Prescription Policy

It is our office policy to refill all medications during office hours only. If you call in the evenings or on the weekend, the answering service will not forward your calls to the physician on call. We need to keep an accurate record of all medications prescribed to stay within state and federal laws and prescribing guidelines. Therefore, all requests for medications must be called into our office Monday through Thursday by 1pm, and no later than 10am on Friday. All requests after this time will not be processed until the next business day. When using the PDOA prescription line you will be notified only if your request has been denied or if your prescription has to be picked up.

After hours prescription refills

No prescriptions will be filled outside normal office hours, except for emergencies. Lost prescriptions are rarely considered to be an emergency. No prescriptions for narcotic medications will be filled for patients whose medical conditions are not well known to the physician on call.

After Hours Care

If you need to contact our physicians about urgent matters after the office is closed, please call our office telephone number, which will be answered by our answering service, and the on-call physician will be given your message.

You may also choose to be seen in the emergency room, where records of your care will be forwarded to us.
