Prescription Medication Refills & Requests
Make Your Request
Prescriptions and refills for established patients of Women’s HealthFirst are routinely issued during our regular office hours. Regular business hours vary by location. See your preferred Women’s HealthFirst location page for its hours of operation: Barrington, Bartlett, Buffalo Grove, Hoffman Estates, or Schaumburg.
You can make your request by calling (847) 808-8884, the main phone line at Women’s HealthFirst.
Refills are generally not issued during the evenings, weekends, or holidays, as the doctors may not have access to all your medical records during those times. It is helpful to anticipate your refill needs to avoid an interruption in your medication therapy.
What to Expect
The following are helpful tips for our patients concerning medication refills and requests:
- Please allow up to 72 hours for a response to your request for a medication refill.
- Requests for narcotic and controlled substance refills are reviewed by a patient’s primary physician and are not done on weekends or after hours.
- For birth control pill refills, if you have a current Pap smear on file or your annual exam is scheduled, established patients can have their pharmacy fax a refill request to (847) 808-8890. This is not considered an emergency.
- If a medication is available over the counter, we will not write a prescription.
