    If a pain clinic cannot prescribe your medications because they are waiting to get certified, by law does your PCP have to prescribe you them?

    The law requires no doctor to prescribe meds to or treat a patient. In fact, they can take away their license, for prescribing pain meds to an individual without a sufficient history of treating the patient to justify the pain med prescription.

    My question to you is what are you doing at a clinic that is not certified? A doctor or physician that is *licensed* can prescribe or not prescribe medication to a patient. There is no law that makes it mandatory for a doctor or physician to prescribe medication to any patient. However, if malpractice occurs ie. misdiagnoses which caused additional injuries you may have a legal case.

    It does not matter what clinic OP goes to. What matters is that OP wants, but cannot find a way to get his/her hands on pain meds.
