FAQs

To help you understand our centers, following are some frequently asked questions:

What is the wait time for a patient to be seen?
The wait time fluctuates, but generally it takes 4-6 weeks to see a medical provider here.

What about medication management?
Our medical providers offer evaluation and recommendations regarding medications for chronic pain. If the patient is willing, we will work with them until his or her medication regimen is stable, which means that the patient is satisfied with his/her medication regimen, the patient is not demonstrating aberrant behaviors around medication usage, and any opioid dosages are in the safer/lower range. Once these goals are reached, we ask that patients return to their referring provider for refills of stable medications.

If you will not prescribe a stable low dose of opioid, then please indicate this in your referral so that we are alerted not to include opioids in our long-term medication plan. If you will not prescribe any medications for pain, even non-opioid analgesics, then the medication consultation we offer will not likely be beneficial for your patient.

What about prescribing Suboxone?
We have a Suboxone prescriber at our center at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center. Suboxone is offered to patients who have struggled with a conservative opioid taper and do not have a primary diagnosis of substance use disorder (SUD). In the case of active, untreated SUD, we would defer to an addictionologist.

Do you accept patients with Medicaid? Oregon: We offer evaluation for Medicaid patients, and if appropriate, follow-up care for as much as their plan will support. This varies anywhere from one to six visits depending on the plan and the patient’s pain condition.

Washington Medicaid members: We offer medical evaluation and ongoing treatment if/as indicated at our center on the Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center campus.

Do you prescribe opioids to patients who are using marijuana? The use of opioids for chronic pain is controversial and associated with serious adverse health effects. The addition of marijuana has been associated with opioid misuse and is generally not recommended. Please refer to the following:
