Prescription Refills Over the Phone:

Refill requests may be phoned in at any time to our TOUCH-TONE Mailout Prescription Refill Service. This quick and easy way to reorder refills is available 24 hours a day. Call toll free 1-800-228-5459 or 314-289-7666 and follow the recorded message to leave us your refill request. To insure you have an adequate supply of medication, it is IMPORTANT to request your refills as early as possible. Our system will fill your request for medication to arrive just in time. It's never too early to request a refill! It is important that you keep us, and the Post Office informed of your current address and take your medication as directed by your physician.

Initial Prescriptions

When you have finished the visit with your provider and medications have been ordered, your next stop may be to one of the pharmacy counseling areas located throughout the medical center. A registered pharmacist will assist you in obtaining your medication.

Your provider has entered your prescriptions into the "computer", and the pharmacist will complete the request, sending it electronically to the pharmacy. They will answer any questions you may have about your prescriptions and assist you in obtaining refills. If you wish, specialty needs may be discussed with the pharmacists who are available for personal consultations.

If you are going to take the medication home with you, it may be picked up at the pharmacy pick-up area. Your pharmacist will provide you with the approximate time they may be picked up. Patients who do not stop at one of the pharmacy counseling areas will have their medications mailed to your home address. If you leave your prescriptions for mailing, they will be delivered to your address of record as soon as appropriate. Please allow a minimum of 7-10 days for prescriptions left at the pharmacy for processing and mailing.
