I am overwhelmed with gratitude to a local pharmacy that came through for my family today. I have the unfortunate and chronically debilitating disorder of being bipolar. I have (as we all do) struggled to try deal with it every day of my life. At the end of November this year I lost my health insurance after turning 26 and had no idea what hell awaited me, as I have taken health care for granted nearly my entire life, and doing so always had the benefit of a RX saving program. This was the first time I had to fill my regular RX as a cash paying patient. I was shocked to find out a month supply would cost me $1439.00 at Walgreens (not a joke) and the prices hardly fluctuated after calling almost 10 pharmacies in the area. With obvious emotion in my voice I got into contact with a local Pharmacy that after hearing of my situation said he felt he could not ask more from me than $100.00 .. after we both cried for a few moments I realized our health care system is so screwed up .. and yet there is still some really kind hearted and compassionate people out there that will do whatever it takes to help others in need. This pharmacy deserves so much more than a Facebook post, but I felt I HAD to get the word out that they helped me and my family today in the most special of ways. Thank you Partell Specialty Pharmacy for allowing me to continue to try and lead a happy and productive life with my children by giving me a little break on something that I consider to be one of my very important lifelines.
I have patroned this pharmacy for quit some time. They are a wonderful pharmacy with a caring friendly knowledgeable staff. I to am in need of narcotic medication but also have many other conditions to which I need prescription medication for.I understand this policy as anyone who has the need for pain medications does. Why would they fill a new customers narcotic scripts and possibly not have enough medications for their customers who have been loyal and have other conditions? I'm sure they are aware of "pharmacy shoppers" I am not saying that you are but I am sure you are aware of the government's regulation on such medications. All pharmacies are limited on the amount of controlled meds they recieve. I believe they are taking care of their loyal customers and not "pharmacy shoppers" who make it difficult for patients truely in need of narcotic meds to get their medications.
I have had the misfortune of having to use quite a few pharmacies within the last 12 years. After going to many different stores I finally found THE BEST!! They give you the bedside manner that most Doctors don't even give anymore. Jessica is awesome, she does whatever it takes to make sure that you get your medicines (especially when it comes to fighting with insurance companies). I don't know about you, but when I feel like crap, the last thing that I want to do is to have to fight with my insurance company to get them to pay for my medicines. She has handled everything that I've thrown her way with grace and a beautiful smile!! You will have NO regrets going there for the first time or switching over all of your meds to this pharmacy. Take it from someone who has been going through this for a long time (at a young age) you can't find a better pharmacy in this town!
