What happens following my minor ailment assessment?

If a self-diagnosis is reasonable, a pharmacist can initiate a prescription, dispense the medication, and follow up accordingly to monitor the prescription outcomes and offer guidance as needed. If the pharmacist is unable to confirm the diagnosis or if the patient’s symptoms are severe, the pharmacist may refer you to your physician. Our goal is to ensure the best health outcome for you. We are here to advise you and to navigate you through the best treatment options available for your self-limiting concerns

Whether you have questions about your prescription medications, over-the-counter products, immunizations, or other health concerns, our pharmacists are here to help.
