Family Med Physician for chronic illness/recovery work, 3 days/week
Family Medicine Southfield, MI
Wednesday - Friday every week (10am-4pm)
The work involves alleviating chronic pain due to genetic malformations, major traumas or the standard recovery following a significant surgery.
Physicians must evaluate, diagnose, and treat all different types of pain across a wide spectrum of disorders including acute pain, chronic pain and cancer pain and sometimes a combination of these.
Physicians are required to perform a general physical exam (urine samples are taken by an MA). The doctor will also manage pain that is caused by injury, nerve damage, and metabolic problems such as diabetes.
• Chronic pain management is performed with both oral and topical therapies to manage
acute and chronic pain.
• All patients must be listed in the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS).
• All patients must provide either an MRI, CT or Xray confirming condition.
• Oral medications include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),
acetaminophen, and opioids.
• Also prescribed are medications that can be applied to the skin, whether as an ointment
or cream or by a patch that is applied to the skin, such as lidocaine.
• Physicians sometimes prescribe treatments that do not involve medications but reduce
pain such as physical therapy.
• No pain injections or invasive procedures are performed.
