I have been a patient here for about 6 months.Yes, I have to agree w/ the other "Reviewers" that the Staff at the "Front Desk/Reception" are indeed somewhat rude, harried, and not very friendly; at all.The physician I was assigned could not be more professional, understanding, compassionate. The "Nurses" that upon intake go about gathering your "Vitals," (Weight, etc.) are less than "Professional," & quite un-friendly.The entire/overall "Atmosphere" there at C.I.P.M. is one of everyone being in a hurry, and for the most part this makes me as a patient feel more like a "Number." For those of us unfortunates that require "Pain Mgt.," this is all very unfortunate.We suffer many indignities solely by virtue of the types of medications that we need in order to simply cope w/ life on a day to day to day basis.The general "Treatment" afforded us at "C.I.P.M." makes life even MORE unbearable.I have to wonder how many Chronic Pain Patients have simply had enough, "Given up," & decided that they would rather not be living?My hope & prayer is that someone in Upper-Management from "C.I.P.M." Stein Drive, Chattanooga, Tennessee will READ some of these factual, honest "Reviews" & set about trying to improve things.Thank you.

I have been seeing Todd and his nurse Cynthia for 2 years now and I plan on seeing them for many years to come. Both of them are wonderful, caring, friendly, easy to talk to, understanding and compassionate. I had been to other doctors over the last few years with pain that just kept getting worse and even after xrays and MRIs no one really had any answers and the answers they did have might as well have been in another language because they only left confused and ready to give up. After my first visit wit Todd I knew more about what was going on and what course of treatment to take and had never been happier. he spends time telling me and showing me what is going on and why and what we can try to make it better. So far things are going great and even my quality of life as changed tremendously!

This was my first time going to pain management and I was clueless and nervous on pretty much everything. But from the time I walked in until the time I walked out, they treated me with up most respect! I am so pleased with my doctor (Dr.Smalley) the they scheduled me with. He explained everything to my understanding and made me feel like he was concerned of my situation. I will definitely be going back and am happy I found such a great doctor.

I have seen doctor Todd for a good while as well. He is a very good doctor and he does care about everyone. He is worth the drive to see even if you live a long ways away. Very good doctor and I miss his nurse he had Cyntheia. She was great but isn't with him any more. But thank you to Doctor Todd for caring.

I have been seeing Dr. Stanford and his wonderful nurse for 1 1/2 years. I rarely have to wait, I feel that Dr. Stanford is focused on making sure that every base is covered, ever option is explored. He spends a good amount of time with me, and he and his hurse make me feel as though I'm his only patient.

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.
