The Patterson Medical and Diagnostic Center

Medication Refills


Our practice office policy is to allow up to 24 hours to refill all prescriptions to insure your health and safety. We have a specific protocol for prescription refills that will ensure a timely response while avoiding medication errors. For routine refills, we ask that patients call their pharmacy. The pharmacy will then contact our office with an electronic refill request.

  • Please keep in mind, certain medication classifications require an office visit with your provider before the medication will be refilled.

Insurance Coverage


We accept many private and public insurances here at our office. 

Please research your insurance policy to determine network and procedure coverage. It is very important to consult your insurance provider prior to your visit at our facility to determine coverage for certain treatments such as skin biopsies, well check-ups and specific laboratory testing. Your insurance company may only cover certain blood testing and procedures once yearly.



We know your test results are important and we understand your desire to retrieve this information. Please be assured that we will contact you immediately with any significant abnormality. Please notify us if you do not receive your results within 7-10 business days.

  • Patients that have regular PT/INR testing can expect immediate results and medications can be adjusted shortly after the testing is completed.
  • Testing such as pap smears, x-rays, and  certain blood testing will take longer before results are received.
  • We offer a free online Patient Portal, please sign up with our laboratory staff during your visit. Once lab reports are available, they will appear on your patient portal account along with any notes from your provider. If you have signed up for patient portal, you may access your account here.
