Richardson James E MD
Dr.Richardson himself is excellent. After waiting hours after my scheduled appointment and I was finally in a room with the doctor, he treated me with respect and I felt very comfortable to talk about my need of help for recovery. He wrote me a prescription and I was out of there in less than 5 minutes . Now on the down side , the requirements are to get a referral from my counselor in order to see him and have a mandatory hour session once or twice a week which I guess is fine if you're not working ... But twice now , my guidance counselor, who I spoke to multiple times to confirm if he sent the referral in order to schedule an appointment and get a prescription for subs so it can help with cravings and prevent me from relapsing, after he had said he sent it and I was even in the room with him when he did, the RECEPTIONISTS of Dr.Richardson is the real problem. They either hate their jobs or they're lazy, but I'm not sure if they're just lazy to check for my referral or just straight up lie and don't want to check and take their sweet time, they just tell me they haven't received it yet. I call back multiple times and the woman on the phone gives me the same judgemental attitude and just eventually tells me at the end of the day they'll call me back the next day. Now I'm not sure if they just don't understand or have sympathy for somebody who is actually struggling to get their lives together and stay in recovery ... But waiting another day for some recovering addicts without having the chance of getting their prescription of subs and fighting to stay sober is like life or death. I know it may seem extreme but it's true. The receptionist isnt taking me seriously and doesn't understand that I NEED to get an appointment with Richardson as soon as possible because every minute that passes by without subs, I'm fighting with my addictive side and not making that phone call that can lead me on the verge to relapse and a deep hole that I once again may not ever get out of. So I'm almost at the end of my rope with this receptionist to the point where it has made me write my first review ever about her hoping it can change things in that office because another addict that's trying to get help and she pushes off to wait one more day may not even make it to call them back the next day and end up giving up on getting themselves help overall since taking that first step wasn't humiliating enough.

Interventional Spine and Pain Rehabilitation Center
Doctor Mike saved my life and my leg. I knew something was wrong and he was the only one that would listen. I was sent for "sciatica" and it took him less than a minute to say - you have a blood clot and you are getting admitted to the hospital. He literally had a phone in each ear at one point. The vascular surgeon said I was within hours of needed and amputation and the thank Dr mike for arguing and fighting with the hospital to get me admitted. The poor guy deals with a lot of crazy drug addicts who just want pills. andor want them to sell. He does not let them get away with that. My wife was even given a coffee while they worked out my admit. we love this guy

Dr. Stretanski always goes the extra mile for his patients. He's proactive in the fight against pain; insists you do your part~following recommendations, after you collaboratively agree on protocols of treatment. He's saved my life more than once, actually coming in to the hospital where I was, after calling to check on me & not feeling comfortable in what he heard, flew from Columbus to Upper Sandusky, preventing what could EASILY have become a "HOT MESS" due to another Doctor's lack of knowledge, common sense, & literally putting my life at risk.I'd highly recommend seeing him to anyone who endures with chronic pain.

Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
