URINE DRUG SCREEN


All patients must complete a drug screen before they are seen by Dr. Berkowitz.  Drug screens are used for several reasons:

  • To monitor the types of medications our patients are taking (Combining certain medications  can cause dangerous health complications)

  • To assess compliance with our treatment regimen

  • To ensure that patients are not using the medications for illegal purposes

 

GROUNDS FOR DISMISSAL FROM OUR OFFICE

Patients may be dismissed from our office for the following reasons:

  • Absence of medication prescribed by Dr. Berkowitz
  • Medication or illegal substances not prescribed by another doctor (our office requires documentation from that doctor of the medications prescribed)

**We DO NOT submit these drug screens to any government institutions.**

**This are solely for our practice's internal purposes.** 

**We do not test for Marijuana.**

IMPORTANT NOTICE!

**Patients who are unable to urinate will experience a delay to see the doctor. You will have to take an oral swab test and will be charged $20 for the staff to perform this test.**
