Opioid Statement

While there are particular medications that we are willing to prescribe, we WILL NOT write more than what is recommended by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Furthermore, we will only prescribe under circumstances where a patient’s pathology warrants their use, the patient satisfies specific criteria, the patient has failed other lower risk treatment options, and maintains strict compliance to the provisions of our opioid contract.

Please note that we will not prescribe opioids on the initial visit and subsequent refills will not be provided without an office visit.
