The most efficient way to refill a medication is to contact your pharmacy, which will dispense the medication as long as refills remain on the current prescription. If there are no refills left on the current prescription, the pharmacy will notify your doctor’s office to request a new prescription. We require at least 3 clinic business days to process refill requests. We cannot guaranteed that your preferred pharmacy has all the medications that we prescribe in stock.
We are not a laboratory, but we do provide the service of most lab draws for our established patients. Lab services require and appointment. If you need labs, please call ahead to make sure we can draw the labs you need and to schedule your appointment.
We offer all required pediatric vaccines as well as most adult vaccines. We are unable to provide flu shots to patients under the age of 7 who are not established patients at the Girdwood Clinic. Please call the Clinic for further information about this service.
Flu and COVID vaccines are available. Depending on your insurance, there may be a cost to you. Please check with the Front Desk to understand any payment that may be required at the time of your appointment. Pediatric patients will need an appointment with their primary care provider for their flu shots.
