Here at Arlington Family Practice our Physicians provide quality preventive medicine and preventive health care. When the Providers prescribe a medication to a patient, they need to monitor your condition and make sure that your medicine is effective for both you and your condition. This is done for the sole purpose of ensuring the quality of your overall health.
Our office policy allows us to deny any requests for refills unless the patient has a follow up appointment scheduled. In the event that a patient in out of medication and an appointment is scheduled within 4 days, the physician will approve a refill that will last until your next scheduled appointment. However, if that appointment is canceled after receiving the short term refill, future refills will only be filled at the time of your next appointment.
Prescription refills that are called into the office by the patient or your pharmacy require at least 48 hours to process. All prescription medicine refill requests are accepted during our normal business hours. Requests left with our off hours service will not be filled.
Please be aware that there are multiple ways for getting your prescriptions. Some options may be: a 30-day supply sent to your local pharmacy; a 90-day supply that you pick up at your local pharmacy; or a 90-day supply that is sent to your home through a mail-order pharmacy. Please make sure that you specify this information when requesting a refill. We will do our best to make sure we honor those requests.
