0720-1367WAMy son has anxiety attacks when he tries to get blood drawn. He has been on the same dose of levothyroxine and needs a prescription refilled. The doctor requires a current blood test. He has tried counseling, drugs and mental preparation in an attempt to get blood drawn. Each attempt in the last two years has ended with me exiting the lab in a state of very high anxiety.

Is there a law or medical rule that makes the blood draw required? I understand why it is recommended. If it doesn’t violate a law or rule, I want to find a doctor who will work with me to fill prescription without new blood work.

0720-1361LAHusband is a Steward Medical Group (SMG)/Glenwood patient. SMG is in our PPO (Anthem Blue Cross) but charging us more than the EOB allows, threatening to turn account over to collection. We actually have a credit balance with SMG, but communications have failed. I handle all our bookkeeping.

SMG needs to refund our credit balance and quit overcharging. We've sent letters to SMG, including certified, and made phone calls, all to no avail. We're HOH (hard of hearing), which adds to the problem. I handle paying bills and have his permission as far as all his medical. Thanks!
