Harvey C. Jenkins, MD, PhD
A United States Casualty of Gross Government Overreach
This is His Story
He received his BS degree in Chemistry, and went on to do graduate study in Biochemistry at West Virginia University in Morgantown. From there he went to Duke University to study Medicine and then on to residency training in Orthopedic Surgery. He then completed his fellowship in Spine Surgery at Beth Israel Hospital, as part of the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Fellowships, training with Dr. Augustus White III that year, who was probably the equivalent of Michael Jordan in the field of Spine Surgery. He began practicing in Oklahoma City and now considers it his home. Although he is not currently practicing clinical medicine or surgery, his mission is far from over.
Most people know him from nearly 15 years of practice in Spine Surgery, aesthetic medicine and pain management. What he would like to be known for is his advocacy for people who are living with pain and the practitioners who treat them.

This book teaches you in simple, understandable language how to navigate through the stigma that encompasses people in pain to find the care that you need. It explains how to find a doctor, what to expect when you are there, and how to avoid the “traps” of being “fired” as a patient. As the climate of treating pain and seeking pain treatment become increasing repressive, this guide will put you ahead of game, so you can worry about the more important things in life, and not just your pain.
The topics we cover in this book include Knowing how to effectively communicate your pain, the ways to find the right doctor, why going to the ER may be the worst choice for you, understanding how a physician evaluates you, and how he or she formulates your the treatment plan for you pain, and your responsibility as a patient which is what will determine the longevity of the care you receive. And finally, the “F” word in Pain-Management—“FIRED”. We discuss what to do and what not do if it happens to you.
Book 2 — 5 Ways to Effortlessly Outsmart Your Pain Doctor by Harvey Jenkins MD PhD
This book is the book your pain doctor does not want you to read. Yet, it is essential reading for the chronic pain sufferer, who finds him or herself in the middle of a ‘battlefield’ known as pain management. In the chapters, we discuss this “war”, the landmines and traps to be aware of, as well as the things you must do to protect yourself, against one of your potential foes–your own doctor. Once you figure out the dangers and pitfalls, you will not only be prepared to defend yourself on the battlefield, but you will be victorious.
To understand this “War”, we get inside of the mind of your physician, discuss what he or she presumes about you, reveal the traps that have already been set for you, and what you need to know to win this battle and war.
