The best way to find a pain clinic is to ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a pain specialist or pain clinic.  This method also raises the likelihood your insurance will agree to pay.  Otherwise check the listings at the Board of Anesthesiologists (online) for local doctors as most pain specialists are board certified in Anesthesiology.
