Anyone gone from the practice of general anesthesiology to pain management recently? Is it worth switching now? It was much better time to switch in the early 1990's because of reimbursement. My jobs have been mainly anesthesiology, but I also have provided both acute and chronic pain management services. An anesthesia management company is taking over our hospital soon, and this may be an opportunity to change directions into a job with no call. Thank you in advance for your responses. I will also post a similar question in the pain forum.
