Our Narcotic Prescribing Policy:
As a comprehensive pain management practice, Pain Specialists of Columbia is proud to offer a variety of treatment solutions that enable our patients to safely and effectively manage their unique pain. As board certified pain management physicians, we have the ability to prescribe pain medications but emphasize that narcotics are ONE avenue of pain therapy and do represent the sole method of pain control. There is no implied or expressed patient right to narcotic therapy in our physician’s office.

Should pain medications be a part of a patient’s treatment plan, that patient must sign and abide by our Narcotic Prescribing Policy. As part of that policy, we expect the following behavior and responsibility from our patient:

Prescription Refill Policies
Patients need to give a 48-hour notice for refill requests. No refill requests can be taken after 12 PM (Noon) on Fridays. All patient phone calls or requests will be addressed by a nurse by the end of business each day.

Note: If you are addicted to pain medications and require an addiction specialist or are in need of a short-term or long-term detoxification program, please speak with your primary care physician. Your primary care physician may be able to recommend an appropriate treatment program.
