I am a diabetic of 47 years. AIC of 6.4 and I use an insulin pump.
I haven’t seen my diabetic doctor in a year. Recently I went to get my insulin presription refileld and the pharmacist siad, your Docto will not refill this prescrption because he said you are no longer his patient. What?
I called the Doctors office and they said because you haven’t been here in a year you’ll now need to be referred in by your primary care Doctor. I said, you are my primary care doctor. They said that isn’t how it works. Go Figure!
I said look I m running out of insulin and need a prescription called in. They said we can’t until your referred to us then we have to see you before we can fill a prescription.
I said, your not hearing me, I am out of insulin, you were my Doctor until you decided to drop me. Now you want me to get a referral to come back and see you and in the meantime you won’t fill my prescription for insulin.
The nurse said "Dear, this is how we do things and you’ll just have to find a referring Doctor. Go Figure
My Doctor is Dr Daulphin Paschall at the Metabolic group and I intend on raising absolute heell with this attitude, the lack of concern for the patient and no comprehension as to the seriousness of my circumstances.
Anyone else every run into this??
Caught in the middle of stinking thinking from the neck up!
