    The few times I had problems with doctors I just called my insurance company and told them.

    I do know that in Virginia, if you are in pain and ask for pain meds, they have to give them to you. I finally found out the reason I was offered Lortabs was that I can't take Aleve, Advil, or aspirin because I am already on a NSAID, Diclofenac. That is the real reason I got better pain meds.

    I agree with you. ;-)
