Forms can be dropped off at the front desk. We try to get these done as quickly as possible but some forms such as FMLA, Disability or Life insurance may take up to 5 days to be completed. Please be aware that some paperwork may require an appointment with your provider for completion.
9HOW CAN I GET A REFILL ON MY PRESCRIPTION?
The best way is to request one from your provider while you are at your visit OR contact your pharmacy before your medication runs out and ask them to send us a refill request. Your medical record will be reviewed before issuing refills to insure you have followed up with your provider as necessary. Some refill requests may require an appointment with your provider, but we will provide a two week extension to give you time to make an appointment. NARCOTIC prescriptions will only be filled during a visit with the doctor. All new medications will require a visit with the provider.
