This is just a rant:
Whenever I have a perscription that needs to be called in, I always have to stay on my doctor to call it in. Sometimes it takes a week or more. I was to have a perscription filled a couple weeks ago and he didn't get to it til a week later! Everytime his nurse practitioner saw me she was like I still need to call in your perscription, finally they did, and then just this past week he put me on renvella, but still hasn't called it in after reminding his office twice! Then people wonder why people get their perscriptions off the street anymore, it's like doctors like this! Any advice on how to fix this problem? Whenever I see him in person he can't give me a perscription because he claims he's always out of pads so he and his nurse have to call them in.

sounds like you need to get another doc to fill your meds
for the one you have now doesnt seem to care of crap

i get my meds through davita pharmacy
care-mark
and the local pharmacy here in town

i dont really need to deal with my doc asking for refills
for the pharmcy does that for me

Yep, I handle my own refills, it's just when I'm out or starting a new one that I need it to be called in.
