From being in a car accident pain and swelling in my right knee. I attended the Rothman Institute physician determined there was fluid on my knee. So he shared it need to be drained and injected hydrocortisone. I've heard stories about the long needles. I'm not a fan of needled but to stop the pain it was done. Three month later the pain and fluid return. I can tolerate pain so i didn't go back instantly. Finally decide to do it again this time there was more cc of fluid in my knee the circumference was larger. I allowed them to drain it again. Now in my mind Im not going to keep coming back every few months to get this done, it has to be a better way. I visited Myra's Vitamin herbal Center in July 2013 to discuss my knee. Share my previously issue. With Myra knowledge she recommended for we to try turmeric which is for anti-inflammatory , that worked. I was amazed. I attended a affair where I was in my feet for about 5-6 hours, after this affair I could barely walk my knee was swollen and throbbing pain. Visited the store explain my night Next she requested for me to take liquid form Turmeric cayenne pepper, and Alfalfa herbs and plus arthritis formula pill form every 2hrs half hour apart with the three liquid. Took the herbs as directed for about 3-4 days then return to share results she suggested to just take the liquid herb Turmeric, Cayenne pepper and Alfalfa Today I have not returned to Rothman my knee feels Great!!!! I only take as needed. I will share my story again and again.
Hands down best pharmacy in Philadelphia. Never waited more than 15 mins for prescriptions even when busy. Know all my kids names and will truly help you in any way possibel. My daughter was sick, hospitalized came home on a friday the prescriptions needed a prior auth(govt scam) to cover medicine. These kind people filled it for me and when the Auth got done which was 3 full days+weekend don't count so my sick child would of been without medicine right out the hospital for 5 days minimum. You think cvs or rite Aid would ever do anything remotely close to that? I'd drive hrs to give them my business if need be. I love going in there because it reminds me of how America use to be when i was younger, they even have an aisle of candies ranging from 5$ to 1.00 Just try them for a month or 2,i used to drive for hrs. To different main chain pharmacies who ever had anything in. These guys, 90% of the time have it or next day get it. Id give them 10 star's if i could. You won't be disappointed.
Andrea is the most caring kind hearted knowledgeable pharmacist I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.... This man continuously goes out of his way to make sure his patrons are 100% satisfied. He does everything for everyone because he loves his job.... He loves what he does... He loves to help people.... I will never ever go anywhere else ever.... This man is truly a diamond in the ruff... If anyone is looking for a pharmacist he's your man.... He has the most competitive prices around... He fights your medical insurance for you... Makes house calls... Delivers after hours.... Informs you thru text as soon as your medicine is ready for pick up... Again this man is the best I only wish the rest of Fishtown and surrounding neighborhoods knew of this pharmacy.... Thanks again Andrea for everything you do for me and the family... You are truly appreciated..
Andrea is the absolute BEST pharmacist out there. he cares so deeply about his customers and his number one goal is to have you leave 100% satisfied. on numerous occasions he has ordered-in items that he didn't already have in stock! (aquafor and oil of oregano). his shelves are stocked with amazing products and he's always eager to show you something new he got in that he thinks you'll enjoy. Andrea is a huge asset to the neighborhood... this is the kind of "when I was young..." type of customer service you parents/grandparents talk about. I'm sad to leave philly and not see Andrea's friendly face every morning when I pass Nova Star!
This is the best pharmacy I have ever gone to. The staff is exceptionally friendly, and the pharmacists and their technicians are knowledgeable, patient, and eager to help. It is evident that they appreciate our business, and they go out of their way to make your visit there a pleasant experience. Never again would I go elsewhere for any of my prescriptions other than Tang Pharmacy. David Blyweiss
Nova Star provides high quality, personal pharmacy service. I especially recommend Nova Star because it is a business that invests in local schools, especially Penn Treaty School. Nova Star actively supports the teachers (by donating to teacher appreciation breakfasts w/ prize drawing), the athletes (by donating to the sports teams), and Friends of Penn Treaty School (by participating in our annual flea market). Thank you, Nova Star Pharmacy!
I have been with Amigos Pharmacy since the opening. The service is excellent, the pharmacist is well informed and always eager to help with any questions or needs. Is good to find someone who is caring to the needs of their customers. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend anyone and everyone to Amigos Pharmacy.
When you get a prescription filled at this location count your pills our better yet ask for the original packaging to insure that you are getting all of the medication that you are paying for. I've been shorted twice but I have since learned that they make mistakes in counting your pills.
They fill my prescriptions and call when they are ready. They are mindful of med contraindications and call if the is a concern. They will also deliver if necessary. Most important they are always polite and they take the time to answer any questions or concerns I have.
Super friendly and knowledgeable staff who only took 5 minutes to fill a prescription on my first visit. There's no reason not to support a friendly local business over the chains especially when most of the chain pharmacies are so bad in Philly
