When dealing with your health, you don’t want to make mistakes or take any chances. And when it comes to finding the right pharmacy, you want to be sure that you can trust it without question.
Some pharmacies offer more services than others and invest more time and energy into making sure that their customers are satisfied. In Victoria, there are many pharmacies to choose from, but we think that Quadra Village Pharmacy’s is a cut above the rest. But we want you to decide for yourselves.
There are many things that you should consider when choosing a pharmacy. You may not even realize that you are missing out on services that can be critical to your health. If you follow this checklist, you will find out whether your pharmacy is providing the best service for your needs.
Is your pharmacist easily available for consultation?
If you are on long term medication, you want to deal with a pharmacy and pharmacists that you can trust. And you will want them to be on hand if issues come up. Pharmacies should employ pharmacists who are trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient. Consider whether or not you are receiving the type of service you need.
How long do you have to wait for prescriptions?
Some pharmacies offer quicker service than others. Especially if you are an established customer, some pharmacies make it as easy as possible by offering free delivery. Perhaps you have mobility issues or other reasons that make it difficult for you to get to the pharmacy. Either way you are going to want a pharmacy that makes filling your prescriptions simple.
Is your pharmacy always able to fill your prescriptions?
If you are expecting medication, you want a reliable pharmacy that is well stocked and able to fill prescriptions on demand.
Does your pharmacy offer preventative care?
You might be familiar with seasonal flu shots that pharmacies offer, but most pharmacies offer an array of vaccinations. In addition, the pharmacists should be trained to carry out vaccinations. Ask your pharmacists what kind of preventative care you can receive. If you feel like they could offer more, perhaps it’s time to shop around.
Does your pharmacy go above and beyond to make you happy and healthy?
Some pharmacies treat their customers like, well, customers, while others treat the customers like family. A trustworthy and reliable pharmacy takes time to get to know their customers’ needs and will take extra steps to help care for their health.
