Your prescription needs can be taken care of as part of your regular office visit, at no extra charge. Our providers make every effort to provide long-term prescriptions and automatic refills at that time, to avoid your having to contact us separately to request a refill.
Please be aware that refills take valuable staff and physician time to address. All patients who request prescription refills at any time other than an office visit may be charged a service fee that varies based on the number of medications. This includes prescriptions that need to be called in, faxed, or mailed to a pharmacy, and prescriptions that must be rewritten.
Mail order prescription refills
For patients with mail order prescription plans, your provider will hand you a written prescription at the time of your office visit for you to mail in. Alternatively, most mail order prescriptions can be sent directly to the pharmacy during your office visit. If your provider determines that you need to start a medication immediately, they can send it electronically or give you a written prescription for a local pharmacy.
New prescriptions via phone
There may be times when your provider prescribes a new medication for you over the phone. Any medication needed immediately will be electronically sent or called in to a local pharmacy. Long-term prescriptions or any prescriptions that are not needed immediately may be mailed to you or sent electronically.
How to request prescription refills
If you require a prescription refill outside of an office visit, try to plan at least 3 days in advance. Please call the office and speak to our pharmacy personnel or send us an email to this effect. We will fax the prescription to your pharmacy directly. Please make sure that you send us your pharmacy information, including phone number, fax number, and address. Alternatively, you may call the pharmacy and have them send the request to us electronically.
