She won't renew your insulin prescription unless you go in to see her every 3 months.

I see this doctor yearly since 2014. In years past, they have sent lab orders (required before the appointment) a month in advance as well as detailed summary of location and parking. I received none of these materials this year and actually had to request my own lab order. I travel 2 hours to this appointment that should last 20 minutes. I was late in arriving, due to extreme confusion, and my appointment was passed for a new patient (an hour appointment). I felt very unprepared to be seen.
