Prescription drugs are available only after an examination and careful consideration. Refills are limited and monitored for your protection. Please alert your physician to all medication you are taking, including non-prescription drugs.
During normal business hours, call your pharmacy directly to refill a prescription; the pharmacy will then contact our office for authorization. Please allow four to six hours to approve a refill request. We recommend that you call the pharmacy before going to pick up your prescription, to make certain they have received/filled the prescription. Often, your insurance plan may allow 90-day mail-in prescriptions for chronic medications. Remember that these mail-in prescriptions may take two to three weeks to be filled.
Please bring containers of all your current medications when you come for appointments; this will help us ensure that you are taking the proper medications and dosages. It also will help eliminate confusion that might arise in cases where you may be receiving medication from more than one physician. In addition, always keep a list of current medications with exact name, dosage, frequency and duration of use. It is also advisable to maintain a list of drugs to which you have reacted previously (i.e., drug allergies).
