Convenient, quick, personable. Why go elsewhere?
Unfortunately, pharmacies like Long Point Pharmacy are the sole reason that local businesses are going under. I called in earlier today asking about the availability of a particular cough syrup; I was told that it was in stock and I would have NO PROBLEM getting it without a doctor's referral or prescription (legally, they do not need one, similar to pseudoephedrine). I left work early to drive across town to pick up the medicine. However, upon arrival, I was told by the older woman in charge that she would NOT sell me the cough syrup without a doctor's referral. She asked about my family doctor who I've not seen in over a year, which she deemed unacceptable. I left annoyed, but called back and politely explained that I see a psychiatrist on a regular basis and maybe he could call in, because they "are generally more versed and experienced with complicated prescriptions dosages" (as explained to me by my family doctor, who by the way, referred me to the psychiatrist because she did not feel comfortable enough adjusting dosages on medications herself). The pharmacist on the phone said that they couldn't take a doctor's note from him because he wasn't a family medicine doctor (I had seen him in the past several days and he knows my flu/cold situation well). Family medicine doctors have a residency of about 3 years after medical school practicing internal medicine, while psychiatrists have a residency of roughly 5 years; 3 of which are internal medicine, but they continue on for another 1-2 years of even more specialized training in their subsequent residency; which is the obvious reason that I was referred to a psychiatrist for prescription medicine exacting for my individual case. I asked the pharmacist very politely why I could not get a referral from him, as he is an MD just like my family medicine doctor. She responded saying "we do not take prescriptions from psychiatrists." I then again asked her why, as all practicing and licensed MD's are legally privileged to write prescriptions for drugs. And that was the moment she hung up the phone on me. Rude manager, uninformed staff, terrible customer service and unintelligent people (to put it nicely). I would not recommend this pharmacy, unless, of course, someone asked me where they could get wrong answers and where someone will hang up them on when asking very legitimate questions.
