As part of your wellness and/or treatment plan, Garcia OB/GYN Associates may recommend prescription medications. We will discuss all prescriptions with you, including both intended outcomes and potential side effects. Medications we commonly prescribe are:
- Birth control
- Hormone therapy and/or replacement
- Pain management
- Antibiotics and/or anti-fungals
- High-blood pressure
In most cases, our doctors are licensed to prescribe medications through our cost-effective online system. Established patients may request prescription refills through our convenient online request form. Patients must be up-to-date on their regular wellness exams and should be able to provide pharmacy information at the time of request. We will fulfill qualified requests, typically within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. Certain prescriptions may require authorization from your physician, which may prompt a follow-up phone call or office visit.
In addition, at the time of your office visit, we may be able to dispense prescriptions intended for certain treatments (such as oral contraceptives, blood medications, and some maintenance medication as those listed above, which often require refills). Our practice can also dispense prescriptions at the time of your office visit for the treatment of certain acute ailments such as urinary tract infections and vaginitis.
