment and ultimately has always been open to discussion about management of his pain. I am a legal professional and I highly recommend Dr. Anthony and his clinic. He is beyond competent in his field and truly cares. We have had over 20 procedures in his office with no bad results or complications. The nature of medicine will require that there will be a few bad outcomes. However, I am confident that Dr. Anthony minimizes those statistics and overcomes many bad outcomes by his superior competence. I highly recommend Dr. Anthony.
Cut off meds – cut off meds cold because workers comp canceled insurance or changed medication providers had been on meds for 15 years
I messed up – I have been going to doc Anthony and he is great I went to the ER and the ER doc was hateful and mean, so I left and called his office this was on a sunday he called me back not someone else I didn't know he was very comppasionate and carring. The only thing I don't like is that I feel when I call to tell his staff something like my med is making me puck that i'm not so sure it gets to him, I had an appmnt a few weeks back but i dnt get to see doc i seen I think her name was Shila I'm horrable with names she is vry sweet but i don't think she listen to me as well as I would like I was told to take less norco and more ibprophen so i did and i then started pucking up bld i went to my pcp and she did tons of test on me and said i was taking to much Ib I didn't relize i signed a contract and well the rest is left up to him but he is a very wounderful doc. And i too had to pay to get my meds filled but they let me go for awhile I think its fair if you go to your pcp if you don't pay you don't see!!! anyhow thats how mine is. I'm sure his staff has better things to do then get on here and write a review they prob don't even know this is here! I stumbled up on it looking for his address!
Terrible Staff – Dr. Anthony is an excellent, thorough and caring doctor. Unfortunately Dr.'s offices are really run by the staff and not the Dr. How do I know thi? I have been a pharmaceutical rep for many years in this area and I am a patient of Dr. Anthony's. I came to him because of his excellent reputation in the medical community. Unfortunately he has done a terrible job with his staff and given them entirely too much autonomy. When people know they have power over you and an ego (actually inferiority complex) MARTHA, not to name names, is the big decision maker. I have zero issues with the staff or the Dr. because I have a previous relationship as a rep but I have seen what happens behind closed doors and it is almost as if Martha/Monica and company (This does not include Dr. Anthony) enjoy being hostile towards the patients and this is very unfortunate and was not the way his office ran before becoming so large. He has done a poor job in delegating so much power to a person that is a true narcisist.
HELP ME STOP THESE PEOPLE FROM CAUSEING ANYOTHERS THE PAIN THEY HAVE CAUSED ME. – i am looking for others who have had very very bad treatment from this company and the doctors working under this medical association. i have been under their care for over 10 years and was completely taken off meds without reason other than i do not have insurance, which is the only reason i can figure out. i may be confined to a wheelchair due to thier treatment to me and the heartlessness of their nurses made me decide to fight this, i need as many people who have had bad experencies with PAIN MANAGEMENT OF TULSA. please contact me so that i can stop these people from doing anything else to others who are in my condition.. to say the least, i am scared and was just going end the pain myself but decided that it would be better to stop this from happening to someone else... so i am, you can notify me thur this sight by leaving your name and email address, i need as many people as i can get.. thanks for you time.. oh, DON'T GO HERE, UNLESS YOU WANT TO BECOME LEGALLY ADDICTED AND THEN BE REMOVED AS A PATENT IN 1 DAY AND DEAL WITH IT ON YOUR OWN WITH NO HELP AT ALL, EVEN AFTER 10 YEARS OF BEING ON THE STRONGEST MEDS THEY PRESCIBE. THE DOCTOR WON'T EVEN CALL TO LET YOU KNOW IT IS HIM TAKING YOU OFF THE MEDICATION., I BELIEVE WITHOUT QUESTION THAT IT WAS THE NURSE.. AND THAT THE DOCTORS MAY NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BUT THEY WORK UNDER THEM AND THE DOCTORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THEY DO AND SAY TO THE PATIENTS.. one of these docotors left the orginal association and either started this one or was able to join the group when his treatment for a well know coach came into question when he was drunk and caused a very bad accident.. it was almost immediately when the doctor left the old group and went with the other. CHECK OUT ALL DOCTORS BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR LIFE IN THIER HANDS.. I WILL FROM NOW ON... if i can make it thur this, i can't live in the pain i will have to go thur... it can take up to 3 years to detox on dermeral if you have medical issues.
Thankful for Dr. Anthony and Pain Management – I would not hesitate to say that Dr. Anthony and staff have done everything in their power to improve the quality of my husband's life after 2 back surgeries and complications. He listens to what is going on with my husband, is concerned about its effect on his overall health and on the family, and works with us to try every possible way to reduce the pain without resorting to stronger and stronger medications. I would and have recommend him to others and am so thankful he is there for us.
