We, at the Pain Management Center
of Paducah, are committed to doing all we can to treat your chronic
pain condition. In some cases, narcotics are used as a therapeutic
option in the management of chronic pain, which is strictly regulated
by both state and federal agencies. This agreement is a tool to protect
both you and the physician by establishing guidelines, within the
laws, for proper and controlled substance use.
All controlled substances must come from
the physician whose signature appears below or, during his absence,
by the covering physician, unless specific authorization is obtained
for an exception.
All controlled substances
must be obtained at the same pharmacy, where possible. Should the need arise
to change pharmacies our office must be informed. The pharmacy
that you have selected is:

full access to our records of controlled substances administration.

to these policies may result in cessation of therapy with controlled
substance prescribing by this physician.
You affirm that you have full right and
power to sign and be bound by this agreement, and that you have
read, understand, and accept all of its terms.
