Prescription transfers to retail pharmacies from Kaehler Memorial Clinic can only be performed when the Pharmacist is on premises and it can only be performed once. This means that if a prescription is transferred out, it cannot be transferred to another pharmacy which may mean a new prescription will be required from your physician. Kaehler Memorial Clinic will not transfer prescriptions in from another pharmacy.
Refills must be called into our refill line at (508) 968-6571. Your refill will be available after 1300 the following business day. Refill pickup is also available on Friday mornings.
