The Eisner Pediatric & Family Medical Center provides an in-house pharmacy for our patients. The pharmacy fills prescriptions for our patients who lack private insurance. The pharmacists also work actively with patients to help them manage chronic diseases such as diabetes.

Prescriptions for EPFMC Patients

Most of our patients qualify for one of several programs that cover prescription costs:

  • HWLA (Healthy Way LA)
  • Family PACT (Family Planning, Access, Care and Treatment); you will need your Family PACT card (green medical access card) to participate

We do not dispense medications for our pregnant patients. Please speak to your doctor about how to get your prescriptions, which are covered by Medi-Cal.

If you need help finding out what you qualify for or enrolling in a program, call Managed Care at (213) 747-5542, ext. 3202.The pharmacy is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 9 A.M. – 7:00 P.M. Tuesdays and Fridays, we’re open 9 A.M. – 5:30 P.M. Saturday hours are 9 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. We close 1–1:30 P.M. for lunch. Call us at (213) 747-5542, ext. 3522.

Diabetes Education and Management

We offer special training to aid patients with out-of-control diabetes to manage their disease. We also teach management of high and low blood sugar levels. The pharmacist will work with you individually until your diabetes is under control.

We’ll teach you diabetes basics, such as how to:

  • Use the meter to measure your blood sugar levels
  • Mix your medications properly
  • Inject your insulin
  • Dispose of the needles properly

You can participate in weekly group programs or individually by appointment (Mondays or Thursdays). This program is only for EPFMC patients, and you must be referred by your doctor.

Learn more about our Clinical Pharmacy Program in EPFMC’s Spring 2011 newsletter, Caring for LA.

We want to partner with you in your commitment to getting and staying healthy. You can find tips for managing diabetes and other information on living a healthy life in our Wellness Tips.
