Since many patients face challenges with keeping up with all their medications, we have added a clinical pharmacist to our healthcare team here in the primary care practices. The goal of the MYMEDS program is to make sure that you are taking medication that is most effective, safest, have the lowest side effects, and when possible, the lowest out of pocket cost. Our pharmacist will also help you understand why you are taking your medications and address any questions or issues you may have with your medications.
