Will my new doctor prescribe blood pressure medication over the phone without seeing me first?
I had to get a new doctor due to change in insurance. I haven't seen them yet and I kinda don't want to go. Can I just call them and ask for the prescriptions without seeing them?

No, and its pretty much illegal to do that without a legal chart, and if they have never ever even met you then absolutely not.

No doctor that is any good is going to prescribe without examining you.

A doctor that has never seen you before isn't going to prescribe anything based on just a phone call.
If you have a prescription that is about to run out and you call asking for a REFILL - then they MIGHT authorize another 30 day supply to give you time to make an appointment for a check up.
