Meds-Check Consultation

Scheduled throughout the year, a comprehensive interview takes place between a Cornerstone Pharmacist and the patient in question. A thorough review of the patient’s prescription and non-prescription medications occurs, which in turn brings greater understanding and stability to the individual undergoing treatment.

The patient learns how to fulfill the medication therapy prescribed by all healthcare providers involved. Aiding the individual’s perspective encourages a healthier lifestyle as their diet and exercise regimen can greatly reinforce the benefits of the medication being administered. We take great pride in effectively communicating to all of our patients what they are taking, how best to take it and reassuring them that should they have any questions to never hesitate in asking them.

Blood Pressure Check 

It cannot be exaggerated on how important it is for Cornerstone Professionals to frequently check the blood pressure of patients as anything outside the optimum range can lead to severe consequences at a quickened pace. Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, can lead to heart disease and stroke, among other deadly ailments.

The patient’s history of blood pressure values during their time spent with Cornerstone Pharmacy will be recorded within the database as well as being available in print form when requested. Informed decisions by the healthcare providers involved will be made in line with these values as well as the patient’s current (and even past) medication therapy. The patient’s outlook, diet and exercise regimen should be optimized when supplemented with regular blood pressure checks.
