A new prescription usually requires an office visit. For prescription renewals, please call your pharmacist. Be sure to give your pharmacist the prescription number and the pharmacist will call us if necessary, for approval. You may be requested to schedule an appointment in our office if it has been too long since the original prescription. Please call before you run out of medicine. Be sure to plan ahead for weekends or travel needs. Prescriptions can be difficult or impossible to renew during a weekend when the doctor on-call does not have your medical chart.
