Someone please explain to my why the fuck my doctor needs to see me to be able to refill a prescription I have been taking for 7 years?!!?!? Like I have the fucking time to drive to Rochester so she can listen to my heart beat. She comes in at 10 and leaves at 3. That really gives me a lot of options, since I work until 5.

THE BITCH DOESN'T EVEN SPEAK GOOD ENGLISH!!!!

Seriously... When did it get like this? I used to be able to call my doctor in Michigan from school in New Mexico and he would send a script to the local pharmacy.

Is this just a ploy to get more money from the insurance company???


I am going to stick my face in the copy machine and fax it to her. DO YOU SEE ME NOW BITCH!

I am so pissed.

I hate how they are never on time either. My gf works at a doctor's office and they routinely schedule patients for appointments at 8:30 and the DR. doesn't show up until 11:30 or 12:00. I would go postal if that was my DR.

I have been to see this doctor at least 8 times in the past year. It's not like I never go in to see her or anything, I just don't have time right now.

Tell her you don't have phuqin time for her BS, just send the script and bill your insurance like you were there, then file for insurance fraud and find a new doctor

It's a revenue tactic. You pay $10, insurance pays the other $75-100. They get basically free money for doing what they used to do over the phone for free.

Non-Profit Insurance!! My Butt!

This is what education has done for america, lets see who can play the game better. Doctors who have gone to school for years upon years to be educated, or Insurance companies who push paperwork around to see who they can rip off next.

Our Doctor gives us big breaks on billing and give us scrips at the office. And he hates Insurance companies more then I do.

Depending on what the drug is... if you gain or lose weight this may affect the efficacy of the drug. If the drug is hormonal related the gland in question may have weakened in time and you may need a stronger prescription. There are many reasons why you should see your doctor every year.

more than likely, the insurance will not allow her to bill you/them for an office visit unless you actually go in.

my previous doctor would/could not even release the results of standard tests unless a follow up appointment was made...

as for hating the doctor - I'd suggest finding a different doctor if you dont' care for their diagnosis skill, and/or lack of bedside manner, and hate the system that the doctor is actually forced to play in/under.

Hah! Well i just switched doctors because he kind of 'scolded' me for not being sick during the year. "Well its kind of difficult when I only see you once a year" i was still seeing a pediatrician... i guess hes used to seeing kids many times a year.. ugh, but the new doctor, a WOMAN still needs to see me once a year..

If you dont like your doctor get another one. I dont settlle for any less than the best care. I learned that in the hospital. All of my doctors speak english perfectly too, I am not going to see someone I can barely understand.
