Address is now 10321 Kingston Pike Knoxville Tn 37932 – Bearden Healhcare Associates is a State of Tennessee Certified Pain Clinic. BHA has a staff of 2 MD's, 5 NP's/PA's, 2 Doctors of Chhiropractic and a Physical Therapist. The clinic requires background checks, pharmacy records, previous treatment records and drug screens. Their first visit is very thorough and will take 3-4 hours. Additional tests onsite include xrays and nerve studies. They refer to specialists frequently for injections and surgical consults.
My thoughts – I have been going there for quite some time. I have been treated very well. The checks they do are for the there own protection as well as yours. I know the first 2 blogs here have some knowledge, but not much. Xanax only comes in .25 .50 1.0 and 2 miligrams. The amount of meds you are talking abount in blog one are a stupip amount. I hope that was the list for the 7 years at the clinic. That much what kill 500 people in one month. They give you 8 hours to show up for pill counts. That is more than enough time. If you explained you were in the hospital and had your Dr call they would have worked with you. You both are simply drug addicts upset because you were cut off for not following the rules. These Drs have to run a tight ship because of people abusing the system. People who go there who have never ending pain should not have to suffer. My mother died a slow and painful death from cancer because of Drs who did not properly treat the pain. You are just mad because you can't access the meds anymore. Dr Mcneal is one of the best Drs I have ever seen, The eval I went through was over 4 hours of intence reviews of my history. Blame the Pharmacy not the clinic.
Licensed drug dealer – My Dad was a patient there and they kicked him out because somebody else picked up his prescription at the pharmacy. He filed a police report and they caught the person who did it. They still kicked him out which was a good thing because they were killing him with all the medicine they presribed him heres a list 360 oxycontin 80mg, 180 oxycontin 60mg, 360 hydrocodone 10mg, 240 xanax 10 mg and neurontin. And they did this for 7 years. The thing that bothers me is that he was never offered treatment to ween him off this is very dangerous. I only wished they would have done this sooner because now we (his family) are dealing with a 76 year old addict. I hope nobody else has to deal with this and they close this doctors office down and take Dr. Franks license before he kills somebody if he hasn't already!!!
Ultimate in RipOff – This is how it goes. When you call to make an appt., you are told that $350 needs to be pre-payed. When you ask what all you GET for this amount of money, you are told it's for some testing and a DOCTOR'S reviews.
The only testing that is done is a urine test. No x-rays, no MRI's..nothing..
then you see the supposed "DOCTOR" and she winds up being only a nurse practioner who decides if you are excepted as a patient or not. If she denys you, then
you've just lost $350 and are told (if you have insurance that pays say...$75...that you are still going to owe MORE for the urine test itself cost more than that.
Now..if you call and make an appointment, and decide to cancel it..even a WEEK ahead of time, you still don't get your money back.
Patients that I sat next too during this 'visit' told me some horror stories...that they call you in for "spot checks" and if you don't come..EVEN IF YOU ARE IN THE HOSPITAL they throw you out.
I was also told that once these people 'have you'..they own you. You have to provide a criminal list from the sheriff's office, and have to go to any pharmacy that you've ever been to, and get print outs of all of the prescriptions that you've ever had filled there.
I have turned them in to my insurance company. They've already been busted once.
I was also told that they get you hooked on Oxycotin and Seboxin.
Then if you get kicked out for any reason, you'll be forced to go to the methadone clinics which are $100 a WEEK and they also spot check you like you are a prisoner.
Well, you ARE a prisoner..your brain is then inprisioned by opiates, that if you go without, you could suffer a heart attack or brain damage or worse.
