Advance Diabetics Supplie Complaint - If you want problems, deal with Advance Diabetics Supplies

Review by tired of ripoffs on 2011-06-15
CARLSBAD, CA 92009, CALIFORNIA -- Once these people get their claws in you you’ll never forget. I used them once on a Medi-care prescription which they were more than pleased in filling because they’d get reimbursed by Medi-care. Well, after dealing with them once they soon started calling extremely early in the morning about refills. I asked them not to call early in the morning but they couldn’t care less. I finally ordered them to no longer call me. I attempted to get a prescription filled elsewhere and as it turns out, the pharmacy where I get my prescriptions filled orders thru ADS. My pharmacy kept telling my ADS would call, they had to talk to me, don’t know what it was about but I never heard from them. Bottom line, they were going to attempt to make my life miserable. Flat out lying to my pharmacy

It’s my experience and recommendation not to deal with them. You want good pharmacy prices, check out Walmart, Target, Costco. I’m sure that they’re just as competitive.

Good suggestion about checking the costs at local pharmacies vs. ADS. You might want to let your doctor know about the problems you've had with them, as well, so they can warn other patients.

Are doctors allowed to "spread the word" about which pharmacy to go to - or to not go to?

Just asking because it might make people question the doc's objectivity...

i.e. showing support for one pharmacy over another may make people wonder if the doc's trying to drum up business for a friend.

or if the doc is saying "don't go there"... the pharmacy in question may have the legal right to file a complaint with the medical board...

Wait... ADS won't call you?

Have you notified them that they now have permission to call you again?

It's possible they're refusing to call you in compliance to your request to stop calling... maybe they didn't realize you wanted them to call again?

Just a note: Check the price of your prescriptions without insurance, you will be surprised to find out that some are cheaper than the co-pay with your insurance.
