Piercings if this is the first glitch you have ever run into with CP count yourself very lucky, lol. You cannot begin to imagine what some of the members have gone thru here or are still going thru in an effort to get decent care. Rant, away you have every right in the world to do so.
As PaLady said its very important that you get copies of your medical records. You cannot ever rely on a drs office to do what they say they will when it comes to paperwork. For some reason paperwork is always backburnered. It took 2 months to get 2 sheets of paper sent to a local dr here in town.
I sure would make an appt with the new PCP and explain about when your meds run out and when you see the new PM dr. I would ask that he script meds long enough in between the two appts because it is really unnecessary for you to be without. By asking for limited days worth that will show you are not in there to just get medication. I sure hope this works out for you.
I am so glad that you decided against the first idiot's office. That would have been a disaster, already was before you actually became a patient. Matter of fact, since your out of state dr furnished your records to that office I would call them and give them a three day notice that I would be by there to pick my records up. I would not leave them in that office, they are your records. But give them notice you will be coming by to pick them up.
I think you will find that sometimes traveling some distance to see a good dr is worth its weight in gold. Many of us have done that and I still do. I drive 60 miles round trip to see my gi and pulmonary dr. I did see a pain mgt dr that was the same distance. No big deal.
Take care and let us know how you are doing.
