Pain Management Clinics

On August 2, 2011, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners approved an ordinance mandating the registration of Pain Clinics and Pain Management Clinics as defined by Florida Statutes. Since that time, the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER) has been developing a database and registration procedures to ensure a smooth implementation. Additionally, a Pain Clinic Task Force has been convened to study several issues surrounding the program.

The registration process requires proof of various federal, state and local licenses for the clinic and all physicians working with the clinic; designation of a responsible licensed physician; ownership information; listing of all employees; ownership interests in other clinics or pharmacies; all physicians that own or are associated with the clinic will require a criminal background check and have to complete a registration affidavit; and various other information.

For more information, call 786-469-2300.
