thank all of you so much for your responses. It is all that I needed. I am going to see if I can get a copy of the original prescriptions signed by the doctor but written out by his staff. and will try to compare it to the note I gave them when I went in before. I am going to pretend that I am there for refills, until I get in the doctor's exam room and I am talking to him. I want him to see for himself how they messed up my meds.
Also about CVS. they do have this auto refill thing and they do call the doctor when it is needed. His office staff ignores CVS also. CVS sent a fax that was a form that the staff needed to fill out, and get the doctor to sign it, and fax it to silver script. Silver script told me that the prescription for Nexium woud be probably be approved if the doctor sent in the fax. he never sent it. i doubt if he ever saw it.
An intern that used to be one of Aganobi's office staff was a patient when I was the other day. I asked her who fills out the forms to get prior authorization from Silver script for Nexium. She said that no one in the office does this.
part of the reason that i hesitate to confront the staff and the doctor is because it is so easy to get prescriptions from him. the easy ones like doxepin and arthrotec, and some other meds.
But I am going now to make a list of the new prescriptions and compare them to all the meds in my cabinet just in case they threw my note away. and Monday I will be at his office with my little note again listing all the meds that I take and need refills for. once I get him out of the way, then I can concentrate on the questions I need to ask the rheumy on the 23rd.
all I needed was all of you supporting me so strongly.
The internist who was a patient when I was, also told me that my doctor was easy to work for, but he would get very angry at anyone who messed up someone's medicine. so apparently this has happened before. and knowing he will be angry is a plus for me.
thanks again yall. you really provided all that I needed to make this decision to see him Monday, if he is open Monday. If it isn't a holiday he will be open. Shoot I could have went today. He is also open on Saturdays. I need time though to prepare my note that I will take with me, and compare it to the note that I wrote the last time. and he closes around 12 or 1 on Saturday. But Monday definitely. Will let you know the results.
