General Guidelines

Medications

The fastest way to secure your medication refill may be through your pharmacy. Check with your preferred pharmacy to determine if you have additional refills available to you.

If you require a medication refill from your provider, requests will be reviewed and responded to by the end of the next business day. Please note that certain classes of medications may require authorization from your insurance provider or have additional delays associated with them. Discuss any special requirements for refills with your provider to plan appropriately.

Phone Calls

Non-urgent calls will be returned by the end of next business day. Urgent calls will be returned on the same business day in the order they are received. After-hours calls will be handled efficiently and effectively by our answering service or an on-call physician.

Forms

Forms received by the clinical staff will be processed and returned within 10 business days. Some forms may have an associated fee. Please check with your clinic staff for details.
