not compassionate. okay if you have no problems; had difficulty with getting medicare card and had to skip an appointment giving plenty of advance notice. then i fractured my back and needed a refill of Xanax; i spoke to the secretary about it and had pharmacy call the doctor's office as per secretary's direction. i received a very nasty call from dr. saying he doesn't care if i can't get out of bed to see him he won't renew prescription and i should get another doctor. you decide.
