Better than Bayshore pharmacy by far!!! Go here instead. They actually care about you and not just your money

From Business: Apothicare is a family owned and operated Hometown Pharmacy that is FAR more than your typical CVS/Walgreens/Publix. For starters, the owners/operators are husban…
Only went there because I needed a COMPOUNDED PRESCRIPTION...1st pharmacy that could NOT read a script..said they'd call doc & call me back.. I had to call twice the next day.. THEY NEVER CALLED ME BACK...24 hours later said OK, ready next day (2nd) around noon.. got there after 2PM and still had to wait almost 45 minutes...Demanded DL (I have NEVER had to produce that for an RX), then attempted to charge me double of what I was quoted.. In addition, RX called for 2 2oz containers with droppers... This COMPOUNDING RX said they did NOT have such a thing, so I had to go to yet another pharmacy and pay additional costs for the containers with droppers...One star only because they DID give me at quoted cost.. after I challenged them on it. And they were a lot cheaper than Sarasota. With that said, I WILL NEVER GO BACK THERE AGAIN....WAL MART & PUBLIX RX TREATED ME BETTER THAN THIS...There is another compounding pharmacy by Blake and another in Sarasota...The Sarasota one is VERY expensive and didn't accept any insurance...
This pharmacy used to be good, but so many times I have been there they have been very rude and messed up my prescription. They even told me I do not have insurance, when I do and have been using it at CVS! Do not trust all the fake reviews on here! They make their friends and other people they know review.
Price gouging is rampant with this company. My fathers prescriptions cost approx $45/ month at Winn Dixie Pharmacy, at Vanguard it is $150+. Total ripoff. They should all be arrested.
I don't know about the billing. What I do know about is the people. This company kept my father employed until he was 84 years old. It is a kindness that does not exist in corporate America. Most companies start shoving people out the door in their 50s. I realize your billing issues may be a mess, but the people at Vanguard are some of the finest people I have ever known in my life. and I have to defend them That whole staff was so compassionate and human. So I just want to defend them. They gave my dad purpose and that kept him alive.
My having repeated frustration with a chain store pharmacy, brought me to this neighborhood pharmacy. There is such a difference in the attitude of the people in a store like this one, not driven by quotas, but by making customers smile, and going out of their way to insure your satisfaction. Helpful direction regarding best pricing, generics, etc. ....and the pharmacist is cute!!!!!
Been a patient for years. They have always gone above and beyond to take care off me. The staff is fast and knowledgeable. I won't go anywhere else!!!!!
Seems as though every bill we get is wrong. Trying to make contact with this outfit is next to impossible. Never can make contact with billing.
A big Ripoff. Constantly sending over inflated bill and then they are rude as heck on the phone. Father has limited income and they expect me to send them every single dime to pay for overpriced drugs. Don't listen to patient or patients family wishes. Avoid at all cost!!!
I have been using Bayshore Pharmacy for about 4 years now! since I do not drive, they deliver my medication to me, which is a great convenience!!
