Hello, from nini53 (aka Kathy), the last 3 pm doctors I have been to in the last 5 years all have lengthy contracts you have to sign before they would consider taking you on as a patient.
Like you and SE I had no problem signing the contracts. I want to give a short explanation on why there are 3.
The one clinic I went to I loved, these are doctors that stopped my right leg from feeling like it was on fire. After a little over a year they moved to a place where there is no public transportation. Second one, well let me just say we had issues. The first time I went there, all was fine, after about 4-5 months of going they told they would not prescripe methadone anymore. Well ok, what u gonna do. I was with them approx 1 year when I had to take my grandson with me (I cant remember why, doesnt matter) my children and grandchildren are black. I am white. There entire attitude changed from that day on.
I was with them 3 more months, (enough time for them to give me a very expensive test) when they dropped me, saying I had been doctor shopping. I will swear on my childrens lives, I never did, I asked them for proof of this doctor shopping I was supposed to have done. They gave me no proof, I knew what the deal was, I was given a months worth of meds, and told not to come back.
Now as much as I would have liked to drag them through court, I had to find a doctor, and how do I prove racisim?
The pm doctor I have now is great, I got no bad vibes when I took my grandchildren in on my second visit,
by this time I was paranoid.
I have now gone on to a different subject havent I, sorry, anyway I did sign a very long contract with this doctor concerning UA, not coming in early for scripts. I realize these doctors have to cover there, well you know. So I had no problem signing, its good for both patient and doctor.
Sorry again about rambling on about another subject, I do that sometime, hope you are feeling well and keep that appt. that gives you credibility, which unfortunately cp patients have to have.
