Mentee Feedback

I wanted to compliment the staff at Columbia and specifically Dr. Bisaga who is my Mentor. I sent an email to him with a question…and within four hours I had not only his response but the input of four of his peers. This is a great service for those of us who are stretching the edges of what we would otherwise consider ‘comfortable.’ – William Roberts, MD, Medical Director, Northwestern Medical Center Comprehensive Pain Management

This is not a program to offer medical advice about specific patients. Rather, this program is designed for experts to offer general information to clinicians about evidence-based clinical practices in prescribing medications for opioid addiction. This resource program is one component of a large program of education and mentoring services for providers.
