Too Weak To See Doctor

Too Weak To See Doctor

Has anyone been to weak to go see their doctor in person? My doctor told me that since it's been a year since he's seen me that he couldn't fill anymore prescriptions and I'm afraid I'm too weak to make it in and I'm not sure what to do. Would this have something to do with Medicare?

I am fortunate. My Drs PA comes and sees me every month at my home. You should ask if they have one that could come to you!! I truly hope it works out good for you.. I also wouldnt go to the clinc where my Dr is - becausevCovid- scares -me. I talked to the Social Worker about things and like i said she comes to my home! See if they have a social worker that can help you get what you need- Best of Luck! Take care!

LaVernHarvey. I guess you can’t do a virtual appointment or can you ? Someone told me that Dr’s need to see patients once a year before the can prescribe medication. My Dr’s do that. Maybe someone here can verify that, Hmmmmm.❤️ I wonder if there if there is another way to get around that if you can’t get to the Dr’s?.??? Good luck Sweetie.❤️❤️❤️🙏

P.S. I think the requirement to see you is more and FDA issue due to the drugs involved. I agree with Sheila about a home health nurse. Best wishes.

Hi Barbara. I had to get a referral to the PH specialist I see now too. I think this doctor is so specialized and so busy that she doesn't have time to see new patients that haven't already been screened and tested for PH. I hope you get into a really good doctor. Hugs

about referrels from aa doctor
My doctors nurse just called me back and seemed amazd that I wanted to see another doctor at another facility but I am sure the doctor I was leaving did not want to have to hear one more complaint from me
Maybe he will think twice before he talks to another patient like he talked to me
Why in the world another doctor needs a referral when the ins\surane i have does not require a referral I have no idea
