Proper management of your medications is important to your Care Plan. It is our goal to work with you to maintain an accurate medication list and keep you educated about their interactions, side effects, and effectiveness when taken correctly.
We require you to bring in your medications in their original pill bottles in order to verify the name of the medication, the dosage and the frequency, and if any additional medications have been added. We also like for you to bring in any pain medication you may be taking, as certain types of medications will not be available in the Surgery Center.
Lakewood ASC is not a dispensing pharmacy and is compliant with Electronic Prescription requirements, therefore:
- Only prescribed medications related to your procedure will be provided.
- Refills will not be provided. If you need a refill the pharmacist is in the best position to safely and accurately coordinate the request with your provider.
- If your prescription has expired, contact your provider as an office visit may be required to process a new prescription.
- If your prescription medication requires authorization from your insurance or you use a mail order pharmacy, allow at least 30 days for this process to be completed.
Thank you for your cooperation, as it is our goal to keep everyone informed, and educated to provide the best informed and accurate care to you.
