UNINVITED GUESTS

When patients try to walk behind the pharmacy counter to talk to us.

INAPPROPRIATE PRESCRIPTIONS

Physicians who try to prescribe an antibiotic for a viral infection.

ILLOGICAL IMPATIENCE

When patients threaten to drive across town to another pharmacy after we tell them it will take more than 15 minutes to fill a prescription.

HARDER THAN IT LOOKS

Patients who do not understand why we cannot just “slap a label on a bottle.”
