I was given 3 prescriptions in preparation for a heart nand said the pharmacist needed to verify them.(?) The pharmacist ask why I needed these meds and was curious to why the doctor (cardiologist, highly rated) would give me aspirin(81mg) in preparation of the cath. She asked if I wanted her to call the doctor about this!
The doctor specifically told me to take the aspirin with other med so I told the pharmacist no, I was ok with the meds. She left a went over to a telephone to call the doctors office anyway. At this point I was getting upset thinking the doctor would think I was questioning his advise. The main complaint is this lady was out of line.
I told her I thought the doctor probably had a little more education than her and if she didn't give me the meds, I was going to call the doctor to tell him to send the script to another drugstore. I have never had my prescriptions questioned by a pharmacist and then take it upon themselves to insert themselves into my doctor and my healthcare. I might understand if it was a scheduled drug of some type but this was about baby aspirin. I had to cause a scene to get my prescriptions when this never would have occurred if a balanced, competent pharmacist had been in the pharmacy.
I will take my prescriptions to another store that does not over reach their limits of service.
This store is in Bremen, GA. Valerie Hawkins
Product or Service Mentioned: Walmart Pharmacist.
Reason of review: Pharmacist insisted on knowing why I needed the meds prescribed, what kind of procedure I was having and questioned a well qualified cardiologist treatment. She was out of bounds and over reached her authority. .
Preferred solution: Bring this to the attention of the person over the pharmacy at the Walmart in Bremen, GA. I have never had a prescription questioned by a pharmacist and was humilified that she was going to question a recongnized cardiologist..
Walmart Cons: Pharmacist prying into my health issues, Pharmacist trying to overide doctor.
