Prescription refill policyOur office handles prescription refills differently than many other practices.
When we write a prescription or give a refill, enough medication is given to last until your next visit. Sometimes, if it is medically sound, refills are included in the prescription to cover longer periods of time. Beyond this, prescriptions are extended (refilled) only during an office visit. At times an exception is made and the fee is $25 per medication.
We do not accept phone call or faxed refill requests from pharmacies. Please inform your pharmacy not to contact us for refills. Medications are refilled during your visit with the doctor only. (If refills are already included on the prescription, the pharmacy can give you those without calling us.)
Please understand that it’s your responsibility to keep track of your medication refills and schedule follow up appointments accordingly.
Please keep this in mind when scheduling or rescheduling follow up appointments.
