As part of each patient’s health care team, a clinical pharmacist is available to meet one-on-one with the patient in a private setting. This service is covered by most insurance companies and is available on a sliding fee scale for those without insurance. Clinical pharmacists work with each patient and his/her providers to develop an individualized medication plan. Clinical pharmacists help patients manage their medications by addressing things like cost issues, total number of pills prescribed, side effects, drug interactions, and monitoring and dealing with multiple medical providers. Pharmacists are part of the patient’s medical team and help manage many chronic diseases, including: Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and Hepatitis C, as well as other conditions such as Anxiety and Depression. Any action items or issues are immediately addressed by the patient’s medical team. Everyone is eligible for Clinical Pharmacy services. Appointments are available with the pharmacist by calling the health center’s scheduling department.
