I have been in practice more than 20 years and have great relationships with my patients. Occasionally there is a patient who refuses to come in to the office for necessary follow up care and expects refills without appropriate medical care. A disgruntled patient may hop between multiple doctors looking for someone who will just give them what they want even if it is not appropriate. I can not see someone like that. I really care for my patients, work hard for them and have wonderful rapport.
