IMPORTANT OFFICE UPDATES
Pain Medication Refills
The State of Ohio has made several changes in
how pain medications
are prescribed and how they are allowed to be refilled. Most
pain medications will no longer be able to be called in to the
pharmacy. They will NOW
REQUIRE a physician's signature which is NOT
always possible the day of the request. Please do not call
on Fridays, expecting them to be refilled that day.
Physicians go to
surgery and are not always available to sign prescriptions.
refill of a pain medication is needed, please contact the office 2 to 3
days prior to needing a refill to insure that you will receive your
medication without delay. PLEASE
KEEP THIS IN MIND. NO PRESCRIPTIONS WILL BE FILLED AFTER HOURS, ON
WEEKENDS, OR HOLIDAYS! We apologize for any inconvenience
that this new state legislation causes you.
Orthopaedic Surgeons has a patient portal that allows you to request
appointments, setup appointment reminders, email your provider,
complete office forms online and much more. Ask our office staff
to register you for our patient portal when visiting our office.
