Need doctor's help! what doctors can perscribe meds like percocets for back pain?

Pain meds: Any doctor with a dea license can prescribe opioid pain medications.
The real question is whether or not you need them.
I would visit a physician for a full physical examination and look for other ways to treat your pain other than just using opioid, pain medications.
