AMA Wants Docs to be Pharmacists, if Pharmacists Insist on Being Docs

Docs want to dispense drugs if pharmacists won't

Dr. Mary Frank of Mill Valley, California, a former president of the AAFP, said some pharmacists are also refusing to return prescriptions that they refuse to fill and "they are lecturing patients. This is interfering with patient's access to care."

I agree completely. If pharamacists want to keep their jobs as pharmacists and not have doctors do it for them -- they need to do the damn job. If they want to lecture patients and determine their level of care, they can go back to school and get an M.D. and lecture to their patients, not someone else's.
