First thing that Tonkin said to me on my second apt there was there is no recording of conversations it illegal in missouri, um just because I was checking my email while waiting for them to come in the room on my phone like WOW TO GO STRAIGHT TO THAT THOUGHT ummm ok what are you scared of someone getting you all being ignorant and disrespectful to the patients as they were to me and then when I finally decided to get a back bone smart back they decided they would not be seeing me no more, shows ya don't get back bone go there because that is only allowed by them and there staff. They can be all loud and smart with you but you finally do it back boom your gone. It all good.I am a psychologist they think I am some dummy but I'm smarter than they think. I just have back issues and for that to be the first thing he thought makes ya know there something up there. I am more professional then they think but at the same time I will only be nice for so long to someone in the bussiness setting that is being disrespectful to me. He tried to say I called there 15 times when I told.him.I would.him my phone to show him his staff was full of it. Oh no no cause he knew he was so full of it.Stand your ground no matter what.The desk clerks and Dr Fletcher, Levi, Justin are the only ones that are nice and don't have an attitude. All the other staff I dealt with we're so rude beyond rude or had the I do not wanna be here attitude. Really but do not stand up for yourself there. My husband first apt he still had a bunch of pain meds in him from our old doctor he told him if he don't bring n his script for what he had in his system he was to be arrested and that he would do 18 months for possession um whatever thst what they r there for well.supposedly to help people yet evryone I talk to and all reviews day he is a a***ole and don't help no one.They finally gave him suboxin he got so sick from it even the up while there at the office did they care ~~~nope~~~ slammed down their stethoscope and walked out of the room. My sin took the bag my husband threw up in out and put in the trash and called me to tell me about it all sad thst they treat ya like that. Doctor Tonkin acts like you NEED Him.and he acts like he is the king haha he is no king that for sure , and there are alot more pain clinics out there. He think and acts like he going to shut them down believe me he ain't shutting cox or mercy down they are much bigger than his lil clinic. He is not God though he thinks he is so I know where he not going too ~~heaven~~.

Pill mill. Dr Tonkin talks about how he destroys pill mills but that's all he would do. Would not listen to you, wouldn't schedule any procedures. Wouldn't listen to how the meds were or weren't working, . Nothing was helpful so he decided to do a DNA test to see what meds would work the best for me, then refused to try those meds even though the DNA test said to use those specific ones (DNA tests are not standard they seem to be hookey science so most Dr don't like them. But this was his huge thing and how this is the future and he swears by them. ) He didn't use the info at all. It's a $1600 test you have to fight your insurance to pay for. He was supposed to order a back brace for me. I was with him a year reminded him monthly and never received it. Also it's $700 an appt. Because every single time you will pee and it is a $400 urine test. Tests everything specifically and the amount so there is no room for error that I did like just not the price. They also had a same sex nurse watch you pee everytime, it was uncomfortable but I understood that too. For all the "safety" they do there once you get to the Dr it's pill mill time. You get 3 min. That's how booked they are therefore no time to discuss your condition. It's fine once you have something nailed down but when you are still new to a pain management experience it takes time to get things tweaked. It looks like a legitimate well thought out place but execution fails at the end. And yes people will try to sell their scripts in the parking lot and people will be looking to buy them.

When I begin to look for help with my opioid addiction here in springfield ,mo it seemed no one could direct me to a place for the help I really wanted or that I knew could help treatment programs didn't seem to be able to give me the full program that I wanted until elite pain management opened and they were exactly what I needed great doctors and staff been there since their opening and my quality of life was back in control I had my health and life.
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.
