Brief Answer:
Not likely to find one.

Detailed Answer:
Florida is under extremely close scrutiny for being a center of narcotic over prescription. It is doubtful any doctor in Florida is going to take on a new patient for narcotic prescribing.

While looking for dedicated pain clinics associated with University Hospitals is the best course of legitimate therapy, it probably will not work. Emergency rooms, orthopedists, and seriously consider addiction treatment clinics are alternatives that are not entirely satisfactory, but there are few options likely to succeed in Florida.
