Thank you for your comments and questions on this matter. I would like to first reiterate that the department is fully aware that our department has been open for business since the beginning of June and we have been receiving requests for our services. I would like to also clarify that the health department is not responsible for the quality of the services that we offer.
I understand that I am not an employee of the county, and that I am not responsible for the quality of the services that we offer. This is a matter that I am concerned with. We have been receiving requests for our services for a long time and have worked hard to try to meet the needs of all of our clients and the requests we receive. We have had some issues with some of our employees who have not been properly trained and qualified.
There are plenty of bad apple doctors out there. Some are worse than others. I’m just saying, don’t let the fact that they are all the same stop you from taking the time to find out who you are dealing with. If their bad reputation has a negative impact on you, then get a second opinion.
For our health dept. we have some of the worst doctors in the country. We have had a few cases where the doctor didn’t do what he was supposed to do, even when we asked him to. He either prescribed a medicine that caused us to feel sick or the doctor just didn’t have the knowledge to see what caused the problem. Either way, it’s not a good situation to be in.
The health dept is a state agency that helps citizens get medical care. The problem is that the ones of us who were insured ended up with bad doctors and the doctors we had werent aware enough to prescribe the right medicine. In fact they werent aware of what was causing the problem so they prescribed whatever made our symptoms look worst.
They also took the time to call us so we could explain what we went through so they could prescribe the right medicine. But the point is, our insurance ended up with the wrong doctors, and our insurance did the wrong thing by leaving us with the wrong doctors. We ended up with a doctor who prescribed medicine that we did not need and a doctor who would not even tell us why his office was closed.
I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that our insurance was ending up with the wrong doctors and the wrong medicine. Sure, this would make sense if they were doing something unethical or illegal, but it seems crazy to me that they would do something so drastic that has no other purpose than to get us off of our insurance.
While it’s true that the state of Maryland is currently in the midst of an opioid shortage that has resulted in health system administrators scrambling to find new ways to keep patients from getting hooked on opioids, it’s not the only state in the country facing a similar crisis.
In fact, the state of Maryland has been on a mission to eliminate its opioid epidemic as quickly as possible. As of the end-of-May, they’ve done so by making it more difficult to purchase painkillers.
While most states are struggling with the opioid crisis, Maryland has been working to get there. In the last two years, they’ve reduced the amount of pills people could buy on the internet, making it easier for people to purchase prescriptions. And they’ve also made it easier for patients to get access to free prescription drugs. Now they’re trying to tackle the opioid crisis at its source.
