More than seamless prescription pickup

At Rutland Medical Pharmacy, they offer a comprehensive range of services to cater to your health needs, such as prescription renewals, medication management, immunization, vacation preparation, mental health support and much more.

They wholeheartedly strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere by taking the time to genuinely get to know each person on a personal level.

To protect your privacy, they also have a dedicated consultation room where pharmacists can assist patients with their medical queries in a discreet setting and even prescribe some medications for minor ailments such as urinary tract infections, allergies and fungal infections.

Furthermore, they are partnered with virtual doctors to streamline the process of connecting patients with healthcare providers. This innovative approach eliminates the need for patients to visit a walk-in or urgent care clinic which tend to have longer wait times.

These virtual doctors can also fax prescriptions directly to the pharmacy, ensuring a seamless experience for every customer.
