Witnessed Drug Screenings
“At Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers ® all patients undergo witnessed drug screens. It is a fact that 1 out of 3 patients is either diverting or abusing their medication. We can have no part in that. And we have to make sure that our patients are doing the right thing – and that we are doing the right thing. Having a strict protocol that all patients must adhere to protects us and our patients and ensures that all patients are treated equally. ” ~ Dr. Tonkin
Every time you visit Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers ® we will conduct a Pill Count. We’ll ask that you bring all your prescriptions so we can see exactly what you’re taking and if any of the pills interact with each other. Our staff will also have you count your prescription pain pills to make sure the correct dosage is taken.
We Care About Your Health
Vitals are taken at each visit. Justin explains the reasons for some of our policies. At Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers ® nobody is judged: all our patients are treated fairly and equally.
Where Does It Hurt?
It is important for us at Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers ® to try and find the source of your pain and not just mask the pain with pills. We strive to correct the underlying condition to relieve your pain. Often patients undergo corrective surgery and interventional procedures, but their pain continues. When these procedures fail, many patients are left to suffer. Our goal is to help lessen the discomfort and pain to a level that allows you to resume your daily routine, return to work, and optimize your social and family relationships.
Initial Meeting with Doctor Tonkin
Your first meeting with Doctor Tonkin will include going over your history, a physical exam, locating your pain, and a discussion about how you’re currently taking your medications.
How We Prescribe at Elite Pain Management
For your own safety, we are very particular about how you fill, take, and store your prescriptions. If something was to happen to your prescriptions and you weren’t following our protocol, we will not refill them for you early.
