Question for the Cimzia people out there... Do you know the name of the nursing company who sends someone do to your shots? My person just no-showed. It's not the first time I've had problems with this arrangement and I plan to call tomorrow (the "Cimplicity" program) and complain about the way it's all handled. They call it Cimplicity but if I didn't harrass people (ship the meds, sit home all day to sign for it, call the nurse, etc, etc.) I'd never get treated. Even when I spend an hour calling and arranging and waiting at home for delivery, I still don't get treatment!
Sorry, just irritated now. If I could schedule a doc appt and have the med delivered there it really would be simple!
Anyway, I'm wondering if the Cimzia people always use the same home healthcare nursing staff company.
