Medications & Refill Requests

Our practice does not prescribe narcotic medications only, we use a multi-adjuvant combination of non narcotic medications, interventional procedures, physical therapy and combination therapies such as psychological or nutrition management to control your pain condition. Please discuss your medication needs, including refill requests, with our physicians at the time of your appointment. Medications should be taken only as prescribed, if opiates are prescribed by practice you may need to sign an Opiate Contract. Please do not request early refills of your medications. Patients are responsible for lost or stolen medications and prescriptions once they leave the office. Please do not call the office for a medication refill.
