Prescriptions

Prescriptions are not given without the patient being seen and examined first. We ask that you request all refills when in the office; however, you can request a refill by phone.  Be sure to include the child’s full name, date of birth, a phone number where you can be reached, the name and dosage of the medication and your pharmacy’s name and number. You may be asked to schedule a follow-up visit before a medication is refilled if deemed necessary by the physician. Refill requests should be made 5 days before the prescription is due to run out.

Requests for medication refills will be phoned to your pharmacy or will be ready for pickup within 24 hours of the request.  A nurse will contact you to confirm the medication and dosage.  Medication cannot be refilled without this information.

Refills for long term medications require a follow up every three months and a yearly physical.  This includes medications for asthma and ADD/ADHD.

If you use a mail order pharmacy, we do NOT fax refill requests or new prescription orders.  You need to mail any prescription, so plan accordingly to receive your medicine on time.
