Came close to midnight on a Friday in late Aug,2011 and the place was crazy busy. Was visiting Seattle to catch an Alaska cruise, with family and had some last moment medication questions as well as get meds we forgot to get from our Walgreens in NY.
Pharmacist was by himself (said he was new there) and even as busy as it was took the time and patience to answer all the questions we had and suggested over the counter meds to help.
Considering all the cases from the Hospital ( just behind the pharmacy) - fractures , screaming kids throwing up and and the druggies trying to fill right after midnight (yes, druggies!!! not caring about all the genuine emergency cases waiting) , thought Walgreens is doing a good job although they can definitely do with more help!!!
Looking the the reviews , thought they are rather unfair,......... and time of 30 minutes is a short time at any pharmacy in NY City at night and if they do not fill for ADD/narcotics after midnight , it is a good thing as they have their hands full with real people with real problems.
