Evaluation and guidance from pharmacists to optimize your treatment.
If your doctors have prescribed multiple medications or you have been diagnosed with a chronic health condition requiring medications, you may benefit from evaluation and counseling from the clinical pharmacists at Memorial Hospital’s Medication Therapies Center.
It’s often confusing to manage multiple medications, and to correctly follow the instructions written on each prescription label. Other factors such as your diet, exercise habits, and taking vitamins, supplements, and other medications can affect how well your medications work or interact.
When you meet with our pharmacist, he or she will evaluate your medication regimen to determine if there are conflicts. The pharmacist will work with you to develop a customized plan that you can understand and follow, to maximize your health benefits. You will also receive lifestyle education information that will support your treatment.

A physician referral is required for your initial appointment. Reports are sent to your doctor following each visit.
