It’s very important that you request your prescription refills during normal business hours before 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Prescriptions will not be refilled on weekends or holidays. We do not accept prescription refill requests from pharmacies.

You can request a refill on the MyCovenantHealth Patient Portal or by calling our office.

Go to MyCovenantHealth

Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets patients receive medical care virtually without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

You can schedule a virtual appointment by calling our office or by requesting a visit through our secure patient portal, MyCovenantHealth. Your provider will review your current condition to determine if a telehealth appointment is right for you.

Here is more information about telehealth visits at Southern Medical Group.
