Finally after another 10 minutes, the NP came in. Not really too concerned with my blood pressure or meds, she told me of all of the blood tests, stool tests, etc. that I needed because of my age. When I mentioned a problem with sciatica, she said, "Legs up and take Aleve." I knew that. Duh! Then she asked if a one month supply of my blood pressure meds would do. When I said that wasn't good since we were going on vacation and couldn't she do longer than that. She said, "Three months, or are you going to be gone longer than that?" I don't make a habit of telling lies to medical professionals, so I said, "Three months is fine. At the end of that time, may I call in for a prescription renewal?" Luckily she said, "Yes." ( and that costs $50.00 before even visiting the pharmacy!).
And I had to ask both the doctor's receptionist and the pharmacy a couple of times before I got the correct receipts/papers for my insurance company. Don't get sick here. Who knows how long you will have to wait! Bring on the socialized medicine!
