Dr. Hartsell you are a liar & a a coward , for you to give me one treatment plan & then send another to the pharmacy and then make it not a big deal when I call you about it is heartless and unsympathetic. I did express to you that I woul like to be released slowly due the medication I was on, but you only response was " isn't she interested in going to another facility, even though I had expressed to you that I was worried about my blood pressure becoming an issue due to the pain, and then after me callin daily for a week feeling as if am a junky, you tell me that I can change out my OxyContin by coming by the office to get the correct dosage on a Thursday( like I had them with me), so I want to thank you for ignoring me and throwing me off to your assistant instead of fixing your mess up and because of you I am miserable and don't have allot of trust in doctors at this point.

Ive had lower back pain and nerve pain that at times radiated all the way down my leg. It got to the point that i had to retire after 32 years in the coal mines this year at the age of 53 on disability. Dr Chhabra and John Hartselle P.A. have always tried any way possible to get me the most relief they can. All the staff are excellent, professional and kind and go out of their way to help you from the front desk all the way back.If I called them tomorrow they would get me in as fast as they could to get me the help I need. I feel they have always tried their best and even went above and beyond to help me. I wouldnt go anywhere else.Victor Argo Bessemer,Al.

I have chronic migraines as well as fibromyalgia. I don't know what I would do without their care. All the doctors are wonderful very caring and actually listen to me and care about your pain. I have felt that other doctors feel I am just a drug attic trying to get some meds. That's not true I have a lot of pain but with the medication and the procedures . I can live and in less pain. And do almost everything everyone else does every day and takes for granted. They are a fantastic Group of caring people that I thank God for.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Russell, he actually listened to me and what my issues where, and he offered every service I needed in one location!!! from top notch care to dry needling my muscle tissue!!!! as an athlete he really took the time to work on my actual structure to prevent further issues that could arise later in my lifting career , Dr. Russell being an avid bodybuilder knows the human body and biomechanics for a fast and effective program... trust me this is a one stop shop for all your needs!!!!

Southside Pain Specialists
I've been going to Southside Pain since Dr. Goyne moved her practice there. I was not happy till my last visit when I was seen by Dr. Kendrick. My son and I were both happy. We like this Dr very much. He offered an alternative treatment for me and said if we agreed to ask through the Patient Portal. The problem is I can't get into the Portal and I've tried calling but get cut off before I can leave a message. I'm very interested in this other procedure. I wish they would call me back.

Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
