A Rx by Any Other Name Would Smell as Sweet

Dr. is in
My new doctor’s nurse says someone else is using my Social Security number.
“It belongs to a Gail Dempsey.”
“That’s me—but 35 years ago.”
“You were a patient with us?”
“Apparently.”
“We’ll change the name. It could take a few days.”
“No worries. I doubt my ex-husband will mind two of us.”
Done and done. Until my prescription service called today.
“Someone named Dempsey is trying to refill your meds.”
I went through the saga.
“Can’t refill your prescriptions until the name thing is verified.”
“Call the doctor.”
“We did. He’s got you down as Dempsey.”
I gave up.
