11/09/13 4 3 4 4 I am writing a review bcuz I feel dr newsome does not care about what I am going thru. I am going thru the worst withdrawls and the wrst is that I have 3 kids who r able to understand what I am going thru. I have been in the ER 3 times in the past month and anybody knows u get flagged for going to many times. The script I get is not common so it takes 4days to order and wrkmans comp takes 2days to pay. I have continuosly told and he does not care about my problems. The dr's at the ER are questioning his judgement. And so are 3pharmacist at walgreens cvs and another cvs. I have been vomiting sweating and my body wakes me up shaking. How am I suppose to function? Don't know I have told him over and over to put me back on my methadone. He gives me no honest answer why he took me off! I often question if he has a good head on his shoulder bcuz he has no bedside manners or a friendly dr. I try to talk to him but I only get a yes ahuh? I getting a new doc who cares.
