I had 3 separate doctors refuse me as a new patient because of my complicated medical issues and taking morphine which I have been on 12 years. I have never been accused of abusing my meds when asked to do pee tests every test was my script meds. I have a great doctors now I see him once a month and get all meds at once. I go to a small family owned pharmacy and I get to know them Jane when I couldn’t get my script during Covid he refilled all my meds no issue.

Poodle, unfortunately it seems they are looking for any reason to kick people out. Chairs are the same in most of them. The worst part is that this mess with restricting opioids was simply "Guidelines". It is out of control.
I remember Ohio continually talking about the "opioid crisis " back in 2011. It was the beginning of their attack. Restricting was the goal. Our troops were guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan. Now china controls that too. All of the NSAIDs are now from China. Vitimins. Most foods in our stores, china and other countries. Each event. Like the "opioid crisis " (real or imagined) intentionally disrupt and divert attention away from much worse. Amazingly, they started saying it was only guidelines, not intended to be law, yet republican govts ran with it, and started saying the may have made a mistake-right after winning a 2.3 billion lawsuit against two american producers. Will that wipe out the american competition?
The money they get from the lawsuits never goes to fix the problem they claimed in the first place.
Besides, as we have seen with the prior adm, they have unlimited supply to anything they want. Even McDonnell's chinese wife is connected to the 2 shipments of man made fentanyl intercepted.
Small independent pharmacies here even the one that has 8 locations won’t fill pain meds unless you get other meds filled and my other meds are free through the mail order pharmacy so I have to go 18 mi to ask for refills then go back the next day to pick them up
Like any professional ofcourse a doctor has the right to not take you on if they feel that they will not be able to treat you. If they feel that your care is to complex for them to accurately take care of they are well within their rights to not have you as a patient.
Sadly I've had a lot of rejection on this area as I've multiple medical conditions two of them being orphan conditions that have a very narrow treatment options and don't allow for a lot of drugs to be used without triggering the condition (which can be deadly). Its made getting proper treatment hard because to many docs don't want the involved lilibility
Lemmyhellcat, they do not have to take on anyone. It is their fear. Glad you found a good one. Small pharmacies are so much better. CVS was dividing my scripts into smaller amounts. 90 day tylenol 3 they would only give me 7 days at a time. Other script, 90 days, they give me 30 at a time. Ins company said they weren't doing it and focus said they weren't either. I changed to the local small pharmacy, they deliver too.
I wish it was as easy for me as I would change it over in a minute!!! I hate all the pills and injections!!
