I was impressed with care. My back and neck pain is the best it has been in the past 10 years. Your injections really helped. I am so glad that I had you insert the spinal cord stimulator. Much thanks and appropriation , I am so much more active! Manny Dr. Chavin is highly recommended!
My son and I were happy with visit and care. – I am a granny and have severe low back pain and am on Medicare. I was going to a Johnson City Pain Center and they stopped my insurance and wanted me to pay $190.00 cash each visit.
I had been referred to Dr. Chavin at Morristown Pain Consultants in Morristown by another patient. Even though the drive from Johnson City is over one hour I am glad I went to him and he takes my Medicare!
The last pain center I went to was run by a nurse practitioner and even though I went there for eight months before they stopped taking my medicare, I never saw a doctor.
Dr. Chavin spent a good deal of time with me. I was afraid to have a shot in my back because of my age (72). Dr. Chavin was thorough with me and did all sorts of testing. He explained to my grandson and me what was wrong. I had trust in him and you know what, the epidural injection worked great! I walk better, sleep better, I'm in less pain and I'm on less medications and my life is better. Thank you so much!!
I have recommended you to friends of mine
Thank you for the help with my neck and back pain! – My back and neck have been hurting for over 20 years and I have been around the block in terms of doctors. I live in morristown and have been to two other pain docs and was not impressed. I originally went to Dan Martin, PA and all he did was get me on high dose Roxicodone. He then sent me to Dr. Mohamed the neurologist and all he did was switch me over to methadone. He would not listen to me or answer my questions even when I would tell him that I was having side effects from the medications. He spent very little time and showed even less interest in actually helping me. I then went to Dr. Harris at Heatlhstar where Dr. Harris did injections. Again very little time was spent and after the three injections he stated that he nothing else to over and stated he dos not do long term pain management - go figure. I then went to Dr. Chavin and he and his staff did a complete workup on me - the most thorough in last 15 years! Dr. Chavin found ount that my thyroid was low and now on treatment my depression is better as is my energy level. Dr. Chavin ordered a Dexa bone density test and found out that I had osteoporosis and now I am on treatment for this. In terms of back pain, Dr. offered me spinal cord stimulation and after a successful trial I now have it implanted in my back and it has been a godsend for me. My life is so much better for having gone to Dr. Chavin - Thanks.
Excellent care with Dr. Chavin at Morristown Pain Consultant – I was very impressed with Morristown Pain Consultants after having severe back pain for many years.
Dr. Michael Chavin was very detailed in his work. I had a full workup and felt comfortable from the start. A lot of time was spent on the initial and subsequent visits.
Dr. Chavin's workup found that I had osteoporosis and hep c which was not found out by my primary doctor.
The injections were very helpful and I appreciate the fact that I am on lower doses of pain medications.
I have recommended you to family and friends. I am very glad my friend told me about you Dr. Chavin. Thanks to Craig and the rest of the staff!
My back pain is so much better! – I have had back pain for at least 8 years. I have been to pain clinics in Johnson City, Knoxville and Morristown and I have found Dr. Michael Chavin to be the most thorough of them all.
Dr. Chavin took a lot of time with me and even my husband was surprised at much time was spent. The complete workup that you did was more than my PCP had done and because of the workup you diagnosed Hep C and low thyroid condition. I am feeling much better now that I am on appropriate medications. The injections were quite helpful and the spinal cord stimulator has dramatically improved the quality of my life. Even though I am on Tenncare you treated me right!
I have recommended you to my friends, thank you.
Top Doc in Morristown for Pain! – I wish to thank this Doc for the excellent job he did on me.
Thank you for not discharging me when I overused my narcotics. You understood that my pain is mind bending!
Both I and my wife appreciate the implanted pain pump my medtronics. This pump has been a miracle for me
The pump has allowed me to have excellent pain relief with essentially no oral medications. I appreciate your attention to detail and all the time spent on me.
I am a new man.
I have recommended you to several people and would recommend you to anyone who has severe pain and has been to other docs without relief. Again muchos gracious!
great relief and thank you for listening to me! – I read the last entry on 12-5-10 and could not disagree more!. I have worked in the health care field as a nurse assistant and have worked with many pain patients. There is a terrible problem with narcotic drug abuse in east Tennessee and the problem is getting progressively worse.
I have been a patient of Dr. Chavin's for over three years and have had excellent care by Dr. Chavin and his staff. Dr. Chavin has had done injections on my several times. I undergo a series of Cervical and Lumbar injections about once per year.
At first I was hesitant, but I am now a firm believer in them. When I get a series of three of them over about six weeks, I get about 8 or 9 months of excellent relief . And by a year, I am requesting them again because of how much they help.
I have talked with Dr. Chavin about this and he explained to me that if the first series provided good pain relief than he and the patient can discuss this again in 6 to 8 months. If they don't provide adequate relief than they never need to be done again and the patient can still remain in the clinic.
Dr. Chavin explained that because of the very severe problem with drug abuse including diversion (selling the drugs) and addiction, that if a new patient has pathology that could benefit from an injection then Dr. Chavin expects the patient to be willing to undergo these injections with goal of reducing or eliminating the need for narcotic medications, increasing range of motion, increasing activity of daily living and decreasing pain levels.
