Offering telemedicine options for stable patients - by appointment.
As one of first 100 physicians to specialize in pain in the US, about two years after the launch of Oxycontin, I resigned from the speaker's paneI in 1998, and in a sense foresaw the opioid epidemic. Many more patients were addicted than reported by Purdue, and then other companies who jumped on the bandwagon. The FDA ignored pleas for more regulation, and the rest is truly sad. More American lives are lost on a yearly basis than the war in Vietnam. Like physicians who have treated patients for pain over the last 20 years, I have also treated those with opioid use disorder. Please note many opioid dependencies start with chronic pain which still will need to be treated.
