Philosophy
  • AMERICA'S OPIOID EPIDEMIC

    “The current opioid epidemic that is gripping our nation is indiscriminate. It is affecting our seniors to our children, our weekend warriors to professional athletes. I am met with a story daily describing tragedy associated with opioid abuse. Although necessary in very specific circumstances, the overprescription of opioids needs to be curtailed. As a member of the medical community that treats pain daily I will continue to strive to provide long term pain solutions independent of opioids. Further, I will continue to advocate and educate to the medical community at large regarding the non-opioid treatment options available to treat pain.”
    – Dr. Nomen Azeem, M.D.
