My husband goes to a PM Dr. The Dr. is great but his office is terrible. The PA has called the parmacy and told them some things that - to us - are embarrassing. Like saying that he was "pissed off" because we are using two parmacies (?). Sometimes the pharmacies around here will be out of my husbands meds (oxycodin). My husband signed a paper saying alot of things, like that he would notify dr. if another dr. wrote him any pain meds and things like that but never that two different pharmacies could not be used. Well, we had a meeting with the Dr. to discuss this because we had never been anything but nice to his office staff and this felt like someone was just trying to get back at my husband for something. Dr. said not to worry, he would speak to the staff and that he (dr) had not problems with my husband. Let me also say that he never has not passed his drug testing or ran out of meds or anything. This month I sent the rx to our mail order pharmacy to save money (this drug is costly) and when we did not get it in the time frame that seemed appropriate, I called the mail order pharmacy to see where the rx was. They said that they called the Dr.s office because they could not read his DEA number and no one would answer the question and after three days of trying, they are now sending the rx back to us. What in the world? is this normal? has someone been thru this before? Thanks


  • Traci,
    I would go into the office and speak to both the doctor and the office manager. If you know that the PA has had issues with running his/her mouth to the pharmacist and they are willing to document that, I would get that letter and bring it with me, then contact the mail order pharmacy again and ask for a document of the dates and times that they contacted your husband's PM doctors office and if they spoke to someone, who that was.......when you talk to the doctor and the office manager, take all of that with you, and ask for an explanation........and assurances that this won't happen again.
