Filling a Routine Prescription
All medications, including refills, are prescribed based on your current condition. Follow-up appointments are scheduled so that we can monitor your condition and adjust your medications accordingly.
You or your pharmacist may call your physician or nurse for information about refills.
When possible, obtain your prescriptions at the time of your appointment. We prescribe medications after hours only in cases of emergency.
If you have questions regarding your prescription medications, you may call your physician during office hours, when we can refer to your medical record. For emergency situations after hours, the physician on call will be paged on your behalf and will respond quickly.
Filling a Narcotic Prescription
CII narcotic prescriptions are handled differently: CII narcotic prescriptions, by law, cannot be “called-in” to the pharmacy; you must contact our office for a refill. We will prepare the prescription, then you must take it to your pharmacy yourself to be filled.
We can mail narcotic prescriptions to you if we have at least 72 hours advance notice, but you will still need to take the prescription to the pharmacy to be filled.
Please note that narcotic prescriptions are only valid for twenty-one days once they have been written.
