Prescription Renewal Requests 

During these exceptional circumstances with COVID-19, we ask that if you need prescription renewal you contact your pharmacy and have them fax our office. You do not need to call our office to ask for one. Our usual policy will likely take into effect once the COVID precautions are lifted which is an annual check in for medication review in person with your physician.
