Repeated asking of the same questions is often annoying; but I think at least sometimes it may be done deliberately as a double check -- are we sure we've got this information right? I've had people read off parts of my chart to me in that sort of fashion -- 'you're taking x medication, is that still correct?' etc.

If changes aren't getting through to the pharmacy, I agree that's a different sort of problem. And it might imply that they're asking you the questions all over again not to make sure they get it right, but because there's a communications problem within the practice.
