Drove an hr to see Dr Chao because my Dr retired when I got there I was told that my insurance would not pay for the visit for some reason and that I needed to pay $450 per visit to be a patient. I called my insurance and found out that I had met my out of pocket expenses for the year and they would pay 100% of the going rates for a pain specialist Dr Chao just wanted $450 more per visit than that amount. My last Dr billed my insurance every visit and every January we settled up for the prior year and it was never more than $250 for the year. Dr Chao is severely greedy and I'm sure making money faster than even she can spend it. I hope Karma bites her on the ass soon.

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.
