Dr. Amen is Board Certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine. He completed his Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine – Tulsa Department of Internal Medicine/Addiction Medicine. As an Addiction Medicine specialist, Dr. Amen will provide state of the art, evidence-based, medication assisted therapy for opioid dependence in an office-based setting.
While the Ramos Center does not accept patients who consume high dosages of opioids into their practice, Dr. Amen will manage opioid therapy for high-risk patients suffering with chronic pain and are willing to wean down to a manageable level or cease opioid consumption completely. He will help to prevent, identify and treat opioid dependence in pain patients using a multi-factorial approach.
“Incorporating an Addiction Medicine Specialist into the Ramos Center’s multi-modality pain medicine practice further substantiates our commitment to continue to help our community beat the opioid epidemic, Dr. Fabian Ramos said.”
Dr. Amen will practice his unique specialty at all three Ramos Center locations: Bradenton (100 3rd Avenue West; Suite 110); Sarasota (2540 S. Tamiami Trail) and Venice (1370 E. Venice Avenue; Suite 104).
