Their pharmacy can’t be consistent in no using the child proof caps that only kids can open.
Today, when I picked up my order I said – those are the wrong colour.
The guy clerk, he said it was his first day.
I said “Are those the generic or the brand name.”
he went to the computer, and came back and said it was the brand.
“so you are telling me I got generic before?”
he stood there staring at me and repeated his first day
when I got home, I noticed they failed to put the warning label about dairy and multivitams and iron on the bottle.
then, I saw it was the wrong dose.
so I called and had to wait to get a manager of pharmacy on the phone.
when I got her, I told her it was the wrong dose and she put me on hold
while on hold to bad muzak, three different people picked up the line
no you can’t I am waiting for the pharmacy manager
when she came back to the phone, she was in full cold boss voice
and said it was not their error the doctor changed it
and them blamed me for not knowing that
I said the doctor didn’t have the lab work to change the med
and in any case, I had made an issue of the wrong pill
and it’s not on the customer but the clerk to resolve these issues
I was not using a pleasant tone and I lost it when the manager made it about
they followed proceedure
I told her not to go there and soon it was out of control
I ended the call with a loud “not ever shopping at your store, you are fucking rude.”
London Drugs sucks worse
the Save ons is a fucking joke
Pharmacists are not doctors, they are a drug store run out of a general crap store
they do not provide a clinical environment
but harsh glaring lights and tile on concrete floors
overwhelming cosmetics and perfumes
clashing colours and advertising everywhere
selling actual medicines alongside woo complimentary that is the alternatives to medicine
now Shoppers wants to add marijuna and they really have no idea how to deal with medical treatments
Interestingly, pharmacies also gave rise to truth in advertising laws. the product must do what it says it can do.
patients are not customers
and while marijuna is good for mood disorders such as depression and anxiety
it’s main benefit is that it reduces the side effects of pharmaceuticals;
but it does have pain efficacy that is physical and not limited to mental
cannabis has been medicine to many human cultures
but it is not cure all, end all or be all, nothing is
The Industrial Revolution was not just in factories, but in chemistry
early medicines were distillations and concentrations of plants and fungus
purified into their chemical components, with most of the material shifted out
the age of addiction began when human made alcohol and then improved on the drugs in nature.
Why care about the investors? Why not care about the millions of Canadians who are no longer criminals for using pot and the millions who now have much wider access to the medical benefits. People before profit G&M.time for business to care about 1. workers and 2. customersbecause investors are problem about why pay is low and costs are high.pun intended.
