The Benefits of an On-Site Pharmacy

When you visit us at Calvary Urgent Care in Humble, Texas, chances are you’re feeling pretty miserable. Whether you or someone you love has had an accident or is suffering from an illness that couldn’t wait days or weeks for a regular doctor appointment, you come to us when you need quick and professional treatment. 

In many cases, treatment involves medication, and typically that means a trip to the pharmacy — but not when you come to Calvary Urgent Care. We have an on-site pharmacy, so you can see Joseph Goin, MD, and his team and get your medication all under one roof. Here are just a few of the advantages to having a pharmacy on-site.

Convenience

Clearly, one of the top benefits of going to an urgent-care facility with its own pharmacy is convenience. It means you don’t need to get back in your car and drive to another location to get your medication. Instead, you can go straight home and rest. 

Save money

With the cost of prescription medications steadily increasing, most of our patients appreciate knowing that our medication costs are low, and we also offer discounts. 

Save time

In addition to the time you save by cutting out an extra errand, our on-site pharmacy also saves time because the communication between doctor and pharmacist is streamlined. No more waiting for phone calls, messages, and replies back and forth from one facility to another, not to mention the additional factor of coordinating with the insurance company. Our team works together and knows your case and your insurer, so your prescription can be filled immediately.

Safer

Some drugs don’t go well with others. At the very least, one drug may make another less effective. At worst, the wrong combination can make your symptoms more severe or lead to other complications. When your doctor and your pharmacist aren’t just in the same building, but on the same team, you know that all your files and medications are shared and coordinated, so you don’t have to worry about harmful reactions. And you don’t have to rely on your memory, because we have a record of all your medications.

Better results

Your medication can only help you if you take it, and studies show that many people undermine their own health and healing by not taking their medication properly. In the medical field, we call this nonadherence, and it comes in three types:

While we can’t make you take your medicine, we can provide full-service support so you leave here fully informed and prepared to get the most out of your prescription. And if you have any questions, we’re here to help. 

You have easy access to our medical and pharmacy teams, so you can rest assured that any concerns about what’s normal, possible reactions, missed doses, dosage frequency, or refills can be resolved quickly and professionally.

We hope you never need urgent care, but if and when you do, we’re here for you, ready to provide complete health care, including medications. To find out more about our services or our on-site pharmacy, call our office or schedule an appointment online today. We’d love to meet you.
