I've used Walgreens for years, and have
for a few years had a controlled substance prescription. Many times, I've been advised to call ahead, to be sure that they have it in stock. So, I called today, and was told that she didn't know. I'd been inquiring about the cash prices for a few prescriptions, and she told me that the others I was asking about were in stock, but this particular one she "didn't know". I decided not to press it, even though I felt that I was being blown off, because they usually have it. But, when I went there, lo and behold, they didn't.
I've had several not so good experiences at this store in the last couple of months, since moving here, and this was the proverbial straw. I'll be doing business elsewhere, from now, on. It's not often that I feel such a need to express my opinion publicly, like this, but her attitude really irked me, on top of everything else.
I went to their 24 hour pharmacy straight from the ER with my sick 4 year old (croup) and the pharmacist/pharmacy tech that was working was very rude. "I'll be there in a minute and it will be a minute" after he gets all my info he says "there are people in front of you come back at 12:50 (30 minutes) thank you bye and then left the window without me even responding." I didn't expect special treatment, but he knew he was filling for a sick child (who was in the car) and could have been at least a little nice!! I left and will be going back early this morning to pick up the rx before my child wakes up. I WILL NOT EVER HAVE MY RX's FILLED THERE AGAIN!!!
