Notes about Narcotic Management:

APMCI can evaluate your patients for medical management of their pain. Our goal is to reduce patients' pain and improve function, while avoiding the long term use of narcotics, if possible. Sometimes narcotic medications are prescribed as part of the treatment plan, sometimes they are not recommended. Due to the considerable risk for addiction, APMCI strives to provide the safest practices regarding controlled substances. Due to the stringent evaluation process, narcotics are not prescribed on the first visit. Narcotics are never phoned in from this practice. Patients are closely and carefully monitored, and there is open communication between our practice and the PCP. Please see our information, (link below) regarding our policies on narcotic management.
