Well-stocked? Yes. Friendly employees? Sure.Nevertheless, there are a few things one can count on consistently at this place that make one's visit a bit of an ordeal. 1. I doubt I have ever approached the entrance without being accosted by an (allegedly) homeless person all but blocking the doorway.They have inexplicably, but perhaps understandably, adopted a drug store as their favorite hangout. Be ye not deceived: there is a fairly large Board and Care doors nearby on Western, so these folks get 3 meals a day and a little "personal spending" dough. That's not what their after; it's more likely beer change they are wringing your guilt for. Some of them should join SAG, such are their skills. Do notice a liquor store sits prominently across the street, so there's the real attraction. 2. Lines at the register.The cashiers are friendly folk with more patience than Job apparently, for it never fails: someone ALWAYS haggles over a coupon, or disputes a price, or must return something as though this habitually gives their life Meaning. Meanwhile, those in line wait... and wait.Take a book... perhaps "War and Peace" would do. 3. Prices of certain items have risen precipitously in but a few years. Does one really wish to spend 9 dollars on laundry detergent?! Even their own brand, once a good deal, has gone way up. Vitamins? Forget it. You could buy an I-Pod instead, just eat more veggies.Nevertheless, the store does try, and they consistently play rather groovy music to shop by. One can whisk about the place singing along to the 5th Dimension or Bee Gees while buying floss. P.S. Apply for the "Wellness Card" if you plan to become a regular. Happy Shopping.

The pharmacy staff is excellent and speedy, hence the 5 stars for expertise and service. The issue is the location: this CVS is on the ground floor of an apartment building catering to students, right across the street from the USC campus. The CVS is the closest place to buy food and, alas, alcohol to campus. The nearest grocery store is about a 1/2 mile + away. This means the store is always packed full of students and the shelves are frequently messy/disorganized. Furthermore, the parking for the building is awful. There is only one entrance and one exit for the garage - for both tenants and customers - so sometimes there can be a giant line to exit the garage. Doesn't help that the parking ticket machine frequently breaks too. While the parking situation and the mobs of clientele aren't CVS's fault, they make this particular location less pleasant to visit.
Introduced to this pharmacy waaaay back when it was 'Mom's' Pharmacy (good then, great now...). When I moved to East L.A. I wanted to use their services again. Before I did I had a dire need to fill several prescriptions from an Emergency Dept visit. I tried the local close typical (Walgreens/etc) and their co-pays/costs were exhorbitant... additionally, it was the end of the month, $$ were tight and so I went to this pharmacy hoping they'd recall my business and bill me. Not only did they do that...their prices were very reasonable and allowed me to bill my ins and then pay my share 'when I could in the next couple of months.' This was the difference between me obtaining my much needed meds and continuing to suffer for more weeks. wOw! I'm a fan.
I have told my friends my family and the local clinic about this place. The store is clean the staff is very nice and knowledgeable. They make you feel like family so your not afraid to open up and ask questions,they deliver your prescriptions to your door for free and it always done with a smile. I transferred all my prescriptions from Walmart to them and I have been worry free since. I'll stay with a neighborhood pharmacy where they no my name as opposed to a Giant Mega Store who gives me attitude a long waiting time and over charge me, no matter how much you think you're saving.
Without Bob's pharmacy, I probably would not be alive. When all insurances were sending me from one place to another and charging me hundreds of dollars, and all the suffering I endured, I found home and health at Bob's Pharmacy. Brenda is a loving and understanding woman. Sandy, ALbert, and Laura, thank you for looking out for me! You're patience will always be appreciated. Bob. Thank you for giving me my life. I would not waste my time going elsewhere. Calling 800-800-DRUG is as easy as it gets!
I have always found United Pharmacy to be outstanding in customer service. If I ever encounter problems regarding my prescriptions, I can count on the pharmacist (Fred) to contact the insurance company right away. He always makes the extra effort to ensure that his customers receive their presciptions without hassel and on time. I have not received the warm, friendly, efficient service at the large pharmacies. It is always a pleasure to return to United Pharmacy for my refills.
MAIL ORDER pharmacy. They deliver in the Los Angeles area FOR FREE and they ship next day or second day FREE OF CHARGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The staff is so friendly. They actually answer their phones.... no phone prompting... and I was able to fax my prescription and get it in my mail box the next day.....! These people have been around for over 20 years. They are wonderful to work with and they do guarantee the LOWEST PRICES! So, it's totally worth it! LOVE this pharmacy!!!!!!
Bobs pharmacy has always been prompt, professional and friendly. In the past my health had suffered greatly from missed doses due to poor service from the big chain pharmacies not delivering my meds on time. It takes a load off my mind to know my meds are now ready without excuses when needed. I wouldnt be doing so well health wise without Bobs and my great doctor. I cant even begain to tell you how much I appreciate Bob's and the staff there.
I shop here all the time. They have great sales and tons of wonderful things in there store. The pharmacy is great. If you are a new customer to the pharmacy they will give you $ 25 dollars for each prescription that you transfer to there pharmacy. Thats like getting free money to shop in there store. That great!!!! Give them a try for all of your needs today.
I take some hard-to-get medication and these people have it. Service is excellent; if they say "It'll be ready in ten minutes," that's when it's ready. They carry a good supply of branded Homeopathic goods and a large selection of quality vitamins. They carry braces and supports for those of us who need them. All in all, this is a great general pharmacy!
