The routine practice of It’s All About The Patient is to write a prescription to cover your medication until your next scheduled appointment. If you keep your scheduled appointments and/or take the prescribed medication as directed, then there will not be a need for additional medication refills prior to your next scheduled appointment. If an exception occurs, please have your pharmacy fax a medication request to (888) 972-1958 at least 7 days before running out of medication. Refills will be considered for patients with a scheduled follow-up appointment and on a case by case basis.
Please remember it is the patient’s responsibility to keep their appointment scheduled and to schedule a follow-up appointment before running out of medication. Patients who are prescribed controlled substances will require to be seen by our medical provider(s) more frequently and will be responsible to call the office 7 days prior to completing their current controlled prescription. In addition, you may be asked to perform a urine drug screening test in the office at a $30 cost which you will be financially responsible for to confirm the presence of or absence of controlled substances.
