Long-Term Drug Therapy Management

Take Control of Your Health Care

Most patients aren’t aware that in addition to filling prescriptions and counseling medications, pharmacists can actually improve and personalize the service they get from primary health providers.

When a doctor writes a prescription after an office visit, he or she may not take the time to discuss the medication with a patient in detail. That can leave patients with lingering some cost concerns, as well as uncertainty as to recommended regimens, delivery form and timing of dosages.  And to ensure a medication is working as planned, it must be later assessed for effectiveness.

As a patient of Dial Drugs Specialty Pharmacy you don’t have to live with that uncertainty. Bring your concerns to one of our pharmacists, who can help clarify those unknowns, communicating with your heath provider to tailor recommendations and guidance that incorporates your specific situation and needs. Our team will stay in touch periodically through your treatment to ensure you’re getting the care you need.
