Thank you for dramatically improving the quality of my life with your treatment of my neck and back. The epidural that you administered has significantly lowered my pain level, freeing me up to do things like play baseball with my son in the yard everyday, clean under the fridge and oven, etc. I even felt so much better that I signed my son who just turned 5 to play soccer. I also started looking into the possibility of going back to school myself and obtaining a Master's or Doctoral degree. Thanks again, Dr. Chavin, for giving my life back.

Warmly yours, MDH

Dr. Chavin: I injured my back in auto wreck and had whiplash injury. I had been to other clinics over the last 5 years and had epidural injections.

I appreciate that you spent a lot of time with me and did a thorough work-up. Your explanation that I had facet and sacroiliac joint pain from the whiplash injury after the auto accident made a lot of sense and when you did the combination of facet and sacroiliac joint injections it really made a difference. I appreciate you concern for your patients. I recommended my neighbor to your clinic and they were happy to come to you and have stated that their life is much better.

You have been very tough with me regarding my use of narcotics. You recognized that I had a problem and your strictness has really helped me. In a more relaxed environment I probably would have ended up addicted. Thanks for your toughness!. My family is also appreciative.

My back has hurt me since I was a child when I was in a car accident. High dose narcotics lead to addiction. Dr. Chavin worked with me and now I am on a low of medications with improved quality of life. The high dose Roxicodone really dragged me down. I feel like a heavy weight has been lifted of of me. Dr. Chavin explained to me about his injections and I am glad to have had them. Dr. Chavin was the first doctor to recommend chiropractic to me and it has really worked along with the injections and medications. I have told my family practice doctor about you in Jefferson City and he had also heard good things about Dr. Chavin also.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of nurse practitioner Craig Howard who passed away three weeks ago at the age of 55. He was a good man and an asset to Dr. Chavin and Morristown Pain Consultants. He was also kind and attentive during some of my visits

I couldn't be happier with the care given to me by Dr. Chavin and his staff!

I went to Bearden Pain management for my back and neck pain
and they rapidly increased me up to 8 roxi 30's per day with oxycontin 40 mg three per day. My meds were stolen by a friend and I was kicked out of that clinic. My family doc at Healthstar sent me there. I was driving from Morristown to Knoxville for almost two years.

Dr. Chavin actually did something for my back which included expertly done injections and then a spinal cord stimulator. Presently I am on 4 per day of lortab 10/500 down from the massive amount at Bearden Pain management. My pain is so much better and on much lower doses of medicine. Dr. Chavin and Staff worked hard to properly diagnose and treat me.

If you live in Morristown or the surrounding area, don't waste your time going to Knoxville or Johnson City for your care when Morristown Pain Consultants and Dr. Chavin are right here in Morristown!

I wish to thank Dr. Michael Chavin and staff for the excellent care. I am feeling much better since the injections in my back. I can get around better and also sleep better at night.

Thank you Dr. Chavin for your expertise and caring. You really listened to me and I appreciate your complete work-up. I had been to other local pain physicians and they spent very little time and were not committed like you are.

You offered more and delivered more. Thanks again! Sincerely, Sandy S

Dr. Chavin has helped me with both my neck and back pain. He and his staff did a detailed workup and spent a quite a bit of time with me during the initial visits.

His injections were very helpful and included a combination of cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) epidurals and facet joint injections which proved to be very helpful.

Most of my pain is related to the low back area. Dr. Chavin performed a spinal cord stimulator trial for my back back and leg pain. This provided the most relief that I had experienced over the last fifteen years! He them implanted the device and I have had dramatic review now for the past months.

If you have severe back and leg pain and tried other treatments with only minimal relief, you owe it to your self to try the spinal cord stimulator. Dr. Chavin is very expert at this procedure having performed over four hundred trials with over a sixty percent success rate. I have had pain for over fifteen years and no other clinic had ever discussed let alone offered me the spinal cord stimulator.

My back pain has been getting progressively worse over the last ten years. I had been to chiropractors and physical therapy with little relief. I had been to three physicians in Knoxville prior to going to Dr. Chavin.

He spent much time with me and both he and his staff did a complete workup - more than the other pain docs - and did a detailed physical exam.

He was the first physician to explain in detail what was wrong with my back. I had narrowing of the spine (stenosis) and degenerative disc disease (arthritis) of my lumbar spine.

Injections that Dr. Chavin did improved my overall condition but I still had pain down the leg on the right. He recommended a spinal cord stimulator which has reduced my pain over 75 %. When I contacted St. Jude which is the maker of the equipment. I found out that Dr. Chavin is the busiest physician inserting these in the Knoxville, Morristown and Johnson City area.

If you have severe back pain, I highly recommend the trial which allows you to try it for 5 or 6 days. Dr. Chavin you have changed my life, thank you!

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.

Dr. Chavin really helped with my pain. He was strict but there is such a severe drug problem. The injections really helped.
Dr. Chavin spent 1 1/2 hour on the first visit and ordered many tests and really worked me up. He diagnosed my problem and now my life is much better. Thanks!

Was expert at helping with my pain. Injections were very helpfull and then Dr. Chavin inserted a spinal cord stimulator which has taken away 90% of my pain.

I read other reviews from people who have been discharged - what do you expect! When I sat in the waiting room at Morristown Pain Consultants there were patients talking about how they were going to sell their drugs. That visit when the patient who was selling his drugs finished his visit he was discharged due to being short about 20 Roxicodone. When he came out to the waiting room he said that he was going to slander Dr. Chavin on the internet even though he was selling his drugs!

Dr. Chavin is very strict. If you can use your medications correctly and do abuse or sell them you have found a great doctor. If you abuse, sell or in any way misuse your medications you deserve to be discharged.

Wake up! Addiction and diversion of narcotics is an epidemic destroying the very soul of our town and society. Morristown is infested with drug abuse and the police and TBI are impotent to control it. Because of the low life drug dealers, they are making it almost impossible for people with real pain to get the help they need.

Dr. Chavin is on the front line of this curse of drug addiction and diversion. l applaud his passion!

I read some of the other negative comments abouth Morristown Pain Consultants (MPC) and Dr. Chavin.

Dr. Chavin has been at the same location for over ten years and has over 1000 active patients. He was the first pain center that was devoted exclusively to pain maangment.

Dr. Chavin offers a full range of services from medication managment only to injections in the neck, low back and other joints.

Dr. Chvin offers spinal cord stimulators and pain pumps. He has spinal decompresion.

How do I know this. I have been of Dr. Chavins patients since September of 2000.. Yes he is tough and will discharge you for misuse of medications.

But..... If you not a drug addict or drug pusher and you are willing to use your narcotics correctly....He is excellent!
