    My GP sent a referral to a pain mgmt clinic on Dec 16. I heard nothing so I called and left a message. No return call.

    I waited another week and called again. My insurance hadn't been paying them and they were having a meeting with them the next week and they would call me. They didn't.

    So, I waited another week after they were supposed to meet with my insurance and they said patients with my insurance were on hold and it would be 2-3 weeks.

    Today is 3 weeks. So, I called. Now they are saying "probably not until March".

    Every time I call it's something different. I really want to get in this place because they offer PT and Occupational Therapist (OT) and that's what I *need*.

    I'm sooooooo frustrated!!!

    I'm sorry to hear the delays and your frustration. I understand why you are at the end of your patience rope.

    We can have lengthy waits to get into specialists here, such as pain management, but it is about patient load only. We never deal with insurance coverage for visits or billing problems or anything like that. It would drive me mad!
