If you require a refill on a current medication, please call your pharmacy first to check if you have any refills remaining on your prescription. Although we try our best to have prescription renewals processed, it could take up to 48 hours for your prescription to be refilled, therefore, please do not wait until you are out of your medication.
Depending on the length of time your physician has seen you, you may be required to schedule an office visit and have labs drawn for new scripts written on certain medications. If you have not been seen within a specified period of time, you will receive notification that you are due for an office visit. If you are not able to make your visit, we may reduce your medication or deny the refill altogether; no exceptions.
Please be advised that due to a change in Federal Regulations, all medications that contain hydrocodone will become Schedule II controlled substances as of October 6, 2014. This means that if your prescription medication contains hydrocodone, refills are no longer allowed and a new, written prescription from your doctor is required. Kristin Schmidt, MD, PLLC has a very strict and conservative view when prescribing narcotics and controlled substances. We do not prescribe these medications on a routine, ongoing or long-term basis. These medications are prescribed only during office visits and will not be refilled unless necessity is determined by your physician; please do not ask our physicians to deviate from this policy.
