I just came from my pain management doctor. He said it stands for Prescription Monitoring Program, which is a computer database that can see where all of the narcotic prescriptions you have filled in the past few yrs, to make sure you aren't filling prescriptions at different pharmacies.
Your primary doctor is called your "PCP" (Primary Care Physician) sometimes also referred to as a GP (general practitioner).

My girl works in a doctors office and said the letters PMP in her experience are short for "primary medical provider"
Give it to me in the sentence Michelle. PMH is usually past medical history and there are others. I cant think of what PMP refers to off hand but if you can use it in context for me I can probably figure it out. It might be past menstrual period? I need the context to be sure. there are many medical acronyms.
