Investigators from the Drug Enforcement Administration were collecting evidence Wednesday at an Omaha pain management clinic, a DEA spokeswoman said.
Spokeswoman Emily Murray confirmed that investigators were at the Medical Pain Relief Clinic, 13911 Gold Circle Drive. Murray said she could not comment on an active investigation.
According to the clinic’s website, the business is owned by Dr. Jeffrey L. Edwards. No one answered the clinic’s phone Wednesday afternoon, and a message seeking comment was not immediately returned.
The clinic was established in 1993, according to the website, and specializes in treating patients who have not had success with conventional treatments. Chronic pain “can be lessened through an organized approach addressing the physical and psychological components of the experience,” according to information posted about clinic services.
A second clinic location in Fremont has closed, according to the website.
