we moved to a new city in the same state a little over two years ago. I recently am baffled by the gyno office. Right away I noticed oddities with doctors and prescription refills. I am taking a wild guess, but perhaps it’s because there are a lot of tourists here. But then again, if you see the doctor for a year or more and have a local address...I think you should be considered an established local patient. My gp would never do refills over the phone. Under any circumstances.You always had to come in. She switched to concierge. I pay a yearly fee. Of course, now it’s suddenly the opposite and she will do refills over the phone for most things. I have more to say about this, but...I wish to talk about my main reason for the post...the recent gyno situation. So we went out of town for Christmas and then I was sick with fever and a super bad cold. I didn’t realize my HRT had run out of refills. I have a Biest/estrogen cream and a Progesterone tablet.Both low dose. I had two days left and called for a refill. By a stroke of luck I called the pharmacist and he said it was denied as the doctor office said I had no refills and I had to come in. I called the gyno office and I said that I messed up, could I see the doctor at her next available appointment and get a month’s Worth of medicine. This is SUPER customary where I use to live. Now, it’s not for abuse. But if you are an established patient and simply made a mistake or there is some unusual circumstance, you can easily get a one month refill and come in ASAP. Bottom line...they turned me down flat. The dr’s next appointment was Feb 11 which I took. They said I would have to go without hrt until then. They were fine with me suddenly going without the Hrt for one month. WTH. So, as nice as I could, I told the person on the phone that this simply was unacceptable. They got me in with the assistant that day and phoned in two months of the script. Now they are saying I must get a mammogram within two months. Here’s the kicker...I had no blood test and they did not order one. They originally wanted me to do a pap, but when they found out my insurance might not cover it...they didn’t care if I got one or not..it was up to me. So coming in was just a formality. No true medical reason for me to come in. What do other doctor offices do if you are late coming in and need a refill? Like I said, my previous city ...the doctors there would give you one month of medications and then you would take an appointment with the doctor ASAP. They tried to help you not suddenly go without medication. I’m kicking around checking out another gyno. As a side note...two neighbors hate this gyno and her staff but they wouldn’t tell me why. I find it all sooo weird. Possibly a ploy to make money with extra appointments. I know many wondered about this with the GP. Just weird.very unaccommodating. Bordering on dangerous. Thoughts?
