Program Specialist

Wendy Markovich has been in practice for over 10 years working in primary care and pain management in Arizona. She grew up in Nebraska and completed her undergraduate studies at Creighton University in Omaha. She then moved to Connecticut to complete her Masters degree. She worked as a Nurse Practitioner in Connecticut for a few years before she moved to Arizona. In Arizona, she learned it was one of the only states at that time to allow independent practice for Nurse Practitioners. She decided to open her own pain management practice and was successful for 9 years treating patients with chronic painful diagnoses and managing long term medications. She also had a primary care practice focusing on wellness and weight loss management in addition to common illnesses such as leaky gut, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. She decided to sell her practices after having her first child in 2016. Soon after, she started working in telemedicine which allowed her the time to spend at home with her family.

Wendy is currently welcoming new patients for her Arizona Medication Compliance Program. The program is designed to promote safety and best practices when prescribing opioids for chronic pain in Arizona. The program will assist patients to safely taper their opioid doses in a realistic time frame. The goal is to create achievable outcomes and show continued improvement each visit while maintaining medication compliance and improving overall health and well being.

About OnCall Pain's

Medication Compliance Program

OnCall has developed a medication compliance program for patients that are in chronic pain. This program is designed to assist patients in developing a treatment plan that is compliant with the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act while managing their painful issues. Each treatment plan is unique to the individual and may include safely tapering medication in a manageable time frame or maintaining medication doses. The goal is to achieve a treatment plan that gives the patient the best quality of life and allows them to be as active as possible while being monitored and followed in a comprehensive pain management program.

This program is not only medication management. The program is designed to help patients be the best they can be with overall health and wellness. Encouragement is given to treat and manage other diagnoses such as diabetes, thyroid disorder, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and any other health issues the patient may also have. Working with the patients’ other health care providers creates a teamwork approach and encourages the patient to participate in their care.

In addition to the chronic pain treatment plan and working with other healthcare providers, each visit the patient receives an education piece and homework assignment which is designed to educate and improve overall health and wellbeing. This may be something as basic as water intake needs to more complex issues such as stress. The daily lifestyle of each patient can dramatically affect pain. Working closely with patients and requiring participation in the program and in their care is essential to having a successful treatment plan.
