My girlfriend is having this exact issue.We went to a walgreens in Altamonte Springs Florida, across from Florida Hospital Altamonte.
She has a spinal simulator for pain management, and it has broken, and is now malfunctioning and sending electrical shocks straight into her spinal cord. To have this implant put in it required drilling holes in her vertebre...this is NOT a small procedure. This of course is causing great amounts of pain. We went to the pharmacist with a prescription given by her doctor, and we have no problem waiting for it to be verified.
The Pharmacist we find out later blacklisted her, and now she cannot get ANY meds from Walgreens, even cold medications. So not only can she not get her pain meds, she cannot go to any Aalgreens for any medications whatsoever. We found this out when she went in and they treated her like she was some kind of crackhead criminal.
My girlfriend is a 25 year old blonde girl, who is clean cut, was wearing a Ralph Laurren shirt when we walked in, and carries a $300 Dooney and Bourke purse.
I drove up in my Audi. We are far from looking like meth heads, or pill poppers. We just want her to get her pain meds so she can stay out of the hospital, until she can have her surgery to fix her simulator.
She has been on pain meds for 9 years, and we brought all the documentation to prove this.The Pharmacist was a real a-hole for doing this to her.
This reviewer shared experience about poor customer service and wants this business to "we are contacting the local news channel who has been doing a recent story on walgreens and blacklisting customers with legit scripts. my girlfriend will now have to go to the hospital due to not having her pain meds" as the author lost $10000. VideoboyMatt is overall dissatisfied with Walgreens. The most disappointing about walgreens pharmacist at Walgreens was we have been blacklisted , but reviewer liked we have been blacklisted. Reviewer wants customer support to reach our to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.
