- Blood thinners
- Lung disease (like asthma or COPD)
- Tobacco cessation (single and group sessions)
- Chronic pain or long-term opioid use
- And multiple other conditions
- Pharmacotherapy can also help with the following situations related to medicines:
- Side-effects and intolerances
- Drug timing and interactions
- Insurance problems or costly medicines
- Multiple medicines or “polypharmacy”
- Reducing medicines or “de-prescribing”
- Personal testing for how genes and drugs interact
Visits with a pharmacotherapist focus on the results and benefits of your medications. Find peace of mind as you discuss concerns you may be experiencing with a medication expert.
Most insurance plans recognize the benefit of Pharmacotherapy visits and offer the same coverage as a primary care visit.
If you are interested in making an appointment, please discuss with your primary care provider how a pharmacotherapist will fit into your care team.
