Ginette Renewal
Hi there,

My pharmasist informed me the other day that I need to renew my script for Ginette.

I would just like to know if I actually have to make an appointment with the doctor to get a new script, or if I should be able to just give him a cal to get a renewall. Also, will I be able to go to my regular doctor if this is the case, or will I have to go to the dermatologist again (she's quite unfriendly and I'd like to avoid her).

Thanks alot.

Any doctor would be able to give you script for Ginette, but if you claim from your medical aid some medical aids will only pay (if at all) if you have a script from a dermatologist. If it is only the sript that you need you can phone the doc's office and ask for a new repeat script - You should then be able to pick it up from their reception without having to see the doc - However they will still charge you for it.
