Walgreens in Los Angeles, California - Medication Refused to Disabill

After 16 years of doing business I was refused my medication. I had paper work from the doctor and from the loco hospital in the area. I was told that I have to change doctors or go to the city the prescription was written. I and my wife were talked to as we were druggie. Their main reason to refuse service was our doctor was not in the same city as Walgreen. Their commercial needs to be pulled off the air. False advertizement. They are not friendly not willing to pickup a phone to verify the prescription, from doctor. After 16 years of service with Walgreen I will never step in their store ever again. Being chronically ill is a painful burden being abused because you are legally and permanently disabled is and should be illegal.On a final note Walgreen's has a responsibility to their customers to be honest they should not be over riding doctors decisions they have no right or expertise DOB 6-2-1954

if you were trying to fill a pain med, then yes you need to go to the town that you got your pain med from. why are you getting scripts from one town and filling them in a different area. are there no pharmacies where the script is from.

This is a very accurate and useful complaint. i know this to be an example of how walgreens acts.

As far as the "advertisement" you are correct! Walgreens has run an advertisement campaign for years trying to sell the consumer on it being "easy" to get your medications from ANY location, while travelling, moving, or on business trips. They do NOT practice this at any location. I also have been told that I could only fill prescriptions from the branch in the same community as my doctor was in; NOT near my own home!

im sorry someone criticized your original complaint due to spelling or a typo. It was probably someone "training" or working for the company (Walgreens).

They are far worse than can be itemized here.

I also have filled Rx's and been given 1)the wrong medication 2)the wrong labelling and information pamphlet(Rx was for antibiotic to treat pneumonia/pamphlet was for "testosterone ointment") 3)violations of controlled substances act 4)wrong medicine when Rx stated "brand name do not substitute/ I was given generic.

they are getting away with these outragious violations only due to being one of the largest pharmacy corporations.

Why don't you go to a pharmacy in the town where your doctor is located? Pharmacy rules are getting tougher.

Furthermore, what good do you think paperwork from "loco" hospital do you?

"Loco" means crazy/demented. What exactly is an "advertizement?" Did you mean "advertisement?"

Walgreens - Recent T.V. Commerical shown on 24th of January

I every photo of the twins, the children were placed into equipment so they were confined to be in a semi-conscious state. They were in swings hanging from the ceiling etc. Relook at the footage. There was very little respect for the children. At the end of the ad it says that you want to insure healthy and safe places for children. Infact it seems you want to model children being confined and placed into equipment not able to move freely. Please remove and remake. All children have the right to move freely and do what they are capable to do when they are ready. Please check out rie.org and pikler.org as ways to respect young child and their natural gross motor and development..

Walgreens Christmas Gift Commercial

The commercial was describing the many different gifts a person can buy for the Holidays, towards the end of the commercial a little boy was at school giving gifts to his friends. He gave the little girl a spinning picture frame on a hook stand. After that he walked up to his teacher at the chalk board and handed her a bag of Lindor chocolate candies, his facial expressions mirrored a look that a man would've have given woman if they were physically attracted to her. I think this is extremely inappropriate for viewers, especially a children in this age bracket. What are you trying to insinuate in this scene? Kids need to be kids in school, crushes in a sexual implication on TV is not helping parents fight to keep their minds on age appropriate things. The gift to another class mate was more appropriate than the little boy starring at this older woman like he wanted to physically. Distasteful....

I didn't see this commercial but by the way it sounds the student was doing a bump and grind on desk while the teacher licked chocolate off the tips of his fingers. Was she wearing a mini-skirt with knee high boots?

Or buttless pants? People are crazy. Why do you all read so much in to this stuff. Why is your kid watching so much *&**ing tv to start with?

You gots a sex problem? To much?

To little?

really? you have to be kidding right?

It is your own sick perverted mind that is thinking a little boy looking at his teach is thinking he wants to get it in. He has a school boy crush, that means when he fantasizes about a girl/woman it's them fishing or catching frogs together. Don't you remember when you were young and innocent but had a crush on someone. You didn't want to actually *** with them?

or did you? sounds to me you are the one with the problem.

I am as big a prude you ever want to meet. I will not even go see a movie if I know they take the Lords name in vain.

Having said all this, I thought this commercial was adorable. Kids do get crushes on thier teachers.

The teacher handles the situation well, while the little boy thinks he really did well. I see nothing wrong with this, in fact, it made me smile!

If you thought this was "adorable" you really must be watching it with prude eyes. If you watch the commercial again, maybe you would see the sexual nature of it.

When the teacher with the tight skirt is standing at the board, the camera angle is down low, focusing in on the boy looking at her. Then his look after he gives her the gift is very suggestive.

Not that I would think it would be okay if it were a high school boy, but it would at least be more age-appropriate! I would not want my children to see that ad.

Walgreens spams cell phone of Alzheimers patient

Got a cell phone call from 402.220.1247. It was a 2 minute commercial for Take Care clinics. At the end it says press 1 to have any question answered. I pressed one, got put on hold for 2 more minutes, and then a recording comes on that states no one is available to answer my call, and it hangs up. I have never been to a take care clinic, and my only contact with Walgreens was to fill prescriptions. I called Take Care clinics to get my number removed from their call list, and was told They could not do that unless I gave them even more personal info. I argued that all they need is the phone number, but they insisted I provide my name and email address. I made up a name and hopefully that should suffice. When I asked to be reimbursed for the cell charges, they passed the buck and suggested I call Walgreens. This cell phone is used solely for communication for anyone who needs to contact me regarding the Alzheimers patient. Seems they don't care they are stealing money from someone who is disabled. Beware of Walgreens and Take Care Clinics.

Um, so why dont you just block the number these calls are coming from on your end so you wont receive any more? It's not rocket science!

Unless of course you enjoy the drama of arguing. (Who the phone belongs to is irrelevant and gains you no sympathy points.)

Are we talking about cheerios or Somnapure the other retalers are under less regulation so they probly dont list everything. And its not like they are making in stockroom, they are made by a legitamate company that has to pass FDA regulations un like some companies. You dont want buy from retailers dont, and move back to England.

I am very offended by one of your TV commercials. I have listed it below. It is the one where a pharmacist is running through the store and at one point, I don't know if it was flour or what, but the pharmacist is running from a large cloud of some kind of...
