IF YOU HAVE BEEN SEEN WITHIN THE PAST 3 MONTHS: We ask that you contact your pharmacy first if you have been seen within the past three months and require no changes to your medication. If the medication that you need to refill is a controlled substance, it will not be visible online, or through an automated phone system. You must call and ask your pharmacist to look up the prescription saved to your account.
Please allow us 48 hours to refill all prescriptions.
Kristina Garrido does not prescribe medications over the telephone. It is just not good medicine, and requires a medication check appointment every three months. Routine refills and medications called in after a recent appointment are the exceptions.
If we do not accept your insurance plan, we would be happy to walk you through the steps to complete a reimbursement request.
