They are like Wal Mart and everywhere else.. they cut back on workers to save money. It's not their fault there's not enough of them to wait on your impatient self.
Call and ask

I suppose the only one who can answer that question is the manager of Walgreens. Why don't you call him and ask?

An employee at Walgreens was SUPER rude to me the last time I was in there. I'm not going to call and complain, I just won't be back.

So if you're not going to complain to the one who can do something about it, why gripe on Topix to people who can't do anything about it? That makes no sense.

Its the insurance companies that slow all pharmacys down. Also, customers refill then get mad because their insurance card is out of date. If it wasnt for all the insurance issues all pharmacys would operate faster.

But I don't know that.

I'd it weren't for all the insurance companies people would have to pay full price for their own prescriptions. May not be a problem for a dumb ass lowlife who takes advantage of every social service available, but for someone like me , who has to pay for insurance, I appreciate it when a drug is supposed to cost $400, and I pay $50. Your opinion is spoken like one who gets all of their prescriptions for free because taxpayers pay for your freeloading a**.

I draw Social Security in my retirement and have Medicare D. I worked for 40+ years. I have no problems with Wall Green's at all. I did have a problem with one Jamacian woman working there. The doctor made a mistake and gave me Hydrocodone 5/ Tynol 500. My liver specialist does not want me taking Tynol because it has to turn into poison before working. She was angry having to call the doctor back and finally I had to transfer it across the street to CVS which took the entire afternoon. Vicoprofen is 68.00 while Hydrocodone/Tynol is only 12.00 dollars, and a week later while in Wall Greens I asked why the charge was still on my Humania web site, and they said it would be cleared in a few weeks. This was in June and it is still there. I know it isn't much money, but it is still Medicare/Medicade Fraud not to remove charges. I guess they don't know how. I called Wall Green complant number and they recorded the names of the woman and her assistant who had a barb wire necklace around her neck which looked nice on her.
I have a friend who went to pharmasutical Aid school at PJC with 10 other people this summer and non of them could get a job after spending over 1,000 dollars and having to pass state test. I have noticed that very few of the employees behind the counter have past this test but say they are going to in the future. One door greeter works at Wall Mart in the pharmacy and does a great job in both places. I'm sorry you have to pay for your medication but mine cost the government 149,000.00 last year, and I seriously doubt that even you could pay pharmacy bills that high. So far this year it's only 49k since January. I will say nothing else about the fraud because I know the goverment pays over 40 billion a year in medical fraud. I have told them with a witness with me so it is now in their hands. I have seen people buying the left overs out of the deli at a certain grocery store with food stamps also which is illegal. It seems there just are not enough people to watch the kettle boil, and people are simple doing as they please. Also people can not help the high price of medications. Many go to Canada, Mexico or even Europe to get the same drugs for a fraction of the cost. We have to pay for the research. I took a drug called telepivir that was 45,000 a month for 4 months for Hep C. Google the price if you find that hard to believe.

first of all.....it's humana, not humania, second of all, the pharmacist you are referring to is from africa not jamaica, and third of all, if the doctor made a mistake and wrote you a prescription for lortab when you're supposed to be taking vicoprophen, that's the doctor's fault, not the pharmacist's. seeing how you have your business out here online about having hepatitis, and being on medicare, and all that, i'm assuming you probably threw a baby fit while in the store because you got the wrong drug to get high on (again, the doctor's fault for prescribing the wrong thing) the pharmacy staff there is always busy, and doesn't have time to put up with wine bags like you who think they are the only people in the world that have problems.... maybe you should have took your incorrect prescription back to your doctor instead of having someone else do the work for you. quit whining, take care of your hep c, and keep living off the government.

If it wasn't for insurance, the prices of prescriptions would have never gotten that high. Doctor visits would be cheaper too.

The individuals above have no idea how many controlled substances are resold here in Paris. Yes do away with all medication period and let doctors use herbs. The post was about an over charge to Medicare that should have been removed. It's called stealing. You know you do it on your tax's. And Hep C is the number one killer of baby boomers other than cancer. So what is spreading it around.

First from another post the tatoe of barb wire was very goth but it's the style now and doesn't mean you have been to prison. You should get one. Second everyone who take pain medication is not taking it to get high. And third this was all handled by cell phone to the people who pay those hard working people at all drug stores. You inadvertently left out the part about the store not removing the charge to the government and displaced it with a spelling error, and a racial origin error while projected someone (probably) had a baby fit who you assumed had a drug issue. I enjoyed your answer even though I have change my name each time I post. You have told me what you fear the most. Trying to intellectualize what I wrote is futile to you. We need very strong ears to hear ourselves, and that includes me and you and everyone. Have a great day and pass it on.
