Therapix closing pain clinic less than 1 year after acquiring it — 3 details

Brentwood, Tenn.-based Therapix Healthcare Resources is shutting down one of the eight pain clinics it acquired from Middle, Tenn.-based Comprehensive Pain Specialists, an organization that closed in July 2018 with little notice, according to the Tennessean, part of the USA Today network.

Three details:

1. Therapix's pain clinic at TriStar Hendersonville (Tenn.) Medical Center is set to close May 1, less than a year after Therapix took over.

2. Former Comprehensive Pain Specialists CEO Peter Kroll, MD, led the clinic. Federal prosecutors have accused Dr. Kroll of illegally profiting from mandatory psychiatric evaluations for CPS' chronic pain patients.

3. It is unclear whether other clinics Therapix Medical bought from CPS are at risk of closure.
