No worries: We are currently accepting patients for evaluation and pump management

by Leanne Cianfrini on 10/17/13

The Doleys Clinic has operated a pump (implanted drug administration system) refill clinic for over a decade with an experienced pump refill nurse. Our clinic director, Dr. Daniel Doleys, is a nationally-recognized speaker on the topic of implantable therapies.  We work closely with anesthesiologists and Medtronic reps to provide quality service at all levels of pump maintenance.  Our clinic physicians are preferred Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Alabama providers, and we are also Medicare providers.  For all other insurance networks, we can still care for you at the "out-of-network" rate.

If you are a chronic pain patient with an active pump and are looking for a new clinic to manage your care, please give us a call to discuss your options -- Contact Lesley at (205) 982-3596 extension 222.

by Leanne Cianfrini on 09/11/13

There is still time to catch the low early bird registration rates for our next CME/CEU workshop.  We're offering credit hours for physicians, nurses, psychologists, case managers, and physical therapists.  The topic is Pain and Polypharmacy: The Fine Line Between Help and Harm, and it will be held at the clinic on Friday, November 15th.  Download the informational brochure here and register by fax or mail.  Space will be limited, so please save your space early!  We look forward to seeing you there!

Our Pain Management Class DVDs are FINALLY here!

by Leanne Cianfrini on 01/23/13

As you may know, The Doleys Clinic has offered our 6-session pain management course for over 15 years as an essential requirement of our comprehensive clinic protocol.   These classes cover a range of pain and wellness topics:  1) Understanding Medications, 2) Pain Mechanisms, 3) Stress Management, 4) Improving Sleep, 5) Pain and Depression, 6) Grief and Acceptance.  The information covered in this course complements the medical, physical, and psychological treatment provided at our clinic.

We believe there is still a benefit of attending the classes in person (e.g., question and answer time, more personalized flavor, interaction with other patients), and we'll continue to offer the 11:00 am live classes as usual (see the "Monday Pain Class Schedule" link in the left navigation menu or click here). 

But, we also recognize that discomfort, travel distance, fuel prices, work and family schedules, etc., don't always make it easy to attend these classes in person.  So, we have had our classes professionally recorded (thanks, Vulcan Media!) and are offering them for purchase and home use.  You can watch these in the comfort of your own home and invite your family members to learn with you.  If you choose the DVD option, we will ask you to fill out some brief quiz questions to bring back with you to your next appointment. 

The price for our own clinic patients and individual community members is the same for the "live" or DVD versions-- $35 per class/DVD.  (For professional/medical clinic pricing options, please click here).  Discuss with your clinic physician and psychologist which of the topics are considered "mandatory" for your needs and which are optional. 

To preview short clips of these videos, to see our full length video discussing our Medical Clinic Agreement, and to find out more information, please click here

Purchase is currently available in person at the clinic only, so please see our front desk at your next clinic visit.  Or call Dr. Cianfrini at (205) 982-3596 with questions.  Thanks, and....happy viewing!
