in Fair Lawn, NJ |
Dr. Weizman was very good on the phone while filling in for my regular doctor. He told me he would call in a prescription for hypertension to my pharmacy and I gave him the name and number of the pharmacy. Several hours later I called the pharmacy to see if they had my prescription ready. They had not received a call from the doctor. By 9:00 pm, my blood pressure was 150/105 and I had to resort to taking my old medication to bring it down. Next a.m. - called again, still waiting...
