Illinois-based drugstore chain serves neighborhoods with fully stocked stores and modern amenities..
Founded in 1901 in Chicago by Charles R. Walgreen Sr., this neighborhood pharmacy has grown to be one of the nation's largest drugstore chains. Each store carries 25,000 different items--from cleaning products to electronics and greeting cards. Store features include a computerized system connecting pharmacies nationwide via satellite, grocery-store food aisles, one-hour photofinishing and an automated phone system for prescription refills and pre-arranged pickup times. Other services include in-store flu shots and childhood immunizations.
Bad Compounds. I was lured from my regular compounding pharmacy to Walgreens with the promise they would be able to bill my insurance. (I usually pay cash up front and get reimbursed) Not only was my "copay" only a few bucks cheaper than the regular bill, I ended up with a gross runny cream that left a nasty film on my skin. I switched back to my regular pharmacy.
Unreliable Pharmacy. We have had to have medicines remixed 3 times at this pharmacy. The staff does just not seem to care enough to make sure the quality of their compounded medicines is reasonable. Get compounded medicines somewhere else.
