Pharmacy work requires its own special laws and regulations and with it comes so many wonderful problems.

How many times do you find yourself saying any of these:

  • Your insurance sets the price
  • That is your medical card, not your prescription card
  • Your prescription is expired ... Yes even though you still have refills

If so this is the place to be!
