    2. Press Option 1. Leave your medication request and any additional details we need to be aware of on our medication refill line.
    3. Once your prescription has been approved by your physician, a staff member will contact you when it’s available for pick-up.
    4. Please do not contact the office multiple times to inquire about your refill until after at least 48 hours. This allows our office sufficient time to process your refill request(s).
