FRIGID WORKING CONDITIONS
When able-bodied patients use the drive-thru during winter weather, forcing freezing cold air into the pharmacy.
NO SPARE CHANGE
Copays of lowball amounts like $0.37, which patients then want to put on their credit cards even when they have cash.
When pharmacy benefit managers require the use of a specialty pharmacy for medications that we’ve dispensed to patients for years.
PATIENTS WITH NO NAME
New patients who drop off a prescription without giving us any of their personal or contact information, especially when their names are illegible.
