When requesting a refill, please be sure to tell us the name of the medicine, the dose, how you take it, and your pharmacy. Please give us at least 2 business days to send in your prescription.

Controlled Substances/Narcotics

Narcotic medications are difficult to regulate and can be addictive. We avoid their use whenever possible, typically limiting them to terminal or end-stage conditions. There are other controlled substances including benzodiazepines and stimulants. These all have potentially serious adverse effects and use is avoided. Patients who require control substances will be asked to sign an agreement with me. No controlled substances are kept at this office.
