I had 2 doctors and I told 1 doctor I am no longer his patient. A red flag came up at the pharmacy when I filled out a script from the more knoledgable doctor, who's finally diagnosed me. Now I don't know if this doctor will keep me on after the pharmacist told him about the red flag. What will happen?
You should have got the doctor to cancel your original contract before getting the second one. In AU, contracts/authorities are taken very seriously. The doctor has to be an approved prescriber, I have to go to the same medical practice and have to pick up my medication at a designated pharmacy. When I first moved to this state, the pain doctor looked me up on the medical database and found that I had to current contracts (one in each state). He showed me on the computer and asked about it; satisfied by me explanation he said that these had to be cancelled (would I be happy with that? Yes.). So he cancelled them and put me on a new contract/authority for a different painkiller. While they are being prescribed I have to comply with random combo urine/blood tests. If I fail, there is no second chance that is acceptable to me. If I fail badly; summary cancellation without notice is the result.
Make an appointment with your new doctor and explain what has happened. I feel that if you don't come clean ASAP you will be stuck with that red flag.
