Providing the highest quality of professional care to our patients is very important to us.
The following guidelines for dispensing medications in our office has been established.
1. TruCare does not offer pain medication to new patients until diagnosis has been made and doctor finds it necessary. We
will request records from prior doctors before decision can be made. Otherwise, if you are in need of this type of
medication we will provide you with a referral for Pain Management.
2. If you are on a medication that requires a refills, you will be given ample refills for 30 or 90 days during your office visit.
a. When you are down to a 30 day supply of medication, we ask that you call and schedule your follow-up office visit if not already scheduled to be evaluated and have your medications adjusted or refilled. We ask that you allow enough time for us to make an appointment so you're not without your medication.
3. For the safety and well-being of our patients, requests for new medications (including antibiotics) and medication refills
will not be taken over the phone or over the internet during office hours without and appointment and evaluation by the physician.
We ask you allow plenty of time to get to the office for your appointment. You will be asked to reschedule your appointment if you are more than 15 minutes late. We will strive to stay on time. From time to time, a patient emergency arises and we may be running late for your visit. You will have the option to reschedule or stay to be seen and we will keep you informed of how long of a delay you may experience.
Our office policy for missed appointments is:
If it is an appointment for a new patient the appointment will not be rescheduled if it was no showed. You must have canceled 24 hours in advance.
Three (3) no show appointments will result in a $25 appointment hold fee to schedule your appointment. This fee will be refunded to you when you show for the scheduled appointment. If you do not show, your monies are forfeited and dismissal letter will be sent out to you.
We understand that appointments sometimes need to be changed, we ask that you call in advance if you cannot keep your scheduled appointment.
