SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH OUR PHARMACIST

GENE CARLSON

Hormone consultations on Bio-Identical Hormone Restoration Therapy (BHRT) can be scheduled with Gene Carlson, R.Ph. by calling (815) 795-2700

  • We will provide a hormone consultation form for you to fill out. This can be picked up at the pharmacy, mailed to you or printed from our website below. 
  • You may be asked to have your hormone levels tested either by blood (ordered by your medical provider) or saliva (kits are available at the pharmacy).
  • Please inform your medical provider that you plan on meeting with our pharmacist here at Schott's Pharmacy.
  • Once the completed form is received by the pharmacy, a consultation can be scheduled.
  • Consultations generally last 30-60 minutes in length and a consultation fee will be charged at the time of consultation. 
  • Following the consultation, our pharmacist will fax your provider a summary of the consultation and our recommendations for therapy. If your provider approves, he/she will prescribe the hormone therapy.
  • We will contact you when your provider writes a prescription for you. We will let you know when you can pick up the compounded prescription or we can mail it to you. We will consult with you on instructions for use at that time.
  • A follow-up phone call will be made by the pharmacy within the first few weeks of therapy to see how you are feeling. If modifications are necessary, we will call your medical provider to make adjustments.
