What's bothering you in the pharmacy?

Jagged Little Pill Bottles

Urgent Expectation

A patient comes in just after visiting an urgent care, expecting the prescription to be ready.

Missed Opportunity

It drives me crazy when a patient comes in to pick up a prescription for a chronic renewed opioid, and they are asked to sign a pad to document "I decline counseling."

Buyer Beware

There is very little regulation regarding the preparation or standardization of herbal remedies, as they are considered dietary supplements.
