I had a new pharmacist like that once. I was a long time, many script a month customer for at least 10 years, until they hired a brandy new just graduated pharmacy school pharmacist, who decided that she would NOT fill my oxycontin at that time. In fact, surprisingly, every single time she was on duty, the pharmacy would mysteriously be out of oxycontin and they "had to order it"....despite my calling the night before I knew that I would need to get a new script from my doctor, and they had it in , just waiting for me to come in the next day.....seems that this particular pharmacist didn't like oxycontin, and I had been on it for over a year by that point.
I pointed out to her, that I had never gotten or requested an early fill, never claimed to have lost any of the script, never did anything that I was not supposed to do, and that she could very well see that I filled on the same date ( nearly give or take a day) each month...
I went to her supervisor who told me that she had the "right" to refuse to fill a script.....for any reason, in fact didn't have to have a reason....I promptly informed the pharmacy manager that I would take mine, my husband's and four childrens scripts elsewhere from that point on.
I contacted the main office of the company and got a similar reply....in fact, my doctor's office now tells it's patients NOT to go to this pharmacy, which has AID as it's last name......

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
