now a pain specialist?

This physician is now a pain specialist, though I cannot locate any information about his training in pain medicine. Maybe it is there, but you would think it would be made public, if it exists. I had the feeling that he was rather a beginner at this. He was supported during the whole visit by another person from the pain management team. I arrived early to fill out paperwork, but was roomed right away. He kept wanting to begin, but I kept pointing to the paperwork. Finally, still before the scheduled time, we just began, and several times during the visit he pointed to the paperwork and pointed out that I had not completed it. I don't believe he was fully aware of all facets of the drug he prescribed, neither its form nor its half life nor some of the possible complications, but that is very detailed, so I won't go into it. After one phone call, he wrote in my chart that I had very poor coping skills. The pain management psychologist and I had a good laugh about that. But he has helped me in one major respect. He wrote in y chart that I had an "unrealistic expectation of cure". This so inspired me to prove him wrong that I no longer have chronic pain. I guess, from his perspective, chronic pain is incurable because he doesn't really know enough cure it.
