Prescription Handwriting - Messy writing

I am disgusted with the poor handwriting of my doctors on the prescriptions given to me to take to the pharmacist. Even the pharmacist was complaining big time about the disgusting messy handwriting of my doctor. He almost gave me the wrong dose. What recourse do we have?

Ask your doctor to write clearly - No joking. If your cant read what he has written, your pharmacist will also battle. By asking your doctor to print, mistakes can be ruled out
