    I don't understand most of Hesstx's rambling. If you are asking for schedule II drugs, it is perfectly reasonable for a provider to ask you to sign an agreement or decline to treat you. What is so hard to understand about that?
    If by this time you have not come to understand that we should never ask/help remove the right to privacy or confidentially to any pt. You scare me know there are those out there willing to do that. We dont even ask that of a mentally ill pt.

    It is not the form or agreement for the most part that I have issue with. It is giving up your rights, and what that may hold for the staff member down the line if fought and not up held

    A simple soultion here is to find another doctor if this one doesn't meet your needs. Look into a new PCP and move on.

    Perhaps it is b/c I don't take any medications at all, much less sched IIs, but I don't see any violation of anyone's right to privacy here. IMO only someone with something to hide would be concerned about this benign policy. In any event, ITA w/ Batman- find a new provider.
