Convenience and Affordability Using Our Pharmacy
Usually, when your doctor prescribes a medicine, you have to wait for your pharmacy to fill the prescription. However, at Simple Primary Care Solutions in Edmond, Oklahoma, Steven King, DO, can dispense certain medications for your convenience. Dr. King provides a convenient and affordable pharmaceutical service to help make health care more convenient for you.
How can my doctor dispense pharmaceuticals?
You may have thought that you need to go to your local pharmacy to have your prescription filled. However, in Oklahoma, physicians such as Dr. King at Simple Primary Care Solutions are allowed to dispense medications from their offices.
By keeping a stock of medications, Dr. King can ensure you receive exactly what he prescribes. He can talk to you about how and when to take the medicine and answer any questions you have at the time.
In addition to providing medicines that you take orally, Dr. King can also prescribe and dispense topical and injectable medication. For example, he can give corticosteroid joint injections to reduce the swelling and pain of arthritis as well as topical treatments for eczema and other skin conditions.
What are the benefits of getting my prescription from my doctor?
Convenience and affordability are the two primary benefits of the in-office pharmaceutical dispensing service at Simple Primary Care Solutions. You don’t have to make a separate trip to a pharmacy and waste time waiting around to fill your prescription. Also, Dr. King can offer many medicines at much more affordable prices. If you are on as little as two or three medications, Dr. King may be able to prescribe a generic medication at his office that can save enough money to cover a large portion of your monthly membership fee!
You also benefit from the opportunity to ask Dr. King about the medication. You may have questions about side effects or whether or not you should take the medication with food.
