I wonder what every one in here thinks is the worse pharmacy in Beckley?

I think it's the Rite Aid on Johnstown Road. I dropped of my mothers prescription of at 6:00 in the evening only to be told that it would be ready in the morning at 10:00. I didn't make it back until 1:30 the next day and I was told it would be another hour until it would be ready. An hour later I come back and they couldn't find my moms medicence. They put with the other prescriptions but not in alphabetical order like it should have been. It took them nearly half an hour to find it.

With incompetance like that I can't trust the staff there!

I suggest you contact the West Virginia Board of Pharmacy and file a written complaint. Mr. Brown at CVS Harper Rd. makes them the absolute pharmacy. He thinks he is "god".

Crab Orchard Pharmacy is the best! You can't find a better pharmacist than Dick. All of the staff are so friendly.

CVS is notorious for buying the cheapest generics money can buy. I know a 30 day supply of generic bupropion costs $1.67 for 30 pills wholesale, but they charged by friend who was out of work, depressed with no insurance $65 for that prescription. That is what I call GREED. You want to know how CVS is building all the new buildings on every street in Beckley??? GREED. Stay away from them. And I already mentioned how Pharmacist Brown did me at CVS on Harper Rd. He wouldn't fill my prescription claiming it wasn't due, but in fact is was 3 days OVER DUE. He thinks he is GOD Almighty.

Crab Orchard Pharmacy and Beckley Pharmacy on Stanaford Rd are the 2 BEST in Beckley. I know Beckley Pharmacy also delivers.

Either can meet or beat CVS, Walgreen, Walmart, or Sams any day of the week.

I was without insurance a few years ago and had a perscription Rite-aid told me the per. was $250 I did not get it filled. When I complained to the dr. my next visit about the cost he told me to take it to wal-mart. The next day I took it to wal-mart when I asked the price before it was filled. And to my surprise the cost was $17.98. When I had insurance back then I never asked the price. Now I have great insurance and always ask the price. Wal-mart is the cheapest by far. I hate to go in wal-mart, always crowded and 1 lane open but I have the dr. to call it in and allow a couple hours, it is ready when I go pick it up.

I love going to Beaver CVS, they are friendly and answer my questions. When I have been out of state or in another area of WV and needed something refilled. I told them I was a regular customer of Beaver CVS. They found my records and filled what I needed or found my file for all my insurance information for another type of refill.

Yes CVS is building everywhere. They are trying to compete with Wal-Greens & Rite Aid. If you notice a Wal-Greens on one block look around and you will find a CVS or RIte Aid or both. It is pure competition.

And WHO do you think pays for this competition? The WV Board of Pharmacy is a do-less political board that needs a check up from the neck up for permitting such idiocrasy.

I've always had good luck with Rite Aid on Harper Road. Always helpful to me and I've never had to wait very long. It must be different folks and different times.

WalMart in Beckley I had two meds that were wrote out as 90 day supply 2 times a day for 90 days (360 pills) for each. when i had them refilled they refilled as 320 pills on one and the other was 180. was in a hurry did not pay that much attention to it till 1 med ran out before the other, when i refilled it again i asked them why i did not get the quantity that i should got. they said that is how the doctor wrote it. i told them that was not true and the original refill was correct and they could even check their documents that they are required to keep on file from the doctor, their reply was we don't have them. the next time they do that to me, I'm going to advise them they need a lawyer for not keeping those records.

Your math isn't right. 2 times a day for 90 days = 180. NOT 360

We get everything at Sams in Beckley. NEVER a problem and friendly service.

Used to go to the Rite Aides. They suck. Half the time you'd go in the pharmacy was closed so I quit them.

opps, 2 pills 2 times a day is 4 pills a day. 7*90=360. I have 2 different meds that were wrote that way.

CVS Beaver is the best. Those girls there really know what they are doing. They are nice, friendly and so helpful. Every pharmacy customer experiences problems from time to time but CVS Beaver always puts the customer first. They strive for customer satisfaction.

I agree Wal-Mart pharmacy is by far the worst,we dropped a script off and they said it would take 30 mins. so 45 mins. later went back and they said its not done give us 10 more mins. went back still not done said give them 15 more mins. went back and still not done this went on for 2 hours and the sad thing is someone who dropped their meds. off after us whom had more that were filled got theirs before us and we were waiting on the benches in front of the pharmacy so it wasn't like we left or anything.
I think they done it on purpose and thats when the big snow was hitting so I was kinda in a hurry and the employee's are RUDE.
