I have a monthly prescription for tramadol 100mg 3 times/day that I have to go to this specific walgreens on brookhurst because no one else carries that strength. My surgery had problems so the doctor on call at my dr's location called in a perscription for 12 tablets on thursday for me to pick up sunday july 17th to get me through until july 21st for my normal prescription that also has this dr's name, so marjorie & then liz who refused to give me her last name, said she didn't feel comfortable filling that prescription because "it was too early for my prescription, it can be released on july 20". So liz & walgreens never flagged this prescript last week when it was put in & she offered to fax it today which no one is in the dr's office sunday! Liz wants the dr to give me a prescription for a different pain med or a different milligram because she can't figure out that a prescription for 12 tabs is a separate prescription! So she is over riding my prescription based not on a law she said but based on her feeling uncomfortable! So she's saying in fact that the dr on call last week at my dr's office doesn't know how to write s prescription! Are you kidding?! So nothing flagged it in the walmart pharmacy computer last week when it was sent by the doctor who went to medical school but liz abused her power & made that decision before liz even got on the phone! So i'm left with zero pain med until liz & walgreens can do their job & talk to the doctor mon-fri! I am pissed off & yelling at them because as the patient who didn't get my md or pharmacist certificate who had to explain, defend & forced to deal with no pain med for at least 24 hours! Why cant liz the pharmacy manager do her job & call the doctor when the prescription comes in?! Marjorie & liz are very unprofessional especially when it comes to a patient in pain & something marjorie said was a law but liz said no, it's not a law it's about her being "uncomfortable" but she is comfortable overruling an actual dr with a license at the same location as my reg pain management dr! So in fact she doesn't know my medical history but she's making a medical decision overruling a dr who knows I had my 9th back surgery & there were complications! Liz said the dr should have added it to the next prescription in july 20th so i'm going to let the dr's office know how the dr was wrong & he doesn't know how to write a partial perscription per liz! I wouldn't ever go to this walgreens again because of this but i'm stuck getting no just my pain med because of no the dosage (which liz is ok with giving me partial prescriptions almost every no month because they have to order it so there's hardly ever the full 90 tabs when I pick it up each month!)
