From patient counseling to identifying suitable patients, 3 OBGYNs share their real-world experience with ORILISSA.
To help her patients understand and accept their treatment plan with ORILISSA, Dr Jessica Shepherd feels it’s essential to include her patients in the decision-making process. By helping her patients understand why she recommends ORILISSA, how it works, and highlighting the benefits and risks, she ensures her patients leave her office feeling well informed about the treatment decision they’ve made together. But it doesn’t stop there. She guides her patients throughout the treatment process by helping them understand what to expect, scheduling follow-up appointments during their initial visit, and ensuring they have access to their medication as quickly as possible. Watch the video to learn how Dr Jessica Shepherd supports her patients from day 1.
After many years as an OBGYN, Dr Aileen Caceres has adopted a big-picture approach when identifying patients who may be right for ORILISSA. She looks at each patient's pain symptoms and how they affect day-to-day life. Does moderate to severe pain negatively affect her daily routine? Are her pain symptoms beyond mild? Dr Aileen Caceres takes that into consideration, as well as assesses what previous pain management her patients have tried, which helps in evaluating when ORILISSA is an appropriate choice. Watch to see Dr Aileen Caceres present a quick and easy way to identify who may be right for ORILISSA.
With years of real-world experience, Dr Charles Miller knows that merely pushing through pain isn’t an option for many women with moderate to severe endometriosis pain. Many of his endometriosis patients find their pain negatively affecting their day-to-day lives. Dr Charles Miller explains that he recommends ORILISSA to appropriate patients because it works differently—by dialing down estradiol levels in a dose-dependent manner—so the dose is chosen based on specific pain symptoms and severity.1 Learn about one patient Dr Charles Miller prescribed ORILISSA to, and why he often recommends this treatment in his practice.
