We strive to have all new prescriptions ready as soon as possible.  Occassionally, certain circumstances may preclude the timely preparation of your prescription.  Reasons for delay might include needing to compound your prescription, to request refill authorization, or to clarify the details of your prescription with the prescriber, for examples.

For medications to be mailed: Prescriptions being mailed will require pre-payment by credit card, check, or money order.  Please allow shipping time for your request!  When calling, please be prepared to provide us with billing information.
