13/01/08 2 5 5 5 In 2 years of trying to find help, she was able to help me. Everyone on her staff were very helpful, except the employee who handles her 'prescription renewals'. My medication carrier, MEDCO, faxed a request to the person who handles Dr. Silverthorn's renewals and it was never sent back to MEDCO. I called 2 days later, after receiving notice from MEDCO of no receipt of renewal and called Dr. Silverthorn's office and this time spoke directly to the person who handles this, she said it was faxed that morning to MEDCO. Then I received a phone call from MEDCO saying my prescription was canceled due to no reply from doctors office. This area of Dr. Silverthorn's practice was the only area which I thought needed improvement. Thank goodness I called for a renewal while I still had 2 weeks of meds remaining. Otherwise, the staff have always been friendly and helpful and Dr. Silverthorn has always been helpful and knowledgable.
