Hello, I am in Maryland and looking for a doctor that can help me. I know you posted this almost 5 years ago, but you had said you found a good doctor here in Maryland. I am desperate to find a doctor who knows what I am going through and willing to help. I have been turned down by three doctors all of which are telling me to go to a pain specialist. If you know of anyone in the area, please let me know and also if he did help and how you are doing?

Thank you Marcie
