Controlled Substances Policy
If you are prescribed any controlled substances while you are in the care of this office, you will be required to see a Therapist at least two times between appointments with one of our Physicians or ARNPs. The Therapist will closely monitor your progress on the medications, notify the doctor of any side effects and work with you to address any other concerns or issues you may have regarding your diagnosis.
We also routinely check the Florida Controlled Substance Database to ensure that you are not being prescribed controlled substances by other providers. This office policy has been put in force to help clients successfully manage their situation and not be prescribed any unnecessary drugs. If you choose not to follow this policy, we will discharge you from this office for being non-compliant.
