The UHC Pharmacy is open for walk-in service for prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. We are also happy to bring your medications outside if you prefer; please park in the UHC parking lot, call 706-542-9979, and a pharmacy staff member will deliver your order to your car. To avoid delays, please order your refills prior to arrival.
The UHC Pharmacy also has many non-prescription items available for purchase!
