Due to the necessity for communication on many levels, refilling medications through pharmacies can be a frustrating experience for both patients and staff. It is of the utmost concern to us that we refill your medications in a timely manner. To minimize problems, we suggest that you call your pharmacy at least two days before you expect to run out of medications and ask the pharmacy to contact us for a refill.

For patient safety we do not, as a rule, prescribe antibiotics without an office visit, nor do we refill antibiotics without re-evaluating the patient in the office. We will usually refill inhaled medications such as those used for asthma, allergies, and emphysema without an office visit if the patient’s health status is stable and he or she has been seen in the past six months.

Patients who take daily medications should be evaluated every six to twelve months. If you are taking medication regularly and it has been over a year since your last office visit please schedule an appointment for a re-evaluation.

If you are an established patient taking daily medication and will run out before you can schedule an appointment, we ask that you call us for a limited refill (e.g. 10-20 pills) to get you through until your appointment. We strongly encourage patients not to run out of medications for high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems, and high cholesterol before the office visit. We are better able to evaluate the effectiveness of medication when it is taken regularly prior to the office visit.
