What does it mean when my PTP says I will be seen in his office on a p.r.n. basis?

California Workers' Comp., Doctor
Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your quesiton.

PRN means Pro Re Nata - it ia a latin phrase meaning ' as circumstances arise'.

In medical clinics, the phrase is used when the patient needs to be seen ' as needed' or 'when the situation arises'.

Basically, you will be seen when you have any medical problem .

I hope this helps
.
