Maybe: Whether a PRIME doctor prescribes medications depends on the doctor, the patient, and each individual situation. PRIME fees are the same, regardless of whether or not medication is prescribed, because the fees are for the consultations (not the meds). Also, you have posted this current question on HealthTap's free public information forum. Instead, try requesting a PRIME consultation. ...Read more

Can a doctor cancel a prescription he wrote for 6 refills?
