Covid 19 update - Dr. Goldstein is seeing all patients virtually until further notice
We understand how difficult it is to keep track of busy schedules, appointments, prescriptions and refills. We never want you or your child to run out of medication - we will do our best to respond quickly to all requests. Please provide complete information about the medication you need refilled so there is no delay.
In October 2019 Pennsylvania mandated electronic prescribing of controlled substances. It only takes about 10 minutes to set this up, and is mandatory for all prescriptions.
Research shows that even when children appear to be stable, they have a better response to ADHD medication when they are monitored with monthly visits! And, Children starting an antidepressant should be seen weekly for the first month.Visits will become less frequent when you or your child are stable on your medication.
If you need a refill between visits, please try to allow 1 week. YOU must request the refill - please do not depend on your pharmacy to request a refill or a new prescription. This is too often not accurate.
If your pharmacy tells you your medicine is not available, please call multiple pharmacies to see where it is in stock. This is also a good way to price shop - try GoodRx or another service that might offers significant discounts.
Before you ask me to write "Name Brand Only" please confirm that you are willing to pay the sometimes substantially greater cost.
