Pill Mills in Florida & Unintended Consequences

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Florida pill mills have come under close scrutiny from investigators since new laws went into effect last year.  In fact, it has been reported that over 400 Florida pain clinics have been shut down or closed in the last year.

But are the new regulations too broad?  Do these regulations make it difficult for patients with legitimate pain issues to get treatment? Also, how do these regulations interfere with a physician’s legitimate practice?

While looking into some of these issues, I came across a video of a medical director being interviewed about the unintended consequences of the pill mill laws.  Toward the end of the interview, he discusses what changes he had to make to his website/advertising and how this change may make it harder for patients dealing with chronic pain to seek treatment.
