Fond du Lac Pharmacies provide prescription dispensing services and other programs that are aimed to optimize medication therapy. Pharmacy staff members use a team approach to healthcare. They are trained to provide individualized patient care and more comprehensive service than your average retail pharmacy. Pharmacy registration specialists help patients gain access to services and insurance coverage. Pharmacy technicians tailor prescription processing and billing. Pharmacists work closely with patients and medical providers to ensure that drug therapy is safe and effective.
FDL Pharmacies are able to fill prescriptions issued from FDL medical providers and providers working at other clinics, as long as the medication is on the FDL pharmacy formulary. If a medical provider prescribes a medication that is not on the formulary, the pharmacist will contact the provider to see if a substitute medication from the formulary can be used. If no substitute is available, the patient will need to purchase the mediation elsewhere.
OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS
Over-the-counter medications are available for minor acute health problems.
