Now Offering Prescriptions!
We are very excited to announce that we have partnered with an FDA approved Pharmaceutical facility to produce our very own Dr. Monica Scheel Dermatology compounded prescriptions!
In the 10 years that we have been in practice, we have seen more and more that insurance companies dictate how diagnoses are treated and how big pharmacy companies drastically increase prices on medications that have been around for decades without much change in formulation. The vision for our practice has always been Genuine Caring and to not be bound by insurance companies or pharmaceutical companies telling us how to treat our patients. It is this same line of thinking as to why our full skin checks range from 30-45 minutes and we offer a wide range of state of the art technology options for care of specific conditions.
Needless to say we are shocked and disheartened in the dramatic increase in cost to our patients for prescriptions that were at a reasonable price point in the recent past. Insurance has been covering less and less for dermatologic prescriptions and pharmaceutical companies have been increasing medication costs (in some instances up to 800% increase in a year) leaving the financial burden to the patient. We want to offer an effective, reasonable option for those prescriptions that have become a financial burden to our patients and to ensure that our patients receive the best care that we can recommend for them.
We have proudly partnered with an FDA approved Pharmaceutical facility, Prescriber’s Choice to produce 17 custom blended compound prescriptions that cannot be prescribed or purchased anywhere else. Our prescription topical treatments that are comprised of higher quality ingredients than what you receive at the pharmacy and often cost less than current co-pays for similar medications (all of our prescriptions are $45!). Additionally, we dispense all medication in-house so you will leave your appointment with the prescription in hand! No more standing in line at the pharmacy and no more denials of your needed medication!
The compounds and ingredients were specifically chosen by our providers based on what our patients need most, what is the most safe and gentle and what has become cost ineffective in recent years. We do not offer medications that can be purchased from the pharmacy at a lower cost. Our goal is truly to provide our patients with high-quality, low-cost solutions.
Some of the conditions we can treat with our medications are:
- Nail fungus
- Alopecia/Hair loss
- Seborrheic Dermatitis/Dandruff
- Scar Treatment
- Stubborn acne/Acne rosacea
It should be noted that we in no way receive any type of perks, rebates or kickbacks from any pharmaceutical company by offering our own prescriptions. It’s quite the opposite actually. We are going against the grain and traditional insurance dictated treatment options by offering in-house dispensing of medication because we feel very strongly this is the best option for our patients. Our patients best interest has always been at the forefront of our treatments offerings.
You will need an appointment with a medical provider for your initial prescription to evaluate your condition but once you’ve been prescribed your cream/lotion/gel/shampoo, you will leave with it that day and prescriptions can be refilled over the phone or shipped it to your door.
