 |  changing pcps immediately!  |  show details
by Christopher C on Apr 19th, 2014

After being a patient of Dr. Sherman's for 3 years I will promptly be changing my PCP. After losing my health insurance after being laid off several months ago I was forced to abruptly stop my depression and anxiety medications. After getting insurance back this month I discovered that my former psychiatrist no longer accepted my insurance. It is extremely difficult to be seen by psychiatrists as a new patient, most of those who accepted my insurance AND were taking new patients had several month waits for appointment... one was 3 months. I went to an er and the doctor wrote a 3 week prescription for my anti depressant and only 5 days for my anti anxiety medication as it is a controlled substance. Next I found a psychiatrist who agreed to see me two weeks later and outside of her usual hours. Today, a Saturday I was experiencing severe panic attacks and have no medication left from my er visit. I called Dr. Sherman's answering service asking for a prescription to be called in to the pharmacy just to hold me over until my psychiatrist appointment in 5 days. I did not get a call back and after placing a second call to the service I was told that Dr Sherman would not provide the prescription as he was not in the office and I would have to wait until he was on Monday. Some primary care provider. Fortunately for Dr Sherman I am not suicidal or anything, though he would have no way of knowing this as the answering service staff did not communicate the situation to him and he did not allow further explanation. The state of psychiatric service is very sad and it is hard enough for patients to access services. When a patient cannot even rely on their primary physician to help bridge that gap it further tarnishes the state of healthcare an violates the patient's trust. DO NOT SEE DR. BRADLEY SHERMAN if you need a physician you can count on to help you ensure you can receive the medical treatment you need. ESPECIALLY IF YOU SUFFER FROM ANY PSYCHIATRIC CONDITION
