Wednesday I did some Christmas shopping after work . Only I don’t want to write about it, because I don’t want anybody guessing what I got them for Christmas or — even worse — getting their hopes up for something I didn’t get them. However, I can mention one stop I made: the Medicine Shoppe in Ilion, NY.
I had two prescriptions to pick up. My doctor had sent one over after a telephone consultation. The other was a refill I had called in this morning, using their handy automated service. I shan’t say anything more about them, though, because, you know, HIPPA.
Since the new prescription had been the result of a phone thing, I still had a couple of questions (even when it’s not over the phone, I still don’t think of all my questions at the time). When the lady checking me out asked if I had questions for the pharmacist, I said yes. The pharmacist was extremely helpful and very nice. They have a discreet little area to sit for consultations, so I did not have to worry about anybody hearing my business (they are probably not interested anyways, but you never know).
I was, as always, pleased with my transaction. I heartily recommend the Medicine Shoppe in Ilion to anyone in the area in need of a pharmacist’s services. I don’t think I am losing my Mohawk Valley Girl cred to say so, either, because Medicine Shoppe is a franchise. This one is locally owned and operated. They are located at 10 Central Ave., Ilion, phone number 315-894-7283.
