Consumer Complaints

My open letter to HPCSA. We, the practitioners that ensure your very existence, would like to know why you feel the need to abuse us by unilaterally increasing the our annual fee this year, for the third year in a row. According to your publicly available annual report from 2020/2021, you registered 30 000 practitioners. These obviously vary between interns/medical officers/specialists, etc. And if we are to use a Conservative estimate of 20 000 independent practitioners, this would mean that your fees for this year would amount to R3266 × 20 000 = R65 320 000. We, the practitioners that ensure your very existence, would like to know what exactly this money went towards, and will go towards, and why such a massive increase is needed in the first place. In a publicly available...

On February 4th , 2022 at approximately 1 pm today during my lunch break I went to Walmart at 3580 Memorial Drive, Decatur GA 30032 to shop for groceries/ essentials before the freeze that was happening to Atlanta that night. I left around 4:30pm. Why? Because of Walmart’s discriminatory practices where I was profiled, illegally detained at the door, considered and treated as a criminal, and when I asked for my money back; upon being told I could not have my refund; I was refused my receipt even though my items had been placed back on the shelf. I was forced to contact police, and was finally given my stapled receipt to return to Walmart the next day to be refunded over $400 dollars all because of a $6.11 case of eggs that did not fit in a bag. So, to put this in perspective, my...

This is an open letter, about and to, Merck Pharma and the FDA regarding the new COVID pill. Let's start with a little background. Merck manufactures Ivermectin, but the patents are up, so lots of people manufacture it.. So, Merck really can't make much money off of it. Right now the cost of Ivermectin is actually somewhere around $12 a dose, which is high, because of demand. Ivermectin, a Nobel prize winning drug, in addition to being used and promoted by leading doctors at FLCCC and by Dr. Zelenko, has been proven by India and Japan, among other countries, to basically eliminate COVID. When used early it practically eliminates hospitalizations and death by 80%+ compared to no early treatment. This can be easily verified by anyone that cares. And based on the latest data out...

This is a copy of a letter I sent to NPR. I just finished reading your "How Ivermectin became the new focus..." article by Pien Huang and I'd like to point out three important facts that your reporter failed to mention. If I am wrong about the facts I'm going to mention then I want you to tell me why they are wrong. Show me proof that they are wrong. If I am right, then you need to either retract this story or reprint it, with the relevant facts mentioned. I expect one or the other, or I will take further action against your organization. First, she talks about cases where patients have taken doctors to court to force them to prescribe Ivermectin. Yes, this has happened multiple times, and in most of the cases, the doctors were forced to give the Ivermectin. What your reporter...

Apparently, jointly with the APhA and the ASHP, via MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Dr. Harmon is asking medical professionals to stop using Ivermectin to treat COVID-19, that there are other drugs that can be used, and "Ivermectin has not been shown to be one of those to be effective for the COVID-19 virus."... "right now the safest thing for you to do is take the current approved courses... If you require more treatment, there are established, safe, very well-approved treatments. Then they go on to say that Ivermectin is a deworming medicine for animals, which also treats lice, and some skin conditions. And then, they mention that doctors have reported success using it for COVID-19, talking about some study where continued use of Ivermectin for five years help treat patients with mild COVID-19...

Let me first say that I really appreciate that Alabama passed a law to prevent discrimination against people based on their vaccination status. Compared to what's going on in some states and other countries, it's a huge relief to know that government believes in freedom of choice and personal sovereignty. However, I believe there is still room for improvement as it relates to the message that is being pushed. I've seen multiple news stories where leaders are being quoted as saying that everyone needs to be vaccinated and that it's the quickest way to get out of this mess. Unfortunately those statements are inaccurate, and I challenge them to do the research. The fact is that the vaccines do not work. That can now be easily seen if you look at what has happened in the highly...

Dear Activision, Raven, Treyarch, and Infinity Ward, I am writing to you today as a lover of the games you have produced for years, and as a representative of the Call of Duty community. As a community, we love and appreciate all the work you do each and every year to produce a new game in the saga we grew up on. For most of us, our start in the Call of Duty franchise came in the late 2000s with titles such as Modern Warfare and Black Ops. We were in awe of these games and many of our childhoods are filled with the late night split screen zombies with friends, and the grind to reach each game’s highest prestige. As of late, the love for Call of Duty is dwindling in many of us. The community feels as though we are not being listened to, and each new installment is feeling more and...

To non-paper straw users… Why are you so upset when you have to use a paper straw? They’re here to help with the environment. Sure they may get soggy in your drink or have an odd taste but the way they taste or how they hold up in water isn’t why they are made and used--They are here to help reduce the amount of plastic that is around the globe in our trash, our water, and our animals. I work at a fast food restaurant which has a drive through. So naturally, a lot of people order a beverage to go and need a straw to drink said beverage. Recently however, my store switched over to paper straws as a way to reduce the amount of plastic that is used there. Everything was fine with the change… until people who dislike paper straws came in to eat or came through my drive through. It is...

To the various companies and businesses that supply us with food, I first and foremost thank you for providing nourishment and sustenance to mankind; your role in all our daily lives is certainly an important one. We literally couldn’t survive without you. You have evolved and we’re now faced with brighter packaging, advertisements, and more promising products—you’ve changed the game for us all. However, I must admit that not all of your practices sit well with me; there are some aspects that I found to be quite distasteful, especially those that involve marketing. In my English class, we were recently challenged to ask a difficult and uncomfortable question and search for the answer. I asked: are food labels really beneficial for the consumer? Or are they actually for the benefit of...
