Physician Dispensing

With traditional “pharmacy dispensing,” a doctor writes a prescription for a patient, and the patient takes it to a pharmacy to have the prescription fulfilled. With “point-of-care dispensing” AKA “physician dispensing” AKA “in-office dispensing” doctors, medical practitioners, or physicians supply prescription medication directly to their patients at the time of care.
