Question normal

Locally, surgeons, dentists, urologists, and ER MDs varying widely in rx for similar problems. I'm a rural PCP, and often get calls for short-term extension/refills. Mostly, these are easy decisions, but sometimes transport, etc problems make it complicated to decide if request is reasonable.
If I can reach the prescriber, that's easy, but often the patient's claim that calls aren't returned or that prescriber cannot be reached turns out to be true.
