Experience enables us to decipher most prescriptions. However, be assured that if we are not 100% certain of what your physician has prescribed, we will call his/her office on your behalf for clarification.
We accept MOST prescription plans or will attempt to become a provider to serve you if at all possible. The list of pharmacy providers often excludes the names of small, independent pharmacies like McElroy Pharmacy, so the best thing to do is to bring in the prescription card when you receive it. That way we can enter the necessary information into our files, answer your questions, and be prepared when you need medications…sort of "preventive medicine"!
In addition, some "greedy" insurance companies may send notifications that entice you to use "mail order" or lock you in to certain "preferred" pharmacies. Whenever possible, we will "meet or beat" their prices and are willing to match their claims. Your health and well-being are our main concerns and we are flexible enough to want to keep our patients satisfied without regard to the "almighty dollar" philosophy practiced by many of our larger competitors. We also have access to coupon and co-pay programs which may save you money on many prescription items. Ask our pharmacists if you need assistance.
Our philosophy on generic products is this: We don't dispense any products that we wouldn't give to our own families! There are many good generic products on the market. However, some products (Coumadin and Lanoxin, for example) are too important to your health and we only dispense the brand-name products for these medications. We continually strive to stay on top of current trends in the area of safety of new medications.
You have three easy ways to transfer most prescriptions to McElroy Pharmacy.
