So I’ve been on the same maintanence regimen of allergy medications for a decade.
For three years now, during the pandemic, I call the allergist up and ask for a refill. They ask how I am, I say nothing has changed, they send the script to the pharmacy.
Back in November of last year, they tell me that they haven’t seen me in a while that I’ll need to come in next year.
Today I go in for my appointment. Despite the notice that everyone must wear a mask, no one does, including the staff behind the desk. So I wait outside. I wait for 45 minutes.
Finally, it’s my turn. The nurse asks me 5 questions, doesn’t exam me, then sends me on my way.
The cost with insurance: $400.
