I'm amending my review below after seeing another doctor. It turns out Dr Sugarman gave me incorrect information and told me there was no generic equivalent for Viagra although Sam's Club had it on their list under their Plus membership pricing program. When faced with this information, he told me that the drug was in the form of an injection instead of a tablet. It turns out that wasn't true. In addition, my new doctor had no problem writing out the three prescriptions I originally tried to obtain through Dr Sugarman in a manner to obtain the discounted Sam's Club Plus Program price. I think the issue here is Dr Sugarman is young and inexperienced, and when he was confronted with the mistake he couldn't admit it. Instead, he made up the story about the Viagra only being at that price in an injectable form to cover up his mistake hoping that I would believe it.

The doctor and staff are really nice people. Except for one occasion (which I will get to below), the doctor has a really great demeanor and is very knowledgeable. He is well-intentioned. So, here’s why I left his practice and got another doctor. His conscientious and ethical approach in many ways is quite admirable. However, he gets too technical. Sam’s Club gets a number of medications in bulk and passes those savings onto its Plus Card members. However, the catch is the prescription must be written for a specific size pill and generally in a 30 day quantity. To accommodate, I have either split the pills or taken additional tablets. None of my previous doctors before moving to the area have ever had a problem doing this, and I was currently taking a prescription that was carried over from a previous doctor in this manner (which Dr. Grayson also prescribed refills for several times). When I asked him to change the prescriptions to be written to where I could get them for free or for a substantial discount at Sam’s Club, he outright refused. In fact, he refilled them as is without even addressing the notes left through the My Chart portal requesting they be written differently. When I inquired and told him as written the prescriptions were prohibitively expensive, he condescendingly said that he doesn’t determine the prices of drugs and that he doubted there was that much of a price difference. I don’t know if he was having a bad day or something, but I have never seen him be this way. So, I confirmed he wasn’t going to change the prescriptions. To his credit (which I learned when he advised me on it), one prescription on the Sam’s Club price list wasn’t for my application. So, I will give him that. However, on one all he had to do was change the quantity. On the other, I normally took 1000 mg, but the price list was for 500 mg. So, I take two pills instead of one. He said that size was a daily tablet instead of for episodic situations, such as in my case. He said I was asking him to change my diagnosis and commit fraud. That isn’t what I was asking! So, I wrote back and said it’s his prerogative how he wants to write the prescriptions, that it was my prerogative to find another doctor that will write them differently (which many have no problem doing) and that I would find another doctor. I received no further response. There is one other thing that bothered me about this guy. When I booked my first appointment with him, I was told before booking that he does not prescribe narcotics. So, it you have an injury that can’t be totally rectified by therapy, you are going to suffer in pain.

Dr. Grayson is awesome! He's personable, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable. He even saw me 5 minutes before my appointment time, as I arrived early. That was a first! Highly highly recommended!
