We prefer you make an appointment with your practitioner to get your prescriptions renewed. Every time you pick up your medication at the pharmacy, check to see if you have any refills left on the prescription. (This is also recorded on the prescription label—if it says REP (for repetition) or Refill (0) please call us to book an appointment to renew your medication). The sooner you call to make an appointment, the more flexibility you have in getting an appointment that meets your needs.
Meeting with your practitioner will ensure that your medications are at the appropriate dosage. We prefer not to arrange for prescription renewals over the phone (ie without an assessment) as this does not allow us to ensure safe, effective and high-quality medical care. For many medications, it is important to have regular lab-work completed to determine the appropriate dosage. An appointment should be made for this lab-work as well.
