FAQs+ When my doctor calls in a prescription, what should I do?
Upon receiving a prescription, it is reviewed by one of our pharmacists. A customer care representative will contact you within 24 hours to review the prescription, obtain some basic information and discuss payment/shipping options with you. If you have not heard from us, please feel free to call us.
Just let us know this is your preference and we’ll take care of it. Our pharmacist will then call your doctor or the pharmacy where your prescription currently is to have it transferred to Stokes. Read more details here.
Stokes Pharmacy is not contracted with any prescription plan. If you would like to seek reimbursement for your compounded medication, please contact your prescription plan for information.
The time to fill/make each individual prescription varies. We recommend you place your order as soon as possible to ensure sufficient compounding time. Most orders will be shipped the same day the order is placed with a few exceptions. Please provide your e-mail address, and you will be notified once your order is available to ship. If you are a local client and would like to pick-up your prescription, we will call you as soon as it is ready.
Please Note: Upon receiving a prescription / refill from your doctor, we will first get your approval before filling the prescription unless otherwise specified.
You can bring the prescription in, fax it to 800-440-5899 or have your physician phone it in. We will then contact you with a price. Questions? Please contact one of our customer care representatives at (800)754-5222.

Yes, we’d be happy to contact your doctor when your prescription requires renewal. Please note that refill authorization response time from doctors’ offices may vary.
