Prescriptions in Jacksonville, Florida


As part of your wellness and/or treatment plan, River City OBGYN may recommend prescription medications. We will discuss all prescriptions with you, including both intended outcomes and potential side effects. Medications we commonly prescribe are:


  • Birth control
  • Hormone therapy and/or replacement
  • Pain management
  • Antibiotics and/or anti-fungals
  • High-blood pressure
  • High-cholesterol

In most cases, our providers will e-scribe your prescriptions while you are here for your appointments so that your prescriptions will be ready by the time you arrive at the pharmacist, however controlled prescriptions still require a hand-written prescription. It is our policy to approve generic RXs when available to keep prescriptions cost down for you and your insurance company. Please let your provider know if you utilize a mail-order company, as we can also escribe mail orders. Established patients may request prescription refills through their pharmacy or by calling our office. Patients must be up-to-date on their regular wellness exams and should be able to provide pharmacy information at the time of request. We will fulfill qualified requests, typically within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. Certain prescriptions may require authorization from your physician, which may prompt a follow-up phone call or office visit.

In addition, at the time of your office visit, we may be able to dispense prescriptions intended for certain treatments (such as oral contraceptives, blood medications, and some maintenance medication as those listed above, which often require refills). Our practice can also dispense prescriptions at the time of your office visit for the treatment of certain acute ailments such as urinary tract infections and vaginitis.

I have been with Dr. Garcia and this office for over 34 years and I love this office and the staff, everyone is so kind. Jan Ely is awesome and is always concerned about how I have been doing and she remembers my issues from last time. Dr. Wells is really nice too. Love this office man, not going anywhere.

  I love the staff of river city. My whole pregnancy went smoothly with these great people. Kendra Gillespie is a gem of a person, she treated me so well with all the complications I had. The sonography lady gave a detailed explanation of the baby parts. I loved both of them…On delivery day Gillespie took utmost care of me even when it’s 10:30 pm in the night and nurses in Baptist helped me for safe delivery. I would recommend this place for people who are expecting babies❤️
My sincere thanks to doctor Gillespie.

  I took my elderly neighbor to this office, they were all kind to her and treated her kindly. They were amazing and work with you to make sure your appointment time works for you a well as them and they don’t leave you sitting there like many doctors office’s do. I will definitely recommend them during these unsettling times.
