My PM doctor retired and I had to find another doctor. I had my records sent to Dr.Lackey. after reviewing them and my latest MRI, they accepted me as a patient. I have now been with Coosa Pain Management for about a year and love the way everyone treats me, helps me with problems, and helps me with any questions I have. This office uses every tool available to make sure you are not a drug seeker, doctor shopper!!! They use the DEA prescription tools just like pharmacist do to make sure of what medicine you take. When I had my first visit, he knew exactly what I took, when I took it, and questioned me to make sure I was truthful. That impressed me and showed me they care about your health more than just prescribing pain medication!!! Dr. Lackey and his Assistant stay educated and up to date with all the laws for pain management! This is exactly what I was looking for and would recommend this office to anyone needing pain management. If they don't think your records mandate pain management, they will reject you. I signed a paper with rules for his office. If I break the rules, I expect him to dismiss me with no questions. I love this rule because it shows me he wants to help his patients as long as they want to help themselves!!!! I ride my bicycle when I'm able, I try to take care of myself, and when I see the doctors at Coosa Pain, we talk about my health. Yes, I have been drug tested, I have had blood work, I have had nerve test on my legs, and may have other things done to help me. They do all these things and more in this one office. I will stay here til he retires. He is younger than me so I hope he is with me til the end!!!
