The Robin Hood of chronic pain patients

an exclusive interview with Dr. Mark Ibsen on the war on pain patients and the CDC's rollback of damaging recommendations on prescribing opiates


For those of you that caught my last weekend’s rant on the news of the CDC rollback of its 2016 opioid prescribing recommendations, I mentioned that we would be releasing this interview.

Today as a special feature editorial, we have an interview with a medical doctor out of Montana who has been fighting back against these mandates since 2016.

Dr. Mark Ibsen has almost lost everything in his fight to help pain patients. Now we are seeing a glimmer of hope with last week’s announcement. This episode is an informative conversation laying out the history of the situation and where we may go from here.
