So Jean got diagnosed, got proper medication, got augmentation therapy.
She also got a new pulmonary doctor, who said he wanted to see Jean every two months. Since her health was stable, she was exercising regularly and having no setbacks of any kind, she didn't take this request seriously.
Two months later, her doctor sent her a message -- not directly, but through the nurse who was giving her Prolastin infusions.
This was the message:
Jean had an appointment with the doctor the following Monday at 11 am. (She hadn't scheduled any appointment.) If she didn't show up, her doctor would cancel her infusions and refuse to write prescriptions.
Faced with this blackmail, she showed up for the appointment. Since there were no new health issues to discuss, the main conversation topic was her anger at the doctor's dictatorial behavior.
Waste of time. He still insists on seeing her every two months, and still writes prescriptions for two months only, no renewals. The only apparent reason: to maximize fees for office visits.
She's switching doctors.
