... does the doctor care more about the money? or the actual success and healthy monitoring of the patient. Cause i feel like i was being bashed when i went to the consult with my doctor. He told me all this stuff about how he has no sympathy for me ( not that i was looking for any ) and no matter how hard my lifes been his has been harder ..and "i aint here to babysit a baby" and dont waste my time... so by the time i left i felt unwanted and more ashamed of my addiction then ever befor.I mean yeah he gave me these shitty pills but now i feel like i have a enemy instead of a doctor who should want to help me.any advice? is this how every doctor is? or am i just a shitty person that doesnt deserve help I dont know i just feel preety down and scared to go back there. I feel like he hates me and i get this feeling like hes gonna tell me when i show up for my next appt. that "yeah i dont think i can do anything for you sorry thanks for the cash peace"... yah know what i mean anyone? any advice would make me feel better
Obviously this doctor does not understand addiction. YES, he needs to set down firm rules as lets face it, addicts tend to do what they want when they are still in active addiction behavior. That's still no reason for him to get personal. So my advice to you is to show this asshole that you are a good person who is afflicted with addiction but that you are done playing the game. Stay on the suboxone and follow his prescription..Don't ever let anyone put you down. It takes a lot of guts to go to a medical doctor and tell him you need help because you're addicted to opiates. So hold your head high and get your life slowly back on track and win this prick over... Hang in there.it's worth it... Dave
hi skopp,sounds to me this doc is taking the tuff love approach. that'd fine, if u gave him his money for the first visit and he scares you off then he can charge the next new patient the start up price. by the way your first visit should cost you more money. then the next visit. think of it this way, your not wanting his medical knowledge. you only need him for his license to prescrib suboxone.the only way you can show that your serious is to make this stuff work. im on suboxone also. and my doc told me on the first visit that i should get on methadone. i told the doc to take that stuff yourself. i been on suboxone 8months and not 1of my urine tests have come up dirty. dont be intimidated by one of these doctors who had to take an extra course in drug withdraw to make it as a real doctor who has a successful practice. think of him as an opportunistic bottom feeder. if u need to chat just drop me a texm
I know exactly how you feel. My sub dr would meet me at the store, as soon as billing knew he changed and said we have to meet at the office-$$$. He could care less, i had a seizure and he did not return my calls for a week, he is only in it for the $ and has made me feel like he is saying ok, to what ever I say, like yeah great, pay the bill, see ya later! I talk to him about other medical related things and he brushes me off. You are not alone, your "dr" sounds like a jerk, and I am sure you are great, take what you need from him look for another dr, and just know that he has issues that he seems to be putting on you. F him, keep doing the right thing.
