Chronic pain (CP) patients account for 10–40% of those coming to the emergency room (ER) [  ]. Emergency physicians are focused on emergency-level treatment and have little training in the management of CP. It is therefore necessary for emergency physicians to recognize CP and provide an appropriate response when it is the reason for admission [  ]. The most commonly discussed issues in the literature regarding CP patients in the ER are waiting times and patient satisfaction, barriers to accessing care, and strategies for improving care [  ]. This study was performed to compare levels of satisfaction between CP and non-CP patients on discharge from the ER.
