We ask patients to request prescription refills in a timely manner, and schedule appointments ahead of time to avoid any lapse in medication. We reserve priority scheduling of Same Day appointments for patients with acute health concerns until 10:30 am. After 10:30am we will release any available appointments for non-acute matters.
There are several factors to consider, such as if the prescription is new or a refill, how long it’s been since you were seen, or if it is an ongoing problem or new symptoms. Often, the provider will want to see you ensure you are receiving the right medication. These decisions are made based on what is in the best medical interest of the patient.
