As a specialist office, we can only treat chronic pain patients who have tried at least three months of pain management at the primary care or other specialist office.
Our drug test policy is among the toughest in the region. Unfortunately, in recent months we have had to discharge up to 50 patients a month due to aberrant drug test results. There is no “second chance” except for the most extraordinary circumstances.
We test urine at three levels:
– Cup test: quick screening for 12 drugs;
– Immunoassay test: high-complexity testing for 14 drugs;
- Confirmation testing at an outside independent laboratory
