    Im a drug seeker....

    I had an accident about 2 weeks ago. Ive been in pain ever since. Ive gone to see Chad at Back in Balance a chiropractor with the best practice in the area. After my accident I was diagnosed with a possible torn meniscus and compressed disc, as well as a sprained cervical and bicep tendonitis.

    I dealt with pain for almost 2 weeks before it was affecting my daily life. I own a business where i stand for 9 hours a day on a knee with a possible torn meniscus and i couldnt sit at my computer to do my orders because of my shoulder back and neck. For this reason I finally asked chad for a referral to a pain management doctor.

    I have my med card in NYS so I usually take my product for pain but because this was not working i had no other choice but to seek for something more. Id been 5 days without sleep. Unable to do work begging for help.

    I go see dr merrihew and it solidifies the he fact that im done with doctors.. I walk into merrihews explain my accident and pain to the nurse and receptionist and they were so wonderful. But then doctor merrihew comes in. At that point im now looked at as a drug seeking user. Im trying to explain how my pain is not centralized thats its all in the joint. He then called me a smartass because i couldnt target my pain on the surface as it was NOT surface pain. I land 245 lbs down on my elbow and after being told by a chiropractor and orthopedic i have injury, merrihew basically states that the ortho and chiropractor are wrong and i have no injuries other than a knot in my back... basically telling me that the doctor i have seen for the past week doesnt know what hes talking about... its great when you contradict another professional who specializes in something more than a common cold.

    Its not my fault that you run a suboxone program revolving around money and addicts so when someone comes in with legit pain they are seen as a drug addict. I havent taken a narcotic in almost 8 years since i broke my foot. My pain was unbearable for days and i was about to take a 4 hour drive i had to make for my business.

    Instead of getting the benefit of the doubt I basically get called a drug addict. Seeking narcotics for personal gain. I was given 2mg valium and told to take them until they were gone. 12mg of valium a day. Given a narcotic to treat an injury that was said by my chirpractor to be deeper than muscle tissues.

    Its a sad truth when you find out that a doctor is truly only in it for the money. If i was truly an addict. Id be pumped with suboxone making this practice money.

    You ask anyone that shops at our business and they will tell you we push Cbd over narcotics. They natural and work better but when my last rrsort for pain doesnt work and im forced to go see a doctor i dont wat to see. Its obsurd and unprofessional to assume that i am just a drug seeking drug addict....

    Now hang on while i go shoot my heroine and stuff since im being seen as a drug addict who can get no relief for my pain...

    Go spend your money or speak with a doctor who cares. Someone who wont view everyone as a drug addict because they run a suboxone program revolving around insurance companies and doctors making money off addicts...

    Truly a gem of a doctor - well worth the wait!!!

    Dr Merrihew is the kind of doctor I haven't seen since Marcus Welby. He spends real time with his patients and is truly concerned for their welfare. Yes, the wait can be long - but he spends the same quality time with each of his patients, and he is the last vestige of the family doctor not found with the corporate medial centers and insurance mills. For the first time in a very, very long time I feel I have found a wonderful doctor. Well worth the wait!!!

    Date: September 13, 2016

    Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Donald Merrihew, Jr.'s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system effective September 12, 2016. Dr. Merrihew's last known business address is 319 Bay Road, Queensbury, New York 12804.

    The Chair’s designee's investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC) has issued Order # 16-300, wherein Dr. Merrihew did not contest the First Specification of Charges, that his care of three patients deviated from accepted standards of care, including failure to obtain and/or document adequate physical exams, that he prescribed Klonopin, Suboxone and amphetamines without adequate medical indication, that he prescribed inappropriate combinations of controlled substances, that he failed to adequately manage and/or document medication therapy, and that he failed to maintain a medical record that accurately reflected the evaluation and/or treatment of patients. This resulted in a 24 month stayed suspension and a 24 month probationary period, during which he may practice medicine only when monitored by a licensed physician, board certified in an appropriate specialty (“Practice Monitor”), and he must complete a continuing education program in areas to be decided by the Director of BPMC.

    Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Merrihew may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

    Dr. Merrihew is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Merrihew for services rendered prior to September 12, 2016 are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Merrihew for services rendered prior to September 12, 2016, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorization.

    This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director’s Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.
