Doctor: Dr. Frank, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
Dear sir,

Xanax is a controlled substance because of it's potential addicting nature. Therefore the prescribing of this drug has to be done under the supervision of a physician.

I am sorry but I am unable to write any prescription for you. My purpose in this venue is to try to understand your concerns and offer you the best advice that I can. I am not allowed to develop any other doctor-patient relationship with you.

Please try to understand. You do need the professional care of a physician to bring about a resolution to your concern. There are ways to bring this about. Start by calling your doctors office and get their advice as to how you can get a visit scheduled to improve your quality of life.

God bless,

Dr. Frank MD

P.S. Please keep me informed. Send an update should you have any news regarding our discussion. Just direct it to Dr. Frank MD. I will appreciate it.

Dear Doctor Frank,
I trust that you will not take offence to my pointing out to you that I am homebound and non-ambulatory. additionally, I SUFFER FROM PROFOUND HEARING LOSS IN BOTH EARS AND MY SPECIAL PHONE EQUIPMENT AND DEVICES ARE IN DISREPAIR AND MY FIXED INCOME DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO GET NEW EQUIPMENT.I simply wanted to avoid having to be transported via an ambulance and waiting on a gurney for hours in a hospital hallway, as is usually the case.I answered all of your questions and I believed you had sufficient information to write a one time courtesy prescription.I simply dread having the ambulance picking me up in front of my home.
I hope you can realize my plight..Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
