You most certainly did more harm then good for the majority of people who were seeing Dr. A. We chronic pain patients nor did Dr. A cause your husband to come to him, your husband had to be referred by his family Dr. or another Dr. that your husband had seen. You stated you called numerous people complaining about Dr. A. well you accomplished what you set out to do. I know this will really seem mean to say but I HOPE you will have to suffer pain 24/7 one day and see for yourself how unbearable this is. I'm not wishing pain on you but for just one day if you had to endure the pain that we as chronic pain patients endure 24/7, 365 days then you would realize just how important Pain Management really is. Words cannot express how much of a horrible, mean person you seem to be.

treated badly

i went to the doctor for about 5 years and never had a problem with his treatment of my problems. He was recently shut down because of several things not anyone is really sure of. I know that i took my medications the way i was supposed to and everything was fine. People who have bad things to say about him were the ones over-taking, selling, trading, etc their scripts. Alot of people really needed him and now he is unavailable. Thank goodness i have a family doctor who is willing to help me and not charge 800.00 like places in huntsville. Goodluck Dr. Aggarwal, hope all goes well with you and i will keep you in my prayers.

Have been in severe chronic pain for 23 yrs. Two failed spinal fusions and every pain injection procedure known to man. Permanent nerve damage and progressive degeneration. Dr Agg treated me with respect and without discrimination. He managed my "untreatable" pain without overmedication. I was thrilled to have 70% of normal capability and minimal-moderate pain for the past 12 yrs. I was able to be with my father when he passed away 2 yrs ago, and even travel with my husband on vacation once a year. Im not sure why Dr. Agg was shut down. Have read all the hate mail directed at his practice and at us "druggies". The new intolerant Christian attitude here in SE Huntsville. My pain is a result of accident coupled with genetics. I will pray that you hate-mongers and the ill-informed folks who shut Dr. Agg down, will never have to suffer the physical pain that I carry or have to watch a loved one struggle with it every minute of every day of ever year. I hope I can be called as a character witness for Dr. Agg. His only crime, was to adequately treat intractable pain to the best of his ability.
