I have gone to an Internal Medicine doctor 25 years,

Customer Question

I have gone to an Internal Medicine doctor for about 25 years, today, he asked me to sign a "Chronic Pain Patient" form. I'd refused to sign it but I'd like to know why I was asked to sign this form. I do not take any pills for pain. Thank you

HelloIf you are not a pain patient, there was no reason to fill out the form.It might have been a mistake.If you are a chronic pain patient, then the form is for contractual purposes, so that you understand your, and the doctors, roles and responsibilities.Certainly, we can not say why your doctor does what he does without being part of his practice, but those would be the standard reasons. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
