Hello Amanda,

This is Dr Ritu Goel, your medical advisor for today.

I will try to help you out. Please visit the following link and search for an orthopedist doctor in the states mentioned. Click on your state of choice and you will get a list of doctors. You can contact them, since they are orthopedists, they would be prescribing oxycontin.

Thanks

Do you know a particular Doctor. These ones refuse to prescribe this medication. I may have to go to California where they help people with comic pain
Expert:  JACUSTOMER-jukovyew- replied 1 year ago.

No, unfortunately, I don't know of a particular doctor. I will opt out of the question.

Thanks

Hello,

I'm sorry, but no health expert will know of a specific doctor who prescribes OxyContin (or any other specific brand/type of medication) since every doctor will determine what needs to be prescribed for any patient after examining them and their records. Just about every doctor can and will prescribe OxyContin if that is what they believe is best for that particular patient.

You are most likely to be helped by a pain management provider rather than any other specialty. These are usually anesthesiologists who have further advanced training in pain management.

Illinois Pain Institute is the largest pain management group in Illinois. They have offices in Elgin, in addition to Barrington, Elmhurst, Lake Barrington, McHenry, Itasca, Libertyville, and Huntley. Here is the contact information for the Elgin Office:

Summit Green Medical Center*****br />Elgin, IL###-##-####/p>

Tel:(###) ###-####/p>


I would suggest you give them a call to schedule an appointment. Calling to ask if they prescribe OxyContin will almost assuredly lead to a disappointing answer, just as it will with any medical practice.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Best regards,

Schuyler
