I don't know if anyone has experienced a situation such as this. I wasn't sure where to put this post so I am posting it under prayer requests. I had to change physicians due to my long time doctor's office did not participate in my new medical insurance plan. I was with this particular office for 20 plus years of my life and having to start over with a new doctor much younger than myself and not knowing the real me other than what questions I had to answer on their forms has been difficult. Trust is hard to build especially when it comes to your health care. I wished, my long time physician took this plan, but things don't always work out the way we want them to. This NEW physician apparently refuses to speak to her patients when they call her office. This was a first for me, I've always had access to all my physicians, either by leaving a message and the physician returned my call. I do have multiple medical issues and this doctor was fully aware of them. She requested that I seek out two other doctors to address my needs. I had been unable to locate physicians within my particular plan and needed two prescriptions refilled. This physician NEVER instructed me at my last visit that she WOULD NOT refill any scripts for me if I didn't find two other doctors. I had "ALWAYS" received the same medications from my prior Primary Care Physician with no problems. Long story short...this New physicians office had a non medical person call me back, yell at me stating I FAILED to find a doctor for this, I failed to find a doctor for that when I always had the medication prescribed by my former Internist prior to this doctor. I was being "BLAMED" for not getting these specialists to prescribe medications that any doctor could and have filled for decades! I was insulted and felt the behavior of staff and the refusal of this physician to NOT talk to me directly inappropriate. Has anyone experienced bad treatment from a doctors office and the refusal of the doctor to talk to you? I ask for prayers in finding a NEW physician that will listen to me, talk to me and act in a professional manner. I was so upset and angry earlier yesterday afternoon when I found out that "according" to them. It's all my fault. Had the doctor told me she didn't want to treat me during my last visit, I would have searched for someone who would treat my illnesses. I ask for PRAYERS that I will be able to find a new physician that will help me instead of hurt me more. I feel like their office and the physician owes me an apology for their behavior. I didn't know where to post this, but so needed to talk about my experience. What would you do? It's hard to forgive those that blame you and tell you that I was the ONE who failed!!! Thank you~~~
