So I went to dr yesterday... He wa running over an hour behind!
I had a vet apt so couldn't wait very long, so I asked if I could reschedule, but today is my fill date and I was out. They rescheduled me for Monday.I asked if he would write my script for the days until my new apt Monday.

After waiting 20 min, the nurse comes out and takes me back. She said dr will write your script if you do a UA now. So, of course I did, nothing to hide.
She gave me the script and it was for a full month! I was shocked!
So, I didn't get to talk to him about how the meds are not working well, but guess that's my luck. At lease I don't have to go without. I will keep my apt Monday and just talk to him about it then.
Thanks!

     Morning Donna!
 
          I guess those things happen...but not sure why you were shocked about the full months script. Hopefully he will make an adjustment for you on Monday. I too have had a random UA..and like you no problems...plus when you pass it...they are more likely to support you when adjustments are needed in the future.
 
   The UA's are going to be more and more common place around the country..so we may as well get used to it.
 
      Take care,

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.

Well, a little background about how I am with my dr now...
He is just my regular GP dr.

I have been with him for 20 years. He referee me to a spine specialist. He preformed my surgery and stayed with him for my meds for about 6 months. He the referee me to a PM. Went to the PM for about 6 months. Well, 3months in, I lost my insurance... So the next 3months were cash appointments. He charges $120 each visit, then my meds of $112 on top of that.

So I called up my spine dr and he started seeing me again...(they bill later and I can do a payment plan). So after seeing him for a couple months he talked with my original GP and they decided he would handle my meds from now on.... So.... I am back with my GP dr. And yes, I signed a contract with him too.oh well.
Lol, what a mess...
