Thanks, yes that is process i am going through now. however i didn't have my specialist medications at the time of my visit. I got my medication list from DrJ, now have to take that list to my specialist. In some cases my specialist will not be able to change their prescription to align with DrJs prescription, i.e. DrJ will have to adjust my lyme medications.
thats where the headache comes in, since i cannot simply discuss this to a 'live' person instead have to leave voicemails, wait for call backs, then respond to my specialist, and rinse and repeat again with DrJ.
Oh, I feel your pain, believe me. That is one of their downfalls...is the Admin side of things.
I don't know why they don't fix that aspect...I even had trouble figuring out which local I should be calling...and there's that 'threating message' - "Do not leave multiple messages. Multiple messages may delay our response" (or something like that)
My appt. was on the 5th of Feb. and the med prescript
ion didn't get faxed to the pharmacy until the 12th. But, I was calling the pharmacy every day....bugging them...and I called the clinic no less than 3 times.
Then they wanted lab work to be done...but didn't send my appt. notes until almost 3 weeks later. I had wanted to take the notes to my Dr. so she was 'on board' with all the lab work I needed to have done. So she had the information that I indeed went to the clinic and was going to be taking multiple abx. and needed labs done.
So, yes...the office/Admin side of things is lacking for sure...and very frustrating.
my husband mentioned a few times that they should know better than to create stress for lyme patients.
