We Are Here For You

Our goal is to ensure that each and every patient feels confident that their health and wellbeing is managed by a pharmacy that isn’t just delivering their medications, but is answering every question, and eliminating any concerns about their care.

As soon as your doctor sends us your prescription, we start working to get it filled right away. 

  1. You will receive a phone call from an Onco Care Coordinator
  2. They will verify and collect additional information such as height, weight, allergies, and current medications
  3. Once the Care Coordinator has the information needed and your prescription is reviewed by one of our pharmacists, your medication will be shipped, and we will send you a tracking number

Safe Handling of Medication

Chemotherapy medications are designed to kill cancer cells but may also harm normal cells in the body. It’s important that these medications are handled carefully to avoid unnecessary exposure. Some precautions to take are:

  • Wash hands before and after handling
  • Keep away from food and other household items
  • Keep away from children and pets
  • If you are a caregiver, pour pills into a small cup and hand to the patient and/or wear protective gloves, masks, glasses, etc.

Safe Disposal of Medication

Do not throw unused or expired medication into the garbage or flush it down the toilet. To find a local drug disposal near you, visit the NABP for recommendations. If a drug disposal site is not available in your area, please follow the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines for the safe disposal of unused or unwanted medications. You may also contact your state’s Board of Pharmacy as an additional resource.
