I worked at Walgreens in Winona for almost 8 months. During that time there I have learned that Walgreens as a company has no standards for their Managers. I had a manager the first 2 months that was awesome. He was personable, kind, worked hard, everything I thought a...
Walgreens always filled my prescription for pain 5 days in advance. Then they asked me what was wrong with me that I needed pain medication! When I refused to tell them due to HIPPA laws, they would conveniently forget to fill my pain meds. I stopped going to...
The dr called the main pharmacist and got the pain medication approved. My husband was involved in two car accidents and required two surgeries. He had lower back surgery and was released since we had hospital equipment at home. The head pharmacist understood my...
Walgreens pharmacists try to practice medicine by reviewing medications, then pestering doctors, often asking for diagnoses and plans of care. They claim it is because of regulations. BUT the regs do not say that. How can a person with a partial degree in chemistry...
After not being able to develop some film rolls (because it was too expensive for me) I went back to my favorite Walgreen's in Sugar House, Salt Lake City, UT (because the workers there are very friendly!) only to find it now takes a week (in my case 2 weeks) because...
Walgreens double charging
I was double charged on 6/29/14 so this double charge *** is still going on at good old Walgreens. They lost me for good if they can't manage their business. Found same complaints from 10 months ago online on several sites...you would think a company this large could get it together. No way I will use my card there again or even enter the store. Prices are way too high anyway, just used it for location. yady yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada yada And why does this site require at least 100 words?
Walgreens - Review about Medication Prescription from Decatur, Alabama
Worst pharmacy I've ever encountered. Following spinal surgery my doctor prescribed pain medication, fairly low dose. I had never taken this kind of medicine, so I did not really understand how controlled this medicine was and that it was so abused. I tried to refill my existing prescription from my g.p. instead of my new prescription from my spine surgeon because it was Friday night and I had forgotten to call in my refill before the weekend. I had no intention of taking more than I was prescribed. Female pharmacist was accusatory, snide, rude and, at one point, actually rolled her eyes like a 16-year-old girl. She became so irrited, she sent an email to my doctor implying I was trying to obtain extra or excessive pain meds. I had never taken more than was prescribed and had actually tried to stay under the dose when possible. ( By the way, this pharmacist actually let my husband submit and pick up a prescription written for me but asked me for my I.D., which I really had no problem submitting, it just seems like if one professes to be concerned about control, then be consistent.) Another pharmacist at same location just doled out the pain med without even asking for an I.D. Anyway, the email to the surgeon caused him to cut me to so little medicine I could not control my pain for approximately six weeks until I could get into a pain clinic and find a better, hometown pharmacy where I am treated like a person who has a spine problem. Worst medical experience of my life, those six weeks. And to what end? The pain is still with me but Walgreen's is not. I wonder why people who do not really like helping people who are I'll or injured choose such a profession. Perhaps a laboratory setting would be more fitting.
Walgreens Prescription Refill
Slow Service Review
Not enough pharmacy help, and the one pharmacy tech they do have is slow and can not multi task. Definitely not the corner of happy and healthy!
Walgreens - Cashier Review
I'm sick going to Walgreen stores in Northern California- especially, MILLBRAE Walgreen where all of the worker are asian- philipinos and speaking that god awful language when they- Day store manager, supervisor, and cashier did know how to provide a store credit reversal of a transaction paid with a debit card. Anyway, I originally wanted a receipt for my purchase, but the cashier put the tape into machine backwards, and did not know how to reprint a receipt. This was of course true of store manager, and supervisor- all philipinos speaking that god awful language with little to no English! How is this possible? Change walgreens or lose a customer.
Walgreens in Birmingham, Alabama - Be Prepared to Overpay for Products if you refuse to apply for discount card
Out of principle, I do not give my information in order to obtain a discount card. Walgreens really wants my information because if I refuse to obtain one, the new prices are outrageous! I used to purchase Plus White there for under $10. Today, without a discount card, the price posted was $28+! I went to Walmart and bought the product for $5. This is now true with all products I used to buy at Walgreens...either I take their discount card or pay through the nose. I decided I would not be coming back. Incidentally, the store, located in Chelsea, AL is just about the friendliest store I have been in. Every employee is pleasant and helpful. I just don't appreciate being gouged.
