Medication Management

The cost of medicine is a very important factor in today's economy. During the first visit, the doctor will review all the medications the patient is taking. If there is an option in treatment and if it is ok with the patient, the cheapest medication will be selected. Sometimes this step is able to save a considerable amount of money in insurance copayments.

  1. Call your pharmacy and ask them to send Dr. Postigo a request for the medication you need.  (best option)

  2. Ask for the prescriptions during your medical visit with the doctor. (If the first option does not apply)

 

It can take up to 3 days to refill a medication. Please plan accordingly and contact your pharmacy in advance.
