Narcotics or opioids will not be filled at initial new patient appointments. However, anyone determined by our physician to need narcotics for short-term pain relief will be required to sign and adhere to our pain management agreement. This agreement ensures that the physician and patient have an understanding about the issues involved with taking and monitoring pain medication. Additionally, if it is considered necessary, patients will be referred to a pain clinic for long term narcotic management.
