So you all probably remember the drama of psycho neighbor. I had mentioned he and I had the same family doctor. This was my doctor for past 18 years, only doctor either kids have ever had. Anyhow, past couple years he wasn't the same with me. His lack of attention or listening to my isues with any seriousness, led me to one specialist after another, but not hte neurologist that it was suggested I see, until nearly a year after the round about of needless specialists was run out and I got kind of assertive that I had a right to choose a appointment with a neuro doctor seeing as EVERY other specialist said "you don't need me , you need the neuro". GRRR! So that delayed for ages my MS diagnosis. Since then, this doctor has at times somewhat responded to treating medical problems of mine. Mostly he's dropped the ball and I'd leave in tears. I never could understand what happened. We were compatible before this and I had respected him as a doctor. It turns out psycho neighbor was saying stuff to this doctor during HIS appointments. Not sure what exactly, but psycho thought it was hilarious that it impacted my medical treatment in the hands of the only doctor I can use. So I have been pretty upset with this doctor and avoiding seeing him. But a few weeks ago I NEEDED medications refilled and I needed an appointment. I called the receptionist and requested my medications be phoned to pharmacy for refill. After I picked them up, I called back saying that the refill for Tylenol 3, which was 2 months overdue to begin with, was not filled during the refills. She said well why do you need it now if you could go 2 months not refilling it. DOH! Because I don't go through a whole months prescription in a month if I don't NEED it at that time, and I'd been having a good spell with minimal pain, but was in a active bladder flare and my legs/feet were conking out on me and the pain was unbearable. She calls back and says she spoke with the doctor and he'll fill the script but he's not happy about it. WTH??? I have freaking MS. He wanted me on STRONGER than Tylenol! And I"m in hot water for not filling it faithfully every 30 days becuase I don't take it if I don't need it? I was annoyed. I slipped I guess. I responded "Please tell him thank you for the refill. I'm unsure what would make him unhappy about refilling a minor pain medication for a patient with a debilitating and painful disease, especially since he tried to get me on twice daily Oxycontin. Which I refused. Yet he's unhappy about Tylenol scripts?? It's not like I asked for pure heroin!". GRRR!! So I got a letter this morning. Short. It said that myself and my children were being dropped as patients for the following reasons: 1) Missing 3 appointments (dates were given, one in 2009, one in 2008 and one in 2007) 2) Being unduly rude to his receptionist O...M....G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How about being unduly rude to your PATIENT for the past several YEARS? How about stalling my treatment for MS simply becuase you heard lies from a patient you had for a few years, a known drug addict and alcoholic with active schizophrenia. How about giving the shaft past few years to myself and my kids who've been there 18 years!!!!! I honestly don't give a rats patootie about not being his patient. I don't want to see him anyhow since I know now why he changed in how he medically handled me. However, I find it beyond irony that he boots me and the kids from his caseload. The wait list is 4-6 years here for a new doctor. We have a severe doctor shortage. So that's that. No doctor to at least call in my medications. Lovely!!! I planned to have my normal MS medications refilled by phone from his office but not go in to see him in person. Now I guess I try to figure out how to get my medications. Not easy when you can't get in to a doctor. *sigh* The psycho neighbor I hope is miserable wherever he has relocated to. I hope this is the FINAL ripple effect of this psycho's actions.
