Prescription Refills

“All I need is a prescription refill, Doc…”
For prescriptions for long term medication for conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes, our usual practice is to give enough refills to last until the time that your condition is due to be reassessed by us. These types of conditions need periodic evaluation (often including lab work, etc) to ensure that the condition is properly controlled and that there are no complications. The seemingly simple task of writing a prescription refill is only a small part of what we need to do to determine whether your condition is being well-controlled, what tests may be due, and whether a change of treatment is needed This always takes up a whole visit, and cannot be done at the tail end of a visit that you have booked for other reasons. Also, this obviously cannot be done over the phone, which is the reason why our clinic does not do phone refills. Thank you for understanding.
