Doing What's Right

FOR OUR COMMUNITY 

We have established protocols for staff and physicians to ensure that our response is consistent with the standards of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state health departments. Many office visits can be done via Telemedicine.

Due to the increasingly stringent Shelter In Place orders, the need for determining true necessity for in-office visits is essential and required. Someone from your clinical team will contact you to determine your current needs.

Narcotic Prescription Policy

Regional pharmacies monitor patient use of narcotic pain medications and contact the prescribing physician(s) if a patient is receiving narcotic pain medication from more than one physician. If this office receives notification, from any source, that a patient is receiving narcotic pain medication from more than one physician, prescribing of such medication by this office will be immediately suspended.

Under no circumstances will narcotic pain medication be prescribed beyond a 90-day period. If narcotic pain management is required beyond 90 days, then a referral to a Chronic Pain Specialist will be made.

In the event of suspected narcotic abuse, further prescriptions of narcotic pain medications will not be made.

In the event of documented narcotic abuse, further prescriptions will not be made and the patient may be discharged from care.

In the event of suspected narcotic dependence, a referral to a Dependency Treatment Specialist can be made, at the patient's request.

If a patient has not been seen in this office during the preceding 3 months, no prescriptions will be "called-in" to the pharmacy without re-assessment of the patient. 

IF A REQUEST FOR A PRESCRIPTION REFILL HAS BEEN MADE BY TELEPHONE, THE PHYSICIAN MUST REVIEW YOUR CHART PRIOR TO CONTACTING THE PHARMACIST.  THEREFORE, YOUR REQUEST MAY NOT BE PROCESSED IMMEDIATELY.  IT IS THE POLICY OF THIS OFFICE TO COMPLETE ALL LEGITIMATE REQUESTS WITHIN 48 BUSINESS HOURS.  THEREFORE, REQUESTS MADE ON FRIDAY MAY NOT BE COMPLETED UNTIL THE FOLLOWING WEEK.
