I had a not so good experience at a doctors office..........The story is that I am trying to see if I can wean off some hbp medication and add natural things which seem to be working much better.......but I was going to a clinic which although cheap I wasnt too fond of it.. So I found a integrative doctor but when i started running out of medication for weaning I found out that doctor retired.. but they had another doctor to take her place.. So I took an appt. and went I went in I told this doctor what I was doing.. Now I had only a week's left to the medication and I am weaning off at my own pace and slowly because I have had some terrible side effects in which I am trying to avoid... (long story)... Now this doctor said well you have enough to just stop the medication.. I was like what?? No I was trying to explain to her nicely I am highly sensitive to this stuff and I needed more time and another prescription.. She then got very nasty and said some mean aweful things.. In the end she gave me a prescription but not the whole amount I had previously....... So I just took it and was shell shocked as how she treated me.................She also sold me some vitamin thing and I stupidly paid for it...............It is a stress anxiety calming supplement and didnt even try an figure out if it interacted with my medication so now I have to research it...................All for this abuse I paid 65.00 for the visit and 50 for the supplement..... I am 60 year old woman and have no insurance and are paying out of pocket.. The affordable care act has so many loop holes and I am not eligible for medicaid.. (another long story)
So what would you do? The clinic I was going to charged me 15.00 a visit and they are okay but I was trying to avoid them but now with limited funds I cant.....Plus I also have to pay for the medication. I would hate to start over with another doctor and pay all that money but what are the choices..??
Any ideas, suggestions????? what would you do??
