How do you find a doctor that won't pre-judge a recovering addict as someone who is just looking for pills?
She has constant, chronic pain, and wants help with pain management. She has never asked for narcotics, and doesn't want them. She is my hero in continually overcoming her addiction to pain pills. But she is continually typecast by doctors as someone who is just looking for pills, and they don't even want to talk with her. Not all of her doctors, but two in the past month have refused to treat her without even an exam or talking about her problems. How can we find a doctor and "prescreen" them for being accepting and understanding of someone's past, and not blackball them for past actions?
