Yesterday, I received a slick-looking, double sided marketing flyer, delivered straight to our home mailbox, advertising the "comprehensive pain management" services of a practice called "Tennessee Preferred Medical."
I'm thinking that whichever mailing list provider sold my name and address to "Tennessee Preferred Medical" won't be getting their business again, because really, it's just not a good idea to send marketing flyers for what sure looks to be a pill mill (albeit one that takes insurance) to the mother of a teenager who died as a result of pain pill peddling in our community.
This is my just-published open letter to Tennessee Preferred Medical. I will also be contacting the TBI, DEA, Tenncare hotline and state medical board with the questions and concerns that I uncovered after receiving that flyer in the mail. I hope that some other Knoxviews readers will do the same.
