PRESCRIPTION REFILLS

 

  • Before you come to your regular appointment, you should look over your medications, diabetes supplies, inhalers, etc. to determine if you need to request any new prescriptions at your appointment.


 

  • We do require office visits on a regular basis for all of our patients taking prescription medication. The interval will vary depending on the type of medication prescribed. Please be sure you have enough medication to last until your next scheduled visit.


 

  • Prescription refills require close monitoring by your provider to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Your provider will prescribe the appropriate number of prescription refills to last until your next scheduled appointment. Generally, when you are down to zero refills, it is time to schedule a follow up appointment.  We prefer you request any refills of your medications at the beginning of your office visit. 


 

  • It is very important to request your prescriptions during your office visit. At your provider’s discretion, we may refill outside an office visit. 

    • We will charge a fee of $25 for prescription refills outside of an office visit.

    • We will only supply 30 days of your medication

 

 

  • It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment before you run out of medication. You should schedule your next visit before you leave our office.   

 

 

  • New symptoms or events require an office visit. Your provider will not diagnose or treat over the phone.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: Controlled substances will never be called in after hours or without an office visit.
