ripped me off

London, KY

#1 Aug 11, 2010
My doctor phones me in a prescription for lortab every 2 weeks, I,m prescribed 28 every 14 days, when i got home there was only 23. The prescription said I was supposed to get 28, it was on the bottle even. I phoned the pharmacy and they said when it leaves the store they can't help me. I have to go to work and do without because either someone in the pharmacy can't count or one of the employes ripped me off. I'm changing to knox professional right away. If you people get any meds. there, I suggest you count it in front of them.

If they were doing as they should have been the pills would have been counted twice. That being said, I don't think that you would be off count by five.

Maybe, just maybe... The two "counters" were in on it together. If, they were counted (as supposed to) like you stated. Ever thought of that genius?

If someone was going to lie about being shorted pills, I'm sure it was be more than five, LoL!

Not saying any names, but a guy that use to work for Ernie Coscia got fired for stealing pills out of people's bottles that he delivered! So, it's possible, just saying.... If you stole five pills from five different people or more, that would be a pretty good little ring going on there. A couple here and there adds up!!

What I hate is when your doctor FAXES your prescriptions into them, they sit on the fax machine for HOURS and they don't fill them until you either call them, or go to pick them up. I wish someone there would notice the fax machine and fill them in a timely manner!

Personally, I like Knox Professional Pharmacy. Nothing against Hinkle Pharmacy, but it's a big decision where to take any medication in this town when there is about 12 pharmacies in one little county. Like I said, nothing against Hinkle Hometown Pharmacy ~ let me be clear on that! I am all for any business in Knox County... The more businesses, the more jobs available.

One MAJOR WORD OF ADVISE if you do go to Professional... Keep all of your receipts! You will go in there this month and your prescription will cost $5, and next month it will be $25 for the same exact thing. Then, the next month it may be back to $5 or even $12. Very random. Whether you have insurance or a cash client!!!!!!!!!!

They sign the bottles so that they know who counted the medicine. And they count all control drugs twice.I'm sure your bottle is signed twice

Pharmacies get 600,000 calls a day saying they shorted someone on pills by people trying to get more to sell. That is why they have the policy of, once it leaves the store they can't do anything about it. I'm sorry, but we all know, the people in this area, with jobs or sucking SSI and welfare dry, are about 98% drug heads.

Wasn't there just a post about Easy and Jimmy???? How lame can this get?

Any pharmacy will tell you that when you take your meds out of the store, keep them for an hour, and then call and say you're short, your s h i t out of luck.

Oh wait, no one can make a mistake (unlikely they did)???? So, you think Knox is going to be perfect? Let me tell you, they've messed mine up more than once. In fact, I walked out one day with two bottles of the same medication (I got an extra 90 pills) and the guy had to run out and catch me pulling out of the parking lot.

So, get off your high horse and realize s h i t happens. Even if there was five missing, that's roughly 2 days. You can buy 4 pills off the street if you need them that bad. Odds are, if you've been taking them for a while, your tolerance is so high you probably eat 4 a day.

Just another d i c k head trying to stir up the s h i t. Go to angieslist.com and write your crap there.

You're not going to get ppl to leave that pharmacy because you're missing five lortab.

So, your name is "ripped me off"?? I highly doubt that they can do much with 5 lortab if they did miscount. The only person that got ripped was NO ONE.

The Same Thing Happen To Me At Calvin's...Except, It Was 30 Pills. I Had Been Shorted B4, Like 4or5. And They Said The Same Thing....If It Leaves The Store, They're Not Responsible. I Like Calvin And All, And Didnt Wanna Switch Drug Stores Because Of Tht. So I Started Countin Mine B4 I Left The Store. They Got So Use To It, Tht When They Brang My Medicine To The Counter. They Would Automatically Bring A Count Tray. I Left Town Fer About A Yr, And Came Back.And I Started Goin Back To The Doctor. So, I Let 'Em Off The Hook By Standin There Countin. I Figured They Knew Not To Try Me. It Wouldnt The Second Month I went Back In There. They Hit Me Fer 30 Pills. They Were Suboxone Too. And Anybody Tht Goes To Tht Clinic Knows U Hafta Have A Pill Count In Two Weeks....So When I Got To The Car, InStead Of Havin 87 Pills, I Had 57....Well When I went To Pill Count I was Suppose To Have 43 Pills...Not Only Did Them Wh***s cause Me To Have A Horrible Month. But They Screwed Me Around With The Clinic. And Almost Got Me Cut Off...Thank GOD, The Doctor Over There Had Done Had 4 reports Of Them Keepin Ppls Medication. He Didnt Replace My Medication Because He Couldnt. But They Let Me Slide Through Pill Count. But If U Go To Calvins. And The Preachers Wife And Tht Blonde Gets Ur Prescription. U Better Count It B4 U Leave. As a Matter Of Fact. If U Got A Narcotic Gettin Filled In There. It Dont Matter Who's Fillin It. U Better Check It. Cause Them Girls Are Rippin Ppl Off Hard. U Can Imagine Old Ppl Tht Dont Even Pay Attention...But I Did End Up Switchin Pharmacy's After Tht. I Couldnt Stand Another Lick Like Tht ...
