A New York man claims that a CVS pharmacist violated his privacy by discussing his Viagra prescription with his wife, which allegedly led to the failure of his marriage. Michael Feinberg of Long Island, said that he explained to the pharmacist that he would pay out-of-pocket for the pills rather than through insurance, the New York Post reported.

But he claims that a few days later, his wife called the CVS to talk about her own recipe, and a pharmacist raised his Viagra script. Feinberg claims that in doing so, the pharmacist “without requests, misinformed, [Feinberg’s] wife [are] a prescription for Viagra not covered by insurance,” and violated his privacy under HIPPA.

He said that his wife was not entitled to know about his recipe, and said that the ordeal has led to a breakdown of his marriage, and caused a “real, serious spiritual damage and emotional damage,” the NYPost reported.

A spokesman told the news outlet that CVS places the highest priority on protecting the privacy of the people we serve.” Feinberg filed his lawsuit with the Nassau Supreme Court.
