I’ve taken verbal and telephone orders like everybody else here too. But when it comes to a prescription, if you can’t get the Doc to sign it….. make SURE you PRINT the doctor’s name, print your name, and then sign your name. If the Pharmacist takes issue, have them call and verify with the doctor. They take computer printed scripts with no signature…. so what’s the difference??? If it turns out that they have to have a signature, I’d definitely call the docs and let them know asap b/c you don’t want to have that come up at the last minute!
