LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Patients have been left in limbo after three medical offices abruptly closed after a FBI and DEA raid. The investigation centers on the Bluegrass Pain Consultants in Louisville and LaGrange.

WAVE 3 News has gotten several phone calls, emails and messages on social media from patients wondering what they should do since three pain management clinics abruptly closed on Tuesday after a raid by the FBI and DEA.

On Wednesday, patients were still coming in for appointments because they were not aware the offices were closed. A handwritten sign on the door said they would be back open on June 15.

Law enforcement officers were in and out of the Bluegrass Pain Consultants offices in Louisville and LaGrange on Tuesday. The offices are located at 10241 Champion Farms Drive in Louisville, 6400 Dutchmans Parkway, Suite 60 in Louisville and 1009 New Moody Lane in LaGrange.

WAVE 3 News has left messages for Bluegrass Pain Consultants and have not heard back.

The FBI, DEA, Kentucky State Police and LMPD were at the offices Tuesday taking in empty boxes and coming out with them full of evidence and taken out in a moving van.

The FBI sent a statement to WAVE 3 News:

"We {FBI} are conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity at multiple locations around Louisville as part of an ongoing investigation. Since it's an ongoing investigation, we do not have further comment. There is no danger to the community."

The FBI said they had no additional information on Wednesday.

Patients who had appointments and needed prescriptions refilled are now trying to figure out what to do. Some say they will try to seek help through their primary care physician.

"Seeing that they are closed, I'm finding out now that there is an investigation going on kind of have a lot of questions," patient Tammy Clinton said.

According to the Bluegrass Pain Consultants website, they offer treatment of chronic and acute pain. Dr. Christopher Nelson is the President/CEO and Dr. Brandon Sutton and Dr. Alexander Sinofsky are also physicians with the group.

According to the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure, there are no grievances against Dr. Sutton or Dr. Sinofsky.  Dr. Nelson does have some grievances but, no disciplinary action by the medical board. As of now, the three doctors still have an active medical license.
