When it comes to your health and wellness, it can be difficult and scary to try something new. You are so used to obtaining a prescription from your doctor, waiting in line at the pharmacy, manually sorting your pills, scheduling your refills, and restarting the process again.
This is the process you have always known and probably the only process you thought was even possible. At Oak Lawn Pharmacy, we are making it easier for you to have your medications handled conveniently and securely. Following your appointments, we will conduct a quick phone consultation with you and then work with your doctor directly to fill your prescriptions and consolidate your medications, taking the hassle out of managing your medications.
Our process as a local, independently-owned pharmacy, is safer than that of many of the larger mail-order pharmacies.
However, there are a lot of misconceptions about the way our pharmacy’s Rx Med Pack service works. Here are seven misconceptions we’ve debunked:
1. Rx Med Packaging Is Expensive
Our Rx Med Pack service is actually free, you just pay your standard co-pay to get started. Each patient even receives one free delivery per month. Any additional delivery within the same month is a $10 delivery fee. Same-day delivery is also available for an additional cost to most in the DFW area.
2. Our Medications Are Not Safe
Each Rx Med Pack is completely safe and secure. At Oak Lawn Pharmacy, we put our years of experience as a trusted local North Texas pharmacy to work to ensure you receive your medications quickly, accurately, and efficiently. Every month, our team will include a detailed list of your medications and dosage instructions with your shipment.
We have a team of medical professionals on-hand to oversee your prescriptions. Throughout our packaging process, our pharmacists will inspect every Rx Med Pack at multiple checkpoints to ensure complete accuracy. Our pharmacy is also regulated and regularly inspected to ensure we meet the highest standards.
3. Delivery Takes Too Long
Deliveries to the DFW area are usually overnight with the exception of Saturday and Sunday. If you are outside of the DFW area, deliveries may take three to four business days. We use third-party courier services as well as USPS, and we deliver to any address in Texas.
If you are planning a trip and your current supply of medications will run out while you are away, you can discuss your needs with a member of the pharmacy staff. In special circumstances , early refills may be requested through your payer.
We also know that emergencies happen and that there will be times when you need medications immediately. Our North Texas pharmacy can send any urgent medicine you need right away. Notify us when you are low on any of your meds and we can ship them to you in bottles before your Rx Med Pack ships.
4. You Can’t Fill All of My Medication Needs
Whether you need vitamins, supplements, or over-the-counter (OTC) medications, we can handle it all. It doesn’t matter how many medications you take or how many different types of supplements you need, we can include vitamins and OTCs with your order every time. We will coordinate all of it so you never have to leave your home searching for the right vitamins again.
5. You Will Not Be Able to Sync All My Medications
Do you have multiple types of medications that refill at different times of the month, causing you to make multiple trips to the pharmacy? That’s not a problem! Once we have all of your prescriptions, we will work out partial supplies so that all of your medications will sync to be refilled on the same day. This will limit the trips or deliveries needed for your medication refills and also allow us to put your medications into an Rx Med Pack if requested.
6. It’s Difficult to Set Up
You might be surprised to discover how easy it is to start using Oak Lawn Pharmacy’s Rx Med Pack service. Simply get in touch with our pharmacists so we can gather some general information. From there, we will obtain your insurance and doctor’s information, then coordinate all the details while you rest and relax.
You also don’t have to worry about setting up your service or transferring your prescriptions. After you send us your information, we take care of the rest. It’s really that easy!
7. I Can’t Talk to a Real Pharmacist
With Oak Lawn Pharmacy, you will not be forced to speak with robots or spend hours on hold waiting to speak with a real person. Ordering your medications is always easy, quick, and convenient, but if you need to speak with a pharmacist, our expert medical team is on-hand to help.
At Oak Lawn Pharmacy, you can effortlessly sign up for the Rx Med Pack service and also phone our friendly pharmacists during business hours for anything else you might need. Just give us a call at 214-954-7389.
