Florida Skin Center has developed a dispensary program to administer its most-used, provider-selected, topical compound and oral medications from Prescriber’s Choice and PD-Rx Pharmaceuticals. This will save the average patient (called guest) between 49% and 61%.
The dermatology practice’s Cape Coral office is a fully operational dispensary that can provide 32 different medications — including those from its on-site Acne Clinic — to guests immediately following their appointment or within three to seven business days via mail. These medications can also be sent to Florida Skin Center’s Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres and Punta Gorda locations for guests’ convenience.
All medications within the dispensary are produced using FDA-approved national drug code ingredients and custom prepared for each guest’s skin condition while accounting for allergens and irritants. They include psoriasis and rosacea creams; acne gels and moisturizing cream; Clindamycin and Doxycycline.
This antibiotic normally costs $415 and retails for as much as $748, but Florida Skin Center is selling it for $55.
The cost for this and other medications is generally less than a commercial insurance or Medicare copay. Guests can also submit these costs to their Health Savings or Flexible Spending accounts.
“Florida Skin Center’s dispensary is redefining the guest-doctor relationship. We’re eliminating trips to the pharmacy and wait times at mail-order facilities, as well as giving guests the opportunity to begin treatment immediately — all for an average $10 markup on wholesale costs and, most importantly, the creation of the highest level of satisfaction in the dermatology industry,” said Founder and Chief Medical Officer Anais Aurora Badia, M.D., D.O.
