Petition Background

The Arkansas Medical Board is attacking Doctors for Doing There Job and Treating People with Pain. The doctors are emergency suspended if they refuse to abandoned treatment of chronic pain patients. The patients are left with no medical care in life threatening situations by the medical board actions and no options to continue treatment with the few doctors left having long waiting lists and no medical records or referral after their longtime general practice doctor has been attacked and shut down. Chronic Pain is a disease and the Rights of these Patients need to be Protected as the rights of every citizens to be treated for pain as determined by medical doctors not the DEA and government entities. The government needs to acknowledge the epidemic that has been created by the war on doctors and enact emergency protection for the patients and doctors until an independent review can be conducted and a system to protect patients with chronic pain from being denied life saving treatment. If medical records support the need for narcotic pain medication, doctors should be not only allowed but required to provide it without fear of prosecution.
