Tuesday morning, 2:18 a.m.

"Hi, can someone call me back? I saw you in 2005, but changed to another doc because I didn't like you. Anyway, that doc just moved away, and I'm out of Vicoden. Can you please call some in for me until I can find another neurologist?"

Uh, NO!

"Yeah, and I'd also like a pony, no, make that a unicorn, and if you have a spare million dollars lying around could I borrow that? No? How about just some crack, then?"

um...no. Digging yourself deeper in the hole with each passing sentence...amazing.

DataGirl said...

LOL - seems like many patients tell you that they don't like you (I have noted this trend in your postings) - maybe it's a neurological thing... :)

WHAT IS REALLY SAD =

MOST PEOPLE THINK A REQUEST LIKE HIS/ THIS IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE REQUEST/BEHAVIOR.

but they said "please"

One of my favorites was when a patient called and woke us up around 3 a.m. to tell the doc (my husband) that she couldn't sleep...

@Anon 09:58: Please remove your caps lock. Your shouting is hurting my eyes!

Did you get right on it?

lbparker said...

Did the person "not like you" because you wouldn't give unlimited Vicoden?

Yes, definitely refer to Dr. Worthless.

As Mitt Romney's staffer would say,...

Right after I check your name on the loser data base, then refer to Dr. Worthless along with printout of page.

You're welcome.

I'm with Moose...can I get a unicorn too???? How about some vicodin for my unicorn then?

Maybe Mitt's staffer might ask my unicorn to kiss his, well you know.

"The feeling was mutual and no, I can't."

Eileen said...

Hmmm...so I assume you got right on that, correct? LOL

The question is, did he/she call you back?

ROFLMAO!

Grumpy:

I'm having visions of working in a pain rehab clinic again...Our doc got weirdo calls like this all the time.

My favorite was the guy who was held up and they only stole some of his narcs from his car in Montana.

We made him get a police report. He didn't want to because it was "in a little bitty town" (which set up lots of red flags for the doc) but our security guys got the police in Middle of Nowhere, MT to give him a report (he did actully file one).

He got a script, but not the one he wanted. Never tried that one again while I was there...

To be fair, she's clearly not overdoing the pain meds if she waited 7 years to request a refill. lol

(I would like a dog the SIZE of a pony, please)

So.. it makes a person wonder at the degree of 'desperation' for someone to wrack their brains in coming up with Dr. G's name and phone number after so many years.

Val said...

What a flatterer! ;)

A young grumpy pharmacist almost fell out of his chair reading that. That is far more splendid than any voicemail than we've ever got, and we get some good ones. That's a message you dont delete, then when you're having a bad day, you listen to it, and have yourself a chuckle.
