I can't imagine undergoing treatment for anything and having to operate like this!
When I was doing OOT with both Cooper and Cornell my local RE clinic didn't have any issue with using photocopied orders. ANd the same when I have had to use a local radiology group and local Quest.
And now that I'm PG, my own OB gave me a photocopy order for b/w and NT scan and the hospital had no issue taking it.
If my doctors had to send over orders each and every time for everything I'd be frustrated too!
Is it a state law thing that they require the order to come directly from the doctor's office? I can't imagine it has anything to do with the "photocopy" look because the faxed version is the same as the photocopy version...
