    I always waited an hr. When I saw him the 2nd time he asked if I was a clinical trial?! He didn't listen to me when I told him I have a history of AI chronic pancreatitis and I need to go slow on meds. Well, he prescribed my high doses of meds, which in 3 days caused pancreatitis. I saw my GP & she stopped it,started on low dose meds.I made a F/U appt with the PA & said the dose was too high/started new meds. I saw her a month later & told her the fatigue is uncontrollable causing tachycardia.
