Welcome to Wellness Medicine, as a valued patient of our clinic we want you to understand our practice policies for patients and staff. Please review our prescription refill policy below. If you have any questions, feel free to ask one of our knowledgeable staff member in person or call us at (678) 479-5678.
Before you come to your regular appointment, you should look over your medications, diabetes supplies, inhalers, etc. to determine if you need to request any new / refill of prescriptions at your appointment.
We do require office visits on a regular basis for all our patients taking prescription medication. The interval will vary depending on the condition being treated and the type of medication prescribed. Please be sure you have enough medication to last until your next scheduled visit.
It is very important to request your prescriptions during your office visit.
Please bring all your prescription bottles (or an updated medication list) with you to your appointment. This is important to make sure that:
you are taking the correct medications and the correct doses
we have an up-to-date list of your medications. We will carefully review your medications and write refills at your office visit. We will also ask you to review the new prescriptions to make sure that they are written correctly.
As part of our policy, we will offer the following options for prescription refills:
We can provide written prescriptions.
We can call in certain medication s to your requested pharmacy
Our policy is to call in appropriate requests for prescription refills within 2 business days (not including weekends and holidays). We will have written prescriptions available within 3 business days.
If you call to request a refill but are overdue for a follow-up visit and/or blood work, the provider may agree to call in enough medication to a local pharmacy to last until we are able to schedule an office visit (two weeks maximum). It is your responsibility to schedule an appointment before you run out of medication. You should schedule your next visit before you leave our office.
