Medication Management

Medication works best when patients know what they’re for. As in all aspects of your care, we will collaborate closely with you on the choice and management of any medications. We will review your existing medications to check for drug interactions, and we will take the time to educate you about each prescription so you can be an active participant in your own treatment plan.

We will take as much time as needed to talk over your condition and treatment, to empower you in your own recovery.

The combination of customized treatment and patient education can help you recover more quickly from your pain or injury. To create the right plan, we start by determining an accurate diagnosis for the source of your pain. From there we can evaluate the evidence-based treatment options, working closely with you to determine which approaches are likely to be most effective for your individual situation.


Opioid Therapy

Use of opioids for chronic pain is controversial. We know that pain presents differently in different patients. For management of long-term chronic pain, we consider multiple options, including opioid alternatives, with the goal of improving mood, level of functioning, and quality of life.

Suboxone® for chronic pain

Developing a Suboxone treatment plan is a collaborative approach between patient and provider. Suboxone usage depends on the condition and treatment goals. Additionally, long-term Suboxone treatment can help minimize withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Non-opioid pain medications

Dr. Siefferman is trained to treat people who still have pain, even on high doses of opioids. Many non-opioid alternatives have proven to relieve symptoms and successfully help patients transition to non-opioid pain management and a higher quality of life.

Is ketamine the future of antidepressants?

Ketamine is commonly known as a "party drug," but it also may be the key to treating depression and chronic pain when nothing else works.
