Hearing the policy straight from the Walgreens pharmacist that it’s all about whatever is cheapest causes me to distrust their over-the-counter Walgreens brands also, so I have completely stopped buying anything at their stores for me and my family and am spreading the word at work and throughout the healthcare system I work for to hopefully save others from getting sick from their generics. Walgreens is completely unethical and should you decide to shop at this place know that you are not dealing with the best. Walgreen store locations nation wide are below average. Since I have been there that place changed management after management and Pharmacy Staff and Manager Pharmacy. Don’t they forget we are the reasons that Walgreens are in business? .my husband had to make a 2nd trip after a long day of work. They have to be more tentative, caring, listen to the customers. After getting my meds, I pull into a stall to call and talk to the store manager to get the gentlemans first name and the phone numner to the corporate office.
It’s a sad day when your pharmacy we entrust our very health with and count on to help make us well and prevent illness are so callous and uncaring as to risk our health for the almighty dollar. Walgreens store in particular located in Long Island City -3355 Crescent St #67, Long Island City, NY- is among the worst! The last staffs was wonderful and very friendly towards customers! I spoke to the technician in person what medications I needed; 1 was ready but the 2 wasn’t when he told me that 3 of them will be. I spoke to an assistant manager named Brittany, who did nothing but talk over me and make excuses for the gentlemans behavior and refuse to give me just his first name.
The pharmacist tell me I pronounce the medication wrong in a rude attitude and laugh. Thank you Reply I am a well known customer of Walgreens at 87th and cicero but, I have only one complaint with an employee named Jasmine.
This is not the first time I had problems with this employee but, I thought I would give her another chance.
The management only pays attention to what they want. How they are running things down here are completely wrong. Reply I find it unconscionable that Walgreens purchases generic prescription meds from Indian manufacturers they know make many people very sick and/or don’t work.
What they fired me for, they amazingly didn’t hear anything the patient said except I want to talk to a supervisor. Their generic Nexium makes me violently ill with extreme vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea which I verified by trying it a second time a couple weeks after the first time with the same exact symptoms while I was totally healthy otherwise and feeling fine until taking it. Reply By far the worst grocery place ive ever been to. He gave me the total of my prescriptions and when I told him that 1 of the prices was wrong and should have a discount applied, he immediately got an attitude.
I’ve seen customers treated poorly at this store location. I am BEYOND furious, but most of all my feelings are very hurt.
Both CVS and Rite Aid are million times better than Walgreens. I spend TONS of money at this particular Walgreens yet, they continue to treat me this way!
They should at least have other US made generics to choose if you have reactions even if a bit higher cost but they do not which caused me to move my prescriptions to CVS. (Thinking to myself how this makes no sense) So I then say to him, “I just need to get my medicine, what do I need to do”?
I found out at the healthcare system I work for its pharmacy of choice they partner with is CVS obviously due to this type of attitude that Walgreens has and their lack of regard for their customers’ health and safety. TRAIN YOUR MANAGEMENT AND PHARMACY STAFF TO BE MORE CARING AND RESPECTFUL. He told me to either come in or drive around and get back in line, so I do.
I later learned my own niece also became violently ill with extreme vomiting, diarrhea etc after taking Teva generic for her thyroid meds. AND WHEN SHE SAID I CAN USE A MANUFACTURER TRANSACTION THEN LATER ON ANOTHER LADY SAID OH SO YOU WONT BE PAYING ANYTHING.. the ad sais 1.99 after the coupon and she didnt grant it, she still put 3.99 which its not supposed to be it! THERE WAS ALREADY A LONG LINE AND SHE JUST DOESNT EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO. I JUST DIDNT HAVE A CHOICE BECAUSE YOURE CLOSER AND I THOUGHT YOUR SALE ON ADS IS LEGIT! Reply Today for time number TWO, I was treated like s**t by pharmacy staff @ store 4240 located at 3710 E. So, I say to him, “Is there a reason that you are being so nasty to me”?
It is hard to believe that Walgreens continues to buy these sub-par and many times dangerous Indian drugs knowing they either don’t work or cause severe reactions to their customers just because they are cheaper. i am frustrated as hell and because the manager already said put it up as the same price… His reply was “Because Im trying to help you.” So I say to him, “So you need to be nasty to me because you’re trying to help me”?
It was in our local newspaper where she was arrested and indicted. We are told from training that we can’t have our cell phones on the floor because it is a HIPAA violation.
