How many of you have a PA or NP working in a private practice pain management clinic? What's the expected salary for a new hire? It would be nice to have someone who can see patients and deal with issues when I'm out of the office.

The hospital has one that spends two days a week with me and two days with my main pcp referral source so that works great. She helps catch for me over there. I sign all of the scripts and discuss every patient with her.

In an academic setting, but I work with PA's who are very proficient and knowledgeable. No idea what they get paid. If you hire someone, you should check your state laws about supervision requirements and budget time for case discussion and supervision, to make sure that patients are being managed the way you would want, otherwise you will have some unwelcome surprises.
