Medication Check-Up with Pharmacist Bill Boyes
When prescription and over-the-counter medicines are taken in the right way, they are safe and effective tools for good health.
A Medication Check-Up provides a review of each medication (both prescription and over-the-counter) with discussion about the person’s medicine-taking routine.
