Dr. Kirschner thoughtfully read my chart and discovered that another doctor had been prescribing only half the medicine I should have been taking and told me to contact her. I did that and am now (after 2.5 yrs of only part of the medicines I should have) getting the proper Rx. Specifically, I was taking Estrogen but not Progesterone for Osteoporosis. I still have a uterus so I should have been taking both.
