Has Anyone Ever Had A Doctor Tell Them NO?

Has Anyone Ever Had A Doctor Tell Them NO?

I called my doctor for a refill on prescription. No call back. 30 minutes before close I called again.
Next day (yesterday) I messaged the doctors if I could please get a refill to my med. I only got 2 days left.
She called today. Said no refills.

Randy's right. It was a year ago that You had a script from Your Doctor last? Now a year later You finally ask for a refill??? That's why Your Doctor said NO... You would have been needed refills sooner not a year later

If you can’t get to your Doctor very soon you need to find one who can and get this straightened out. Get your life back on track.

I don t think that’s legal , for patients with disorders, and diseases. At least not until we have the apt with the doctor and discuss about your med changes. If it is legal, then they need to make it into a law..

You may have a better chance getting a hold of the Epilepsy Foundation or a Disability lawyer in your state. Find out if your Dr. Can do that.
