We are still accepting new patients for a limited time only. Call 352-224-3139 to schedule your appointment now. Get healthier in 2013! Be honest with yourself and your doctor. Decide what is best for you and Doctor Gorrell is here to support you. If you’re coming from a “pill mill” where the doctor has lost his license, and you know that you have a drug problem, make this the year where you get the destructive opioid addiction out of your life. Take positive control by resetting your physiology with Suboxone. You do not have to suffer and go through a cold turkey withdrawal. This is rarely effective, and frequently people relapse. We offer a multidisciplinary approach including medication management, physiological repair, and psychotherapy. We refer to therapist in the community and work to create a customized program for our patients.
If your chronic pain patient in legitimate pain, Doctor Gorrell is a compassionate and caring physician who work hard to manage your pain. Again a multidisciplinary approach will be created which is customized to your problem. We offer interventional pain blocks, medication management, and referrals to orthopedic and spine surgery as indicated. All FDA approved medications may be prescribed in our quest to control your pain. We DO NOT OFFER A MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! This is a ridiculous proposal! We guarantee that you will see the doctor and he will listen to you. We guarantee that you will be provided a complete physical exam. We guarantee our best effort to treat patients to the standard of care and follow the best practices in medicine and in pain management. We guarantee that you will be treated with respect and dignity. Exams are performed with clothing on but if you are ever uncomfortable, you can ask for a chaperone to be present in the room at any time. Currently, we accept Medicare and soon will be on the panel with simply healthcare. Call now before the slots for new patients are filled.

Act now to get in and start the process of getting off opiates! To be a candidate, you must be tapered down to a moderate/low level of opiates equivalent to about 30 mg of methadone a day. Then the cost is only $350 for the 1st months worth of visits which usually takes 3 to 4 office visits on average and follow-up monthly maintenance visits are only $150. This is a real bargain considering how much time, energy, money and effort is spent on finding these medications and purchasing them if you do not really need to be on them. The shortage on all opiates is only getting worse as the DEA continues to clamp down on the supply. Do yourself a favor and get out of the rat race.
Additionally, more and more pain clinics are going out of business. According to patients who call our office, Dr Keesal’s office is now closed for example. We also know that MD and more is having trouble as they are short a Dr. If you have been in pain management and have realized that you have been taking opiates for the wrong reasons, come see us so we can begin to plan an exit strategy for you! Doctor Gorrell will personally meet with you and customize the plan to minimize your discomfort, make things affordable, and rebuild your neurochemistry so you can be off narcotics without suffering withdrawal symptoms and having chronic cravings for them. Because of the shortage of oxycodone and opiates which is driven by DEA action, it is actually cheaper and easier to find Suboxone! Call 352-224-3139 now!

The American Academy of professional coders is having a fantastic chapter seminar today which starts 7:15 AM. It is their local billing and coding symposium and you can get 7 CEU’s! If you are practice manager, Biller, coder, healthcare provider, or a physician who wants to better understand where the money comes from and how to get paid, you need to be there.
There will be a vendor booth section as well and people are coming from as far away as Miami! See speaker roster below and I urge you to become a certified professional coder and certified practice manager if you’re not on yet. It is only way to get paid with the insurance companies continuing to restrict reimbursements. Remember if you are a physician, all billing and coding errors are done under your license. If there is an error, it is considered health care fraud. If we charge you with Medicaid fraud, and successfully prosecute you. Under new Florida law, your license to practice. So it is actually very important for you are someone from your staff to come to these type of events. Also come to events like these to learn how to be audit proof when your RAC audit comes to her facility/physician’s office.

Patients from Trident pain management/Trident wellness Center state that they are being rescheduled because there is no doctor available at present!
Today on Friday, May 25, 2012 at 10:30 AM, the phone number for Trident at 6131 US 19 New Port Richey, FL: 727-842-6900 was called several times. I was only able to get an answering machine. I was unable to get a live person on the phone. I’m in the process of verifying the above statement by several new patients to our clinic. As a pain management physician, I’m concerned if any patients are unable to be seen every 30 days For their medication renewals as they are at risk of going into acute withdrawl. Additionally, they frequently must turn to the emergency rooms for usually a 5 day supply of medication or oftentimes no medication at all. The emergency room physicians are not able to properly manage chronic pain patients. We are. If you are having problems getting access to a pain management physician please call our office at 352-224-3139. We have appointments available today and a limited number of positions available for new patients in the future. Call now to schedule your appointment before the panel for new patients is closed! We accept Medicare and we are out a network with all other insurances at present but we will submit a billing claim form and if you have out-of-network benefits, they will pay at your out-of-network benefit rate. We are owned and operated by board-certified anesthesiologist. You should seek out a pain management clinic that is physician owned and operated so you can have continuity of care. You not be confused by Facilities that change their names from pain management to wellness centers because they are likely under the microscope and trying to skirt certain state laws go to sleep alone with
For new patients we require a six-month pharmacy transcript, your most recent CT or MRI reports, and the most recent 3 months of medical records from your current pain management provider. It is preferred you bring copies with you as this often speeds things up. But we still have to go through a document verification process where we are dependent on other facilities to respond to us. Initial visit therefore requires waiting for the documents to be verified which could take 3 to 4 hours unless you come a day in advance to start the process. We therefore request especially on initial visits that the patient comes alone. Please did not bring your significant other, children, etc. if at all possible.
We look forward to serving you and helping to stamp out pain in your life!
