Refills by the 21st

The Ommani Center will be  closed  for the holiday observance beginning  Friday, December 22 at noon through  Tuesday, December 26   (we are open on Wednesday, 12/27) and again on Monday, January 1st  (we're open on Tuesday, 01/02/18).  Don't wait, be sure to plan ahead and have your pharmacy send any prescriptions you may need filled during our holiday closing as early as possible. You don't want to be without your Rx during the holiday.

 This is the time of year when our electronic medical record system automatically sends all patients flu shot reminders. Many insurance companies are once again following suit.  Please know the doctors at The Ommani Center handle flu vaccines on an individual patient basis. We recommend you check with your doctor to learn whether the vaccine is a good choice for you.  We do offer the vaccine here, but should you receive the vaccine at another facility, please notify us so your medical records at Ommani accurate reflect your receipt of the inoculation.

The holiday season is once again fast approaching.  As you consider your holiday gifts, don't forget to check The Ommani Center's retail offerings. 

We have an assortment of aromatherapy candles, supplements, books, essential oils, bright light therapy/SAD lamps, local honey, and other healthy gifts.  

Gift certificates are also available for complementary care.  Visit our retail space and/or ask the front desk staff if you are seeking something you don't see.
