I am desperately in need of any information on how I can find a really good Spine Clinic or Specialist in Georgia, preferably in the metro Atlanta area. I contacted the Spine Institute 7 months ago to see if I would be a candidate for laser spine therapy , but unfortunately I would have to leave the state of Georgia, I am in so much pain right now, I already contacted my PCP I’m waiting to see if she can refer me to someone that can see me ASAP. I hate my Neurosurgeon keeps stringing me along , at first he claims he could not read my MRI clearly because it was of poor quality, but he told me someone would contact me about setting up an appointment for a new one, he prescribed an oral Steroid, weeks went by so I called his office today to find out he never ordered the MRI because he thought the Pain
Management that referred me to him would. I have went from the Pharmacy trying to deny my pain meds, right arm radiating pain and tremors, to now excruciating pain in my neck and shoulder on the same right side. I just need to find a Spine Clinic and or Spine specialist, because the pain keeps me up, NO pain medicines are working, and the pain gets really intense when I try to sit at my desk to work, I’m exhausted , and my pain level feels like a 12 at times

Is there 1 at an university? I go to one at my state's university.
