Suboxone Doctor in Miami: Dr. Mitchell’s Clinic

Why I Work On Christmas
by Dr. Robert Ben Mitchell, D.O. - 786-262-5750

One of my first years providing Medication Assisted Treatment (M.A.T.) with buprenorphine for people with opioid dependence, I took off Christmas day. My regular office hours back then were Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. That year, Christmas fell on a Monday.

The Tuesday after Christmas when I returned to my office, I had a message left early the day before from a patient needing treatment. They had wanted to be seen Christmas day, but my office was closed. Later that same week, I learned that this patient had relapsed and died on the evening of Christmas day.

The first step in getting help is showing up. The first step in providing help is showing up, too. So now, even though I only work Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, whenever Christmas falls on one of those days, like it does this year, I’m here in my office in case any patients need to be seen.
