Clients and Families:
the best quality of care, we ask that you please note our policy regarding
will only be provided at appointments.
- If an
appointment is canceled or missed, one courtesy refill will
be provided for each medication. These courtesy refill prescriptions,
with only a few exceptions, will be provided on Thursday. No additional
prescriptions will be provided until the next appointment.
- If a
prescription is lost, damaged or rendered unusable, a refill will
be issued on the following Thursday only after a written explanation
regarding why the refill is required has been received by our office.
This explanation must be signed by the legal guardian/client, and
you can fax it to 404-712-2378.
refills will be provided at each appointment to last until the next
appointment. Each prescription that you receive will have the number
of refills clearly marked. When you give the prescription to the pharmacist,
it is helpful to point out the number of refills. When you pick up
your medication, please check to be certain that the bottle
is labeled with the correct number of refills. If your prescription
is written for the correct number of refills and you accept a bottle
with the label showing no refills or an incorrect number of refills,
you will need to rectify that discrepancy with your pharmacist. Another
prescription will not be provided.
remember that by law, stimulant medications cannot be called in to
pharmacies. You must pick up prescriptions to take to your pharmacy.
- No prescriptions
will be mailed.
keep up with your prescriptions carefully and ask for a refill at least
one week before the medication runs out.
