Ms. Martinez: I suppose so.
Physician: OK – the nurse will give you more information about it.
Ms. Martinez: OK.
Physician: You say you haven’t shown signs of withdrawal before, but if you have difficulty with tremors when you’re quitting this time, come in or call right away.
Ms. Martinez: I definitely will.
Physician: I’ll introduce you to Michelle.
Ms. Martinez: OK. Thanks.
Physician: This is my nurse Michelle. This is Theresa. I just wrote her a prescription and we need to start a medication management program. I’d like for you to see her next week and the week after. Then I’d like to see you back here in 4 weeks to check on your progress. Good luck.
Nurse: Please come with me.
