For prescription refills, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the patient's name, address, date of birth, name and dosage of medication, how many are taken per day, and the pharmacy name, phone number, and address. All of that information is needed each time. Refills will be processed within 48-72 hours during the week and within 72 hours on weekends or when I am out of town.
Please note that controlled medications for ADHD such as Concerta, Adderall, Focalin, Daytrana, or Vyvanse cannot be phoned in, but can now be transmitted electronically if the doctor has the right software, which I do. Most local pharmacies and mail order pharmacies (with the possible exception of Optum) are certified to do this. To obtain an ADHD refill, please provide ALL of the information as noted above. Smaller pharmacies such as Tuxedo, Wender & Roberts, and McKinney's Pharmacy have consistently been the best and most knowledgeable. CVS, in my experience, is the most likely to tell you that "the doctor never called it in".
Due to a high volume of refills, emergency requests for prescriptions are highly discouraged and will carry a processing fee, as will phone requests or replacement of lost prescriptions.
