I have a real good relationship with my endo’s physician’s assistant. She gets it that I only want to see them twice a year and that I pretty much have total control of what I do. I do the standard bloodwork, eye test, urinalysis, etc etc and so far, fingers crossed all is good.
My endo will not fill an RX unless you go see him so anything in between these visits is flatly denied.
I called his assistant this week to send me a letter to bring with me incase I get stopped at the airport with my supplies and I also asked for 2 vials of lantus as my pump’s warranty is expired and I am nervous it will die.
Office girl called back days later and said they would mail me (I asked for faxed) me a letter and that I need to call the pharmacy and have the pharmacy write an RX and fax to them to sign, yada, yada, yada.
Today I get a call, because now I think endo is involved, and he won’t fill the order until I call and chat about this lantus, so I am sure he did not get the full message and I bet he does not have it anywhere written that I use to be on lantus.
Should not be this hard, my regular MD fills anything I ask for, but she won’t follow my D any longer since I went on pump, oy vey.
