Target Complaint - Target Pharmacists are Horrible
ARVADA, COLORADO -- I used to love Target and I trusted them with my prescriptions. I have chronic pain due to a surgery that has had many complications on my body. I am not a drug addict in the least bit but I am constantly finding myself to be accused of being one simply because I have a monthly supply of pain pills. Big deal, what do these pharmacists truly know about dealing with this kind of pain on a daily basis?? Anyway the first time I took my prescription to the pharmacist intuition took over once I reached my car and I decided to count the pills. I was supposed to have 60 and come to find out they had given me 50. Knowing they would not believe me, I went back into Target wanting to let the pharmacist know that what he did was not right in the least bit and I would like my money back. He gave me the speech on how they count this stuff twice, it's written on the bottle, they supposedly keep a record of it. He took the bottle and counted. He told me I was right, there were 10 pills missing but it was not his problem. He swore up and down that he put 60 into that bottle and accused me of trying to get more. Complete bull. I immediately asked to talk to a manager but surprise surprise no one was there. I called the police and reported that pharmacy right away. I have told all of my friends and family to not trust that place whatsoever. Besides that last time I went there, I found that the pharmacy is extremely SLOW and do not follow through on their customer service. I would wait for DAYS for them to call my doctor to confirm a prescription and I would be the one to call and see if it had been taken care of.
They do not care whatsoever that there are people out there, in pain, waiting for them to do their jobs. They just do not care and it is sick. I would LOVE to find an honest and compassionate place to be able to fill my prescriptions but I think my quest might be a lost cause unfortunately.
RESPONSE TO SOME OF YOU:
Read closely...I went into the pharmacy KNOWING full well they would not believe me, people. I have been with Kaiser for years and never experienced a shortage at any time with them. The first time I go into a Target pharmacy (I-70 and Wads.) they short me. I had never once experienced this before, am I supposed to pick out which pharmacies I ask to count and which ones I trust? No, I have a life. I wanted whoever was in that pharmacy to KNOW that what they did was wrong. Obviously getting my monthly supply is not an issue so why would I want to have them counted each and every time I went. The pills weren't the issue here, it was the lack of integrity behind that counter.
