New York Times: Specialty Pharmacies Proliferate, Along With Questions

Last week, I was quoted in a New York Times article about specialty pharmacies. I think the article is a very insightful investigation of a very important topic. Many patients with chronic illnesses are captive audiences, forced by our insurance companies to use whatever specialty pharmacy they may choose. If these pharmacies don't live up to our expectations, we have no choice but to keep dealing with them if we want the medications that make our lives possible. This can place a huge burden on patients who are already living with chronic illnesses, so I am very glad to see this issue getting some real coverage.
