In order to determine a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, it is essential that we are informed of all medications you are presently taking. For this reason, we ask that all patients please bring all medication bottles, (both prescribed and over the counter, including vitamins and supplements from health food stores) with them to their first appointment. 



In order for clinicians to provide quality care and adequate monitoring, even those patients prescribed stable medications will need to schedule a follow-up visit at least once every 3 months, unless otherwise directed. 

Even if you have no refills left on the bottle, please call your pharmacy directly for refillable medication requests (such as Prozac, Celexa, Zoloft, Strattera, Wellbutrin, etc.) 

If you have recently had an appointment with your clinician, they will likely have sent an electronic refill to your pharmacy. Please speak to a pharmacy staff person, and ask if there are any stored prescriptions already in your file. If no prescription refills are on file, the pharmacy will contact our office with the necessary information. You should call your pharmacy when you are down to a 5 - 7 day supply of your medication. 

Most pharmacies conveniently now accept electronic prescriptions for controlled medications (such as ADHD medication, Ambien, Klonopin, etc.) These prescriptions will likely be signed electronically and sent to the pharmacy by the clinician at the end of each work day. Please contact your pharmacy the following morning to verify the prescription was received. Please call to inform us if the prescription was not received however. 

If your pharmacy does not accept controlled medication prescriptions electronically, you will need a paper prescription. This must either be picked up at our office, or mailed to your home. 


Instructions for leaving a request on the prescription refill line: 

  • Speak slowly and clearly

  • State your name, the name of the patient (with spelling), and the name of the patient's clinician

  • Leave a phone number where you can be reached during the day

  • State the name and strength of the medication(s) and the current directions (e.g., Concerta 18mg, 1 tab every morning) 

  • Provide the name and location of the pharmacy to which the prescription should be sent

  • For ADHD meds (except Strattera), state whether the prescription is to be sent electronically, mailed to your home, or picked up at the office.
