Leaves patients hanging

Don't get roped in! Totally upset and disappointed that for over 10 years I have been her patient and I suppose she and her staff was tired of my visits, my prescription requests and the tedious demands of the pharmacy requirements that she decided she didn't want to renew prescriptions, or see me. I called for 3 months trying to see her and get meds and I got the run-around. The nurse starting lying saying that tri-care didn't want to fill the prescription, when I called tri-care they had no record of the Dr. Watkins office even calling. I have gone 3 months without 3 of my medications and they also will not release my records and will not answer the phone or return my phone calls. I do not deserve to be treated like this. She could have been honest enough to say we no longer want you as a patient.

Don't Care.

I was diagnosed with H Pylori, and was given something called a PrevPac. The medicine in the PrevPac (Biaxin 500mg) made me so ill I almost had to go to the emergency room. The symptoms I had was fever, rash, itching skin, severe headache, chills and pain throughout my entire body. When I reported these adverse symptoms to the advice nurse, I was not taken serious and was told Dr. Watkins would get back with me shortly. I have not heard anything from Sandra Watkins and I assume my issues are not of a serious nature (even though my heart rate doubled). This is not the only time my complaint to the advice nurse has gone on deaf ears. I have insurance and pay well for it, nor am I behind on any medical bills, I wonder why am I being treated in such a crass manner.
