55 percent of Americans regularly take a prescription medicine — and they’re taking more than ever. Those who use a prescription drug take four, on average, and many also take over-the-counter drugs, vitamins and other dietary supplements, for their chronic diseases or conditions. Medication Therapy Management (MTM) is a service we provide our patients so they can get a deeper understanding of their medication/supplement regimen. During a typical medication review, your on-on-one visit with our clinical pharmacists helps you gain knowledge of your medications and how they affect your health.
A typical pharmacy will simply fill your medications and look for drug interactions. We take a personalized approach and explore the root causes of what is going on with your health and function. Many things can’t be “fixed” in just one visit. There are often follow up appointments needed to ensure that our patients are on the right track to success.
Our clinical pharmacists are trained in the management of many chronic disease states such as: diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, asthma/COPD and heart failure. With the right guidance, we hope to give our patients the tools and confidence needed to take their health back!
