Hello from JustAnswer.

I am sorry that no expert has yet responded, but it is because it is virtually impossible to know which doctors would be willing to prescribe this amount of opioids in any specific clinical situation until an assessment has been done. No doctor will make any statement that could be construed as being willing to continue whatever opioid regimen was previously prescribed, as they would run the risk of losing their license or their controlled substance registration.

A doctor that practices in Knoxville may have a better impression of the prescribing practices of local doctors, but it would be impossible for an expert on this site to be able to say which doctor would be willing to do so.

I can tell you that you are correct that many doctors are hesitant to automatically prescribe opioids at this dose, and the national guidelines for the chronic use of opioids is to try to get off opioids whenever possibel or at least get to a lower dose. It is also true that the likelihood that any doctor would be willing to prescribe opioids at this dose would be directly related to better documentation of previous efforts to get off or lower the dose of the opioids, not just documentation of the underlying conditions causing the chronic pain.

I can also tell you of some doctors that are higher rated, but that is certainly not a guarantee that they would continue the same medicines and doses. Pain Management Doctors in Knoxville that are highly rated include Dr. Bruce Fry, phone number of(###) ###-####and Dr. Timothy Bunker, phone number of(###) ###-####

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
