Patient & New Patient Resources

Dr. Chakerian sees new patients by referral only.  Referral may come from your primary care doctor or whichever specialist is currently treating you.  Once we receive a referral from your doctor, we will request copies of all of the medical records pertaining to the problem for which you are seeking treatment.  Dr. Chakerian reviews all of this material in order to determine if she can help you.  Until Dr. Chakerian has all of your records, this decision cannot be made.  You may be able to speed up the process by making the request to have your doctor release your records to Dr. Chakerian, and signing a “Release of Medical Information” consent form.

Dr. Chakerian has a policy regarding the prescribing of controlled substances, and every patient who receives a prescription for controlled substances needs to read and sign an agreement regarding these medications.  The agreement can be viewed in the Patient Welcome Pack.  Not all patients are candidates for this type of medication, and not all patients will benefit by this type of medication.  In addition, there are instances where people abuse, divert, or become addicted to certain controlled medications.  In order to protect your health and Dr. Chakerian’s prescribing ability, patients are monitored very closely for possible addiction, abuse, and diversion.  This monitoring includes frequent follow-up office visits, urine drug screens, and the sharing of medical records between your physicians and your pharmacies.  You should not expect to receive a prescription for a controlled substance at your first visit, and Dr. Chakerian generally does not take over the prescribing of controlled substances from other doctors.
