Doctor Playing Russian Roulette
I am majorly peeved over my last Doc appointment and I could choke him out.
Unfortunately, I do not have health insurance and am a self pay patient… this causes alot of financial distress as you can imagine because I must pay a small fortune each month for Doctor visits and the meds prescribed.
Well, recently, my family Doc retired and I found myself in a predicament of sorts and needed to find a new Doc. Since I pay out of pocket, I only see a regular Physician to refill my Psych and pain meds. I decided on a new Doctor, and to my dismay, he has taken the liberty of lowering the dosages of all my medications simply because they are too high in his opinion and he feels I should not be on the dosage amounts prescribed to me by my previous specialists.
I was floored to say the least, but because I could not afford another visit, I was at his mercy.
So. Next month I am off to, yet again, look for a new Doctor who will listen and not try to turn my world upside down.
Not only will I be going through some sort of withdrawal for the Psych meds, but also for my pain medication prescribed to me by a specialist.
I am beyond frustrated and plan to never return to this Doc again.
I am already feeling the affects and having withdrawal symptoms… I will keep you posted.
