Topical Prescriptions Now Available at Walk-in Dermatology

Bringing you Added Convenience for Only $49 per Prescription

Topical Prescriptions

When you choose Walk-in Dermatology for your skincare needs you can count on convenience in addition to excellent, affordable care.

A New Year brings the new launch of our in-house prescription service. Now you’ll be able to get topical prescriptions during your visit. We take care of everything right in the office.

Just think, no more time-consuming trips to the pharmacy only to find out that your prescription costs too much or isn’t even covered by your insurance. When you leave our office, you’ll be all set with a treatment plan and the topical medicines to help you see it through.

Best of all, you’ll get a great price on topical medications – and you’ll know the price up front. No more dreading a trip to the drug store, where you typically have no idea what the pharmacist is going to charge until you’re at the cash register.  At Walk-in Dermatology, all the prescriptions we carry are $49, making us not only the most convenient dermatologist in town, but also the most affordable.

According to the Journal of General Internal Medicine, nearly a third of new prescriptions are never filled. Reasons vary, but one thing they all have in common is that patients who don’t take their prescribed medications are not nearly as likely to get better as those who do.

With skin conditions, custom topical preparations are sometimes needed to address specific issues. This makes in-office prescriptions even more valuable because you can trust that you’re getting the right formulation prepared by medical professionals who focus on skincare every day.

You’ve heard it from us before and it’s part of our mission: At Walk-in Dermatology we aim to achieve “Patient Delight.”  We believe patients have a right to receive exceptional health care that’s easy to access and doesn’t empty their wallets.

100% of the prescription medicines you receive from us are produced in FDA-approved facilities. We offer formulations of the medicines you know and trust to meet an array of dermatologic conditions, including acne, eczema, melasma, rosacea, psoriasis and more.

At Walk-in Dermatology, you know that you’ll get precisely what the doctor ordered because you’ll be getting it right from your doctor.

We evaluate a patient’s needs for customized topicals and make sure to cover these important questions:

  1. Do you have sensitive skin?
  2. Do topical medicines irritate your skin?
  3. Is your condition not responding to medicine you’re currently taking?
  4. Have you had issues with insurance or high co-pays to purchase your medications?

Most prescriptions can be easily provided on your very first visit with us. And for long-term care prescriptions, we’ll match your prescription and insurance information with leading pharmacies to offer you competitive pricing. This is further assurance that you’re getting the lowest possible price for the prescriptions you need.

P.S. Many dermatology prescriptions are not covered by insurance at all. If this is the case for you, and if you stop at the pharmacy only to find out that your prescription isn’t covered (or that it will cost you hundreds of dollars), you can call our office to see if we have your prescription or a comparable prescription as part of our $49 in-office program.
