Medical care and treatment options can be very overwhelming and complicated for many people but it’s important to understand your condition and medications, so we offer private consultations to help patients navigate this complex process. Pharmacists are some of the most accessible healthcare professionals and can offer a wide range of services to their patients. One of the most commonly performed services is a private consultation.
What is a private consultation?
During your private consultation, your pharmacist will discuss your personal health and wellness in a confidential setting. Generally, the session focuses on providing information related to a recently prescribed medication; however, these sessions are driven by you, the patient, so they can be tailored to your individual health care needs.
A private consultation typically starts with a short review of your medical history and then moves into medication specific topics, including the purpose of the prescribed product, proper administration of the medication, special directions for use, proper storage, length of time the product may be used, refill instructions, common adverse effects seen with the medication, and things to avoid while taking the product.
While private consultations may frequently be performed when starting a new medication, they can also be done at any point in time and can cover a wide range of topics. If you have general questions about your health or chronic disease or want to learn more about different treatment options, including compounded products, natural and herbal medications, or supplements, your pharmacist can work with you to discuss each of these.
Our comprehensive approach to care means that our pharmacists are ready and willing to provide information, guidance, and support around managing your health and resolving issues.