In other words, many doctors can prescribe pain medications but few have the expertise that Dr. Chavin has in doing injections. Dr. Chavin does injections under live x-ray for accuracy and told me he has done them since 1987 as a doctor. I have spoken with patients in the waiting room who have had procedures done by Dr. Chavin including implantable pain pumps, spinal cord simulators and those who have used the accuspinal spinal decompression table (like a Vax-D) and have had great results. Certainly not all patients respond to injections or any other procedures from Dr. Chavin or any Doctor for that matter.
Dr. Chavin and his staff offer multiple approaches to pain management. If like the lady of 12-5-10 you have "mild pain on low dose pain meds" you should not go to Morristown Pain Consultants. Morristown Pain Consultants and Dr. Chavin have the expertise, experience, and ability to handle and treat severe pain problems. Mild pain should be treated by a family doctor or a "pill mill" that only offers narcotics.
Dr. Chavin explained that if a patient has significant pain and only wants pain medications, then given the amount of diversion and drug addiction he is not able to treat them. Dr. Chavin believes that patient's with real and significant pain are open and anxious to try different therapies for relief of their pain. Dr. Chavin told me that long narcotics usage in patients can very negative effects and that he only wants to work with patients that are motivated to get better and hopefully get on lower doses of narcotic and prescription drugs.
I admire Dr. Chavin for his passion to provide excellent and innovative care to his patients.
If you have severe pain and need help and have been to other Doctors that have not provided you with the relief that you need and deserve than I could not recommend Dr. Chavin and Morristown Pain Consultants more. From personal experience I can guarantee that Dr. Chavin and his staff will spend a lot of time working you up, ordering appropriate labs, scans, MRI's and whatever else you need to accurately diagnose and treat your unique pain problem.
Kudos to Morristown Pain Consultants and Dr. Chavin!
My neck pain is much better - I appreciate you! – Dr. Chavin and Staff have really helped with my pain problem
I was discharged from Dr. Mohamed for missing a pill count. Prior to this I had gone to Dr. McNeil at Bearden Pain Management and had to stop going because he lost the ability to take my insurance. Dr. McNeil had me on excessive oral medications which included 10 30 mg roxi's per day. Dr. Mohamed placed me on Methadone which didn't work and I ended up taking oxy from off the the street.
Dr. Chavin was very stern, which I appreciated and explained how I had an addiction issue as well as real pain.
Injections in the neck included epidruals and facet injections and along with proper pain medications I am much better and on much lower doses of medications overall.
I do appreciate you for your time and effort. I have recommended you to several friends
My back pain is much better! – I had been to several other doctors in Morristown, Johnson City and Greenville. I had been discharged for misuse of medications. I am lucky that Dr. M Chavin allowed me to come to his clinic.
When I first came to the clinic he read me the riot act. I deserved it and it helped straighen me out.
The first visit they spent about 70 minutes with me face to face. They really listened to me. After a complete work-up including bone scan, xrays, mri, dexa scan, and labs they figured out what was really wrong with me.
They were the first clinic to find out that mly testosterone was low and stated treating me. They were the only pain clinic that checked my liver function and found out that I had Hep C and got me treatement for this.
Dr. Chavin gave me injections which were helpfull and after this I underwent a spinal cord stimulator trial was relieved my pain of 9 years about 75%. After the implant I life is very much better and I have weaned off of almost all my narcotics. Thank G-d!
Thank you Dr M Chavin and Staff (Craig) for your help. I have recommended you to several friends and they are happy at your clinic.
If you have pain he can help – Best Pain MD in the area!
I have been reading reviews in the Morristown area for some time and after reading some of the reviews of Dr. Chavin I joined so that I could comment.
I have been with Dr. Chavin since early 2002. he has been in the same location for over 10 years. He and his staff have done a tremendous job with my pain and I have referred many patients to Dr. Chavin who have been very satisfied. My life is so much better for having gone to Dr. Chavin's clinic.
Dr. Chavin is very aggressive fighting the flood of drug addiction and diversion in east Tennessee. The problem is out of control. If you misuse your meds you will be thrown out of the clinic, period!
I know people who have been going to Florida on the "oxycontin express" to get large quantities of Roxicodone and Xanax to sell in the east Tennessee area. When they went to Dr. Chavin they were thrown out on their ears. I spoke with several of them who I know and they complained how easy it was to just show up in a Florida clinic and pay your $200 and get what ever you wanted, no questions asked. They stated how "rude" Dr. Chavin was. (what did they expect?)
They were pissed off because Dr. Chavin saw right through them and they were rejected and discharged.
For your information - one prescription of Roxicodone 30 mg given five per day has a street valve of $4,500 per month and and $54,000 per year. This is a prescription of 150 per month. Bearden Heathcare gives out 200 to 400 per month routinely!
At $30 dollars per pill street valve and selling 5 per day that is $150 per day x 30 days = $4,500/month. People that are selling these drugs are vicious and evil. Even if they take half and sell half they can easily make over two thousand dollars a month. Usually the drug sellers are addicted so even if they are selling some of their pills, if they also take the Roxicodone than their UDS shows the drug in it and it is difficult to detect that they are selling some of their pills.
Bottom line, if you have real severe pain and need expert help, Dr. Chavin can help. However, if you are a drug abuser or drug seller than Bearden Health was designed especially for you.
