Treated as worthless
      #225492 - 03/03/07 11:43 PM

This is a prime example of how vulnerable we (PWA) People living with Aids are, and how even when there is Gross Medical Malpractice by a supporting medical provider, we are treated as unimportant, irrelevant, and bothersome.
Millions of dollars a year are spent to educate us to be adherent to our medications. What can we do when the people we depend on hurt us?

I will try to make this short! (Like me)

I called my Aids specialty pharmacy calling it-self “MOMS Pharmacy” on Monday morning 1-22-07 to order refills. I was told my med’s were already being re-filled and they would be delivered on Wednesday. I was also told their computer showed that I would be out of med’s on Friday. Not getting my med’s on Wednesday or Thursday; I called on Friday afternoon and I was told my med’s would be delivered that night 1-26-07. I made the woman (not using names) Promise to call me if there were any problems or if I needed to pick them up. I NEVER GOT THE MEDS. The pharmacy is closed on weekends. I called on Saturday and left a message BEGGING for a response.
I called them on Monday 1-29-07 and spoke to the area supervisor and this is what he said,

Quote ”The employee apologizes for not calling you back like she said she would, OH WELL” End quote. (How would you feel?)
I told him not to fill me med’s and he would never get another dime of my healthcare dollars! The pharmacy had not even charged my insurance for the medications yet! I had another pharmacy fill it that afternoon.

The only thing I can do is advertise the abuse I received from this company to every outlet available to me.

What is 6 days of pain worth? Two and a half days without the medication, and three and a half more days while the medication built back up in my system, Four days of blindness without the Cerebral Palsy medication keeping my Nystagmus under control. 5 nights of inability to sleep due to sharp stabbing pains (off and on) from not having neuropathy medication, No HIV medications, and then having to go to extra doctor appointments - and having extra blood work done because of not having the damned medications.

After being caused SIGNIFICANT harm and getting no response from the pharmacy’s hierarchy, I attempted to file a complaint with the California State Pharmacy Board and was told there is NO License or D.B.A for MOMS. It took 4 days for the state licensing specialist to find this company's REAL identity. All their paperwork, brochures, and medication PILL BOTTLES have only the Fake name of MOMS Pharmacy INC CA on them. This prevents us consumers from finding them! Check the state of California website yourself and try to file a complaint. YOU Can’t! This is very convenient for the company.
Allion Healthcare (NYSE Symbol ALLI)
Illegally D.B.A as MOMS Pharmacy INC, CA.
Medicine Made Easy
19300 So. Hamilton #170 -180
Gardena CA 90248

Why are we worthless to this company? Please ask your HIV positive friends!
Thank All of you
