Patients 18 and older can sign up for this service by completing the consent form available at the pharmacy or online at Customers must notify the pharmacy in writing if you ever wish to cancel your subscription to this service.

Pagers are available to customers waiting to pick up their prescription. These small hand-held devices, similar to pagers used in restaurants, vibrate and flash when prescriptions are ready. The pagers work throughout the medical center allowing people the comfort of spending their short wait time at the Mayo Clinic store, gift shop, coffee shop, cafeteria, or clinic and hospital floors.
