Prescriptions

The pharmacy fills prescriptions from any (on- or off-campus) physician, dentist, or other medical provider. We accept prescriptions over the telephone and via fax directly from your provider's office, when legally permissible. At your request, the pharmacy can also call your provider's office for refills or new prescriptions and it can call other pharmacies to transfer your prescription(s) to our pharmacy.

A pharmacist is available to discuss your medication with you - it is important to communicate before you medicate.
