Yes I am really that freaking mad right now...

Ok So last Thursday I called the doctor. He is a ENT doctor. I have an ear infection. I went to him in January. I told them I don't have the money to come in right now, but I really needed some antibiotics. I did not ask for pain meds.. The lady that works in the front told me she would talk to the nurse and they would call me back. This was around 10 or so. I waited until after 3 for them to call back. I called them. The lady then told me that they did not call me anything in and the nurse did not put anything in my file and the nurse was gone... Great..

I called back Friday morning a little after 9. The lady told me this time that I should have had a refill on my last prescription and to just call the pharmacy and get it refilled. If it did not have a refill to have the pharamcy fax them over an order. So that is what I did. I called the pharmacy. Well the did end up having to fax them over an order. 

Soon as I got off the phone with the pharmacy I called the dr's office back and let them know. The lady put me on hold to check the faxes. She came back and said that she would have the nurse look at it. 

Well I didn't have time to call the pharmacy Saturday or Sunday. So I called them today. STILL NOTHING!!! 

So I called the doctor's office... They are now telling me that since it seems to be a re-accuring problem (July of 2011, Jan of 2013, and now)... That the doctor will want to see me.

I explained to them what I was told last week... She asked if the pharmacy faxed anything over. I told her yes. So Now I am waiting for them to call me back letting me know that they found the damn fax and are going to call the pharmacy..

If they don't call back soon, I am going to call them. If they are not going to refill the antibiotics, I am going to go to a different doctor and actually be seen... 

It is not like I am trying to get pain pills... I just want some damn antibiotics...

I have never heard of a doc office giving any kind of drugs without seeing the patient.

I hope so too. If the lady in the office would have been paying attention to the faxes cominh in, this could have been done last Thursday. I even called to tell that the pharmacy was faxing it over soon as I got odd the phone with them...
