when I called in the am to get a refill the office said they would send it over to the pharmacy. when I went there in the afternoon they said they haven't received anything from them or the dr. I had to go back to call them and they said oh must still be with the dr. it would have been nice if they would have called me back saying the dr is out or will be sent in the late afternoon.
