Walgreen Hoboken NJ Pharmacist Interferes in Patient Doctor Relationship Hoboken New Jersey
I got a call from my doctor asking what had happened to my perscription she had written on my last visit because she had received a call from the Walgreens Hoboken pharmacist that I needed another script written.
Back up a few days and I had visited that store but prsented an outdated perscription so I had to get the current one from home. I have two walgreens near me and went to the second one to have it filled with the proper dated script.
I called the pharmacist to find out why she had called me doctor and mentioned my concern that she could interfere in my care by asking for a perscription for aa controlled substance for which I had already filled. The filled perscription information is available withn the Walgreens system and available to the dctor also. By calling my doctor for a new script she could have introduced doubt to my compliance in the controlled substance drug usage and thereby the trust in the doctor patient relationship.
I asked her for an explanation and she said well your perscription had an old date and she was calling for a new one. I asked her to cease this behavior and questioned whether did she realized that the perscription had been filled and that "druggies" often try every angle to get scripts filled and that could compromise my physician relationship.
She said she was "only" trying to help. Professionals should kmow a alot better particularly when a controlled substance is involved. This pharmacist also hapened to be the store pharmacy mamager. I am concerned that is trying to sell my drugs and remain the company's financial position that Walgreens is harming patients.
I write this in hopes that enough info can be collected to make Walgreens responsible for it's systemically poor business and medical practices.
