If you’re tired of waiting in line to fill a prescription and want more than pharmacy staff who don’t know you from the next person in line, you’ll appreciate the personalized difference at the on-site pharmacy at Southwest Family Medicine Associates. Their in-house pharmacy, managed by Patrick Kokelu, is just one way they meet the goal of providing complete health care services in one place. If you have any health questions, please call the Dallas office, or schedule an appointment online for a consultation.
The staff at Southwest Family Medicine Associates firmly believes in giving patients holistic and comprehensive care, which includes going the distance to offer services like an on-site pharmacy.
Convenience is one of the biggest reasons for providing an pharmacy at the office. You can fill your prescription and pick up your medication right after your appointment rather than making an extra stop and waiting in line at another pharmacy.
Personalized care is another vital difference you gain when using the on-site pharmacy. Pharmacy staff are part of the medical team, which means they’re interested in your well-being, and they can communicate directly with other team members to ensure you get the medications and support you need.

You should also completely understand potential side effects and when to call pharmacy staff if you suspect a problem. Pharmacy personnel take the time to talk with you, explain your medication, and answer your questions.

Staff at the on-site pharmacy work with you to be sure you don’t have any problems that may prevent you from getting the medication that’s important for your health. They understand that there are many possible roadblocks, so please don’t hesitate talk with them about any problem, including:
