Interview with Johnathan Goree, MD |
Director of Chronic Pain & Opioid Stewardship
University of Arkansas for Medical Science
I went into anesthesiology because I wanted to be the best prepared doctor for an emergency
but I moved into pain medicine because I missed the 1-on-1 patient contact and longitudinal patient care. Here are some other things that lead me into pain medicine. After getting my wisdom teeth removed, I was given too much fentanyl during the procedure resulting in being given Narcan to wake up.

I didn't know any of the other detailers before the project.
The NaRCAD training was great as an introduction to the work and to each other. We all had a sense of hope that was immediately apparent. We have the privilege of doing work that helps save lives and because of this attitude, there was a sense of camaraderie right away.
