Hello to all,
First of all, I would like to apologize in advance for the novel below, but felt the information was important so I could get sound advise from all that reads this knowing all the facts.
I am in desperate need of advise on what to do please. I have been going to my current pain Management doctor for two years. Never had a problem until recently, received a discharge letter 4 days ago. I apparently after my appointment I did not drop off my urine. This is done on the way out, after the appointment. I got to talking as I saw another provider I had not seen in the past. I put the urine in my bag as I need a walker and totally just spaced it. The office wrote it as a refusal which of course does not look good.
There was also another incident, back in December of 2012 that I had forgotten about, until I got the discharge letter. I had asked my primary doctor for 5mg oxycodone 30 count. This is the highest he will write for. This doctor was actually the one that referred me to the pain doctor. He was extremely concerned of why I would need these. I explained that the pain management office for some reason makes follow-up appointments between 30 and 33 days, after 30 days you would of course run out of meds they could not grasp this simple concept. Anytime you tried for a earlier date they would be all booked up. They could always have an appointment for a later date if you were unhappy with what you have now.
My primary doctor pulled my prescription history and saw for himself what was going on, he wrote the script.
This is something I did not want to do,I called the pain doctors office to let them know what I had to do. The gal told me you have to do what is best for you. I do not understand why a doctor that took a oath to help people and have staff members do this to patients is barbaric. This girl has since been fired.
Unfortunately, I have on my record a refusal and getting scripts filled elsewhere. Nothing as transpired for 15 months except now that it was found and no notes from anyone except that I filled elsewhere.
Does anyone know since I have been getting scripts from this doctor for the last 15 months can they just discharge for that? I did a urine sample. Have to each month. I know I forgot it but that is not a refusal. Does the doctor have to treat until you find a new provider as it will take time with the unfavorable wording in my records. Is there a law stating the reasons a doctor can terminate your care?
Any suggestions, comments, ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.
