I am happy with the service you've provided. However, why Is It okay that you can prescribe metformin, novolog, lantus, etc..? But the pharmacy says you are not authorized to give me the libra 3 sensor. They decided I needed to see a specialist ( I DO ) and I can"t get something you say I should have. 4 times this sensor has alerted 2 high and 2 low and I would have only thought I was feeling sick. Thank you
