I know I don't have as much to complain about as some of you who have bigger problems dealing with a PM Dr. My PM Dr. believes my pain and has provided me with proper treatment. But the office staff is so unorganized that it drives me insane! ~X( If they aren't screwing up my appointment time, they are improperly denying my refill requests, taking up to 4 days to fill them, etc. Even my husband who is really very mild mannered is about ready to go to their office and give them a talking to.
) (I told him that wouldn't help.) I have to call my pharmacy to fax in a refill request for every single fill (even the non-narcotics). So, they notified the pharmacy that I needed to call them because my tramadol was denied. Of course when I call they have no clue why it was denied and I have to wait for someone to call me back. (Even the person on the phone said, "This is such a mess! I don't blame you for being upset." If there was an issue, why didn't they just call me in the first place??? They have told me that someone will call me back today but I really doubt it. I have never had this many issues with a PM office.
I am so glad that I am having my fusion soon so I hopefully won't have to deal with these people any more. If I do need pain meds after my neuro releases me I am going to see if my old PM Dr. would take me back. (He orignally referred me to this other PM who does more procedures since he couldn't do anything more for me.)
Sorry for the rant. It is over now.
