How do I refill my medications?
We know that getting medication refilled is very important to all of our patents, so we try to maintain the fastest turn around times possible. We have a large volume of refill requests for our patients, so we ask that you request refills as soon as you know that you are running out of medicine. Here are the steps that you should follow when requesting refills:
First, consider whether you need a follow-up appointment or not. Many times we plan for your medication to run out of refills when we expect that you should have returned for a follow-up appointment.
All patients taking daily medications need to be seen in the office every three months. If you are overdue for an appointment, please call our office to make an appointment, 708-524-1747.
Next, you need to call the pharmacy and ask them to electronically request a refill of your medication. When we receive the request, we will review your chart before sending the refill. If you are on time with your follow-up appointments, we will send more refills directly to your pharmacy. If you are overdue for a follow-up appointment, we will give you a one month supply of your medications in order to allow you time to be seen.
What’s the medication “call-in” policy? What about narcotics?
We do not call in most medications, as this is not good medical practice. If you are not feeling well you need to be seen in the office to be treated. We DO NOT call in narcotics. Refills on pain medications require an office visit.
How do I get my lab results?
A majority of labs are received in office within 24 hours. We will post all labs to the patient portal as well as send a letter in the mail to the address on file within 24 hours. If the labs are abnormal and Dr. Grant would like to discuss further with you, we will call you to schedule an appointment.
How do I get a referral for a specialist?
We ask that you please schedule an appointment in our office in order for Dr. Grant to do an exam as well as order any testing needed prior to issuing a referral.
What hospital affiliations do you have if I need to be admitted to the hospital?
Dr. Grant maintains privileges at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, Rush Oak Park Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, and West Suburban Medical Center.
Can you treat my whole family or do I need a pediatrician?
