And thank you!
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.
OK, but that is not a factor that is necessary to research a practice near you.

Gotcha!

Sounds good.

Please be patient. When you post a response, the system forces me to also reply and distracts me from the research.

Thank you for your patience.
The usual specialist that would be considered for prescription of opiates for chronic back problems is a Pain Management specialist.
I could not find a Pain Management specialist in Manassas. The closest practice with a physician board certified in Pain Management is Dr. Rashid Khan, in Woodbridge, VA,
There also are Dr. Stephanie Clop, in Centreville, VA, and Dr. Theresa Carlini, in Lorton, VA, who are Physiatrists, and these doctors also are able to manage chronic back pain.
