When you are facing a serious illness,
We stand by you for life.
For our current patients from Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, and Mississippi, their answer is yes. The reason is simple - we are with you for life. Our treatments usually make you feel better, often normal and well. Our services are broad within the scope of our competence and capacity. We have given suboxone since 2011.
We focus on making our service to you support your ability to work and prosper. Most of our patients work, usually very hard, and all of our patients contribute to their family and their community. Your success matters and if you’re not working, we will provide guidance to be productive again. If you are working, we want you to make as much money as is legally and morally possible. Some of our patients see an astonishing increase in their take-home pay with ongoing, continuous treatment.
You are working 10-12 hours per day, six days a week, often a long way from your home in Tennessee, sleeping at Super Six, and eating at McDonald’s. Your time is limited. You need us to be flexible and supportive within the limits of the state and federal rules. You are a busy professional supporting children and adolescents. Your time is precious. Each of you has your own unique requirements. All of you need us to be respectful of your time.
We have provided services in the common diseases of internal medicine, as well as depression, for two decades to the uninsured patient. We are experienced in giving you treatments which you can afford. All our services are covered within our basic price. We do not provide emergency room, procedures, or inpatient services. There are limits which are defined by our competence, scope of practice, and the fact that we are an ambulatory clinic. You must pay for your own medicine. We are not a substitute for an excellent insurance policy. Whatever your circumstances, we welcome you.
We are delighted that you have just entered the “free world.” You will be experiencing cravings and compulsions. The scene has changed. The world you are entering has become much more dangerous if you choose to use heroin again. Re-entering the free world carries an increased risk from overdose. It is important to us that you keep your freedom and life. We will provide you with guidance to enable you to earn the trust of your officer. We will write letters to ensure that you are not forced off suboxone due to arbitrary, administrative decisions.
Medical care has become so much better. Medical science has been extraordinarily prolific in producing new, effective treatments. It is a blessing to live today. Medical care has also become much more industrialized and much more systematic. The best physician for you for your specific problem may be next door to you, in a regional medical center or in a national medical center. Sorting through this decision-making process is complicated.
We are independent. We have contemporary knowledge of Tennessee. We have sent patients recently to Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins Hospitals, and MD Anderson. We will assist you in choosing your portfolio of physicians and medical centers. We can and will give you objective advice which your physician who is employed by the Medical Center is no longer allowed to do. We are in private practice in a wholly owned physician practice with no hidden obligations to any major medical center which restricts our independent judgement. We receive no payments from any medical centers. We have no conflicts of interest which would distort our advice to you. Our families receive medical care from physicians at independent private practices, from physicians employed by major medical centers, from physicians employed by community health centers and by physicians who are located outside of Tennessee. We will provide you with objective advice.
