Dr. Indermuhle is partnering with a new task force in Chandler and Gilbert to help curb the nation’s prescription drug abuse problem. As part of the task force, Dr. Indermuhle is educating her medical team to pay close attention when prescribing medications and helping guide patients with chronic pain to other types of resources. “One of the main points I try to impress on my patients with chronic pain is the alternatives to high dose pain medications,” says Dr. Indermuhle. “Pain medication is not the only answer to help these patients.” Call 602.406.3319 to schedule interviews with Dr. Dr. Indermuhle.
