How do I take my medications that have been prescribed? 

Please make sure that while in your doctor’s presence, you ask questions if you are unsure about how to take your medicine. One of our nursing staff members would also be able to help answer your questions about medications.

Our staff members in the Front Office area are not licensed medical professionals, and cannot advice on medical questions.

If you leave your appointment and still have additional questions regarding your prescriptions, please call during office hours and ask to speak with a nurse.

Additionally, your pharmacist may be able to tell you this information and answer questions or concerns about your medications.

What can I do for swelling in my feet? 

Elevate your feet and decrease salt intake.

When will I feel the baby move? 

Usually, you will feel fetal movement at or around 18 weeks gestation.

How do I treat vaginal odor?

Call and make a Gyn Problem type of appointment with Dr. Richmond to have a vaginal culture taken.

What do I do if I have frequency and burning with urination?
