At my regular checkup at my PMD(pain management doctor) for my refill of pain meds.Take them to the one and only Walgreens I have used for the last six years with the same Rx meds. A Temp pharmacist filling in refused to fill one of my pain med rx's because she felt the amount was excessive(120 pills) for my Dx.(which is terminal).
I asked her to call my Dr. "No", she said and walked away saying it's Walgreens "good faith policy". I asked to see this policy and wanted to know what grounds this pharmacist had but I was told,Walgreens company policy that the pharmacist does not have to say. She red flagged me in the computer system as well.
I am a 62 y/o terminally ill patient seen at Moffitt Cancer Center. Back in 2000 I was given the choice to go to pain management or get my meds at the Center. I went to Pain Management. Back then I had no problem(getting my meds) and used a different Walgreens.
I have been a Walgreens customer over 25 years! As a disabled person I am filing a complaint against this pharmacist and the Walgreens with the ADA. I have never had an early refill, the dog never ate my meds, they never fell down the toilet-nothing like I have heard yet I was treated like a street junkie and that *** visiting pharmacist even wrote I had drug seeking behavior in the computer. For asking a legitimate question?
For asking why they wont fill my Rx? That is drug seeking? I was very polite,never raised my voice-WTF Walgreens?
I am from Tampa and the pharmacy is located on Dale Mabry!Why are these pharmacists allowed to make diagnosis's,refuse to call a legitimate doctor,file false statements in a state wide computer system-without ANY repercussions? For those living in Florida please see the page Fight for Florida Pain Care Action Network on FaceBook for help,filing forms or general support.
Product or Service Mentioned: Walgreens Pills.
Reason of review: refused to fill legitimate Rx.
Preferred solution: Allow my Pain Management Dr. prescribe 120 pills on a certain pain med when needed and not make me jump through hoops and make my PMD write long notes to the pharmacist!.
