Prescription Renewals

Whenever possible please request prescription refills during your office visits. If you require a prescription refill between appointments, please provide a 48 hour notice. If you have not been seen recently, an office visit may be required before your medication can be refilled.

Most pharmacies have an automated telephone line that you can call to request additional refills even if your prescription bottle indicates that no refills remain. Your pharmacy will fax a request or send an electronic request directly to the physician to authorize additional refills to your doctor. A call to the office is not necessary unless your pharmacy is unable to accommodate this service.

If you call the office, please be prepared with the following information when requesting a prescription refill:

  • Pharmacy name, address and phone number
  • Medication name, dosage and directions
  • Phone number where you can be reached

Prescriptions may not be refilled by phone after hours or on the weekends, so please plan accordingly.
