Letter to Dr. Harry Taylor and Shannon Suhr, NP, at Aviva Health regarding worsening cognition and physical coordination of one of their patients that they seem to over-medicate without proper monitoring.
Usually when I read medical records from our local medical providers, I get sarcasm and disdain from them regarding the fact that I am also seeing their patient and allow them to use medical marijuana with or without opiate medications. Sometimes they go all out full-force and tell the patient that it is illegal to do so or that they will die with these medications. It is NOT illegal and patients who do not have addictions do not use their medications improperly to risk overdosing. Today was an actual surprise when I read a record that told the patient to continue to see Dr. George “whose management is appreciated.” I hope they don’t get into trouble for writing that.

Dr. Hoyne wastes patient's time "investigating" other doctor's practices by grilling them on how they operate, what they charge, and more. Yet he charges the patient's insurance for his time that has nothing to do with true patient care!
The FDA lacks any real “teeth” to do their job.
Per a letter I wrote awhile back, I see that the Oregon PDMP is finally reporting the refills properly per my suggestion.
Pulled out some records to check some things and refreshed myself with something I had been meaning to post earlier but got distracted.
I find it amazing that so many clinics, especially pain clinics are ignoring the requirements of having pain agreements and Material Risk Notices with their patients.
