Pharmacy Services Q & A

What are pharmacy services?

At Lake Family Medicine & Imaging, Dr. Kandavanam provides onsite pharmacy services, allowing you to pick up your medication right away. The practice keeps a variety of medicines in stock and a licensed medical professional dispenses your prescription. 

Medication is a critical part of treating many health problems. While lifestyle modifications can enhance your health and help regulate some conditions, you might need medication to improve and protect your health. 

Dr. Kandavanam often incorporates prescription medications into treatment plans for diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, thyroid disease, depression, and asthma. He can also prescribe medicine like antibiotics and corticosteroids to treat illness. 

What are the benefits of in-office pharmacy services?

Convenience is the primary benefit of the in-office pharmacy services at Lake Family Medicine & Imaging. If Dr. Kandavanam prescribes medication, you can collect it from the in-office pharmacy instead of having to drop off and pick up prescriptions at another location. 

You save time and money by only having to make one trip for your health care needs, and you can start taking your prescription right away. The in-office pharmacy reduces your risk of forgetting to pick up a prescription or not having time to make an additional trip. 

If you have questions about your prescription, you can ask Dr. Kandavanam or another member of the clinical team before you leave the office and return to your regular activities. 

Lake Family Medicine & Imaging is committed to providing convenient, personalized care to help you and your family stay healthy. In-office pharmacy services are just one part of their comprehensive approach to primary care.
