Advantages to Using an Independent Pharmacy

Do you know the benefits to using an independently-owned pharmacy?
Patients of Hospital Discount Pharmacy consider themselves part of a pharmacy family. The rewards of that are boundless! You will be pleasantly surprised how quickly we will greet you by name when you walk in our door.
When your pharmacist knows you, your history, your family members, your life story, you are so much more than a medication profile and a refill number. This improves safety and leads to better overall patient care. You truly just don’t know what you’re missing if you’re not using an independent pharmacy!
At Hospital Discount Pharmacy, our staff members actually LOVE their jobs. Several of our staff members have been working here for over 20 years! Our patients interact with the same pharmacy staff members year after year after year. At Hospital Discount Pharmacy, we try to ensure we have plenty of pharmacy employees on duty at all times. This means you will receive attention right when you walk in the door or right when you call us. First time patients are shocked at how quickly and efficiently their prescriptions are filled.
Another benefit of being an independently-operated pharmacy is that we have control over our inventory. Hospital Discount Pharmacy carefully chooses an inventory designed to provide just the right prescription products and over the counter supplies. We can make special orders for customers, and even keep certain things in stock just for you! Most of our orders arrive the following business day.
Hospital Discount Pharmacy is happy to offer delivery to our patients who are unable to get to our pharmacy. Our daily delivery service is FREE if you live within a 5 mile radius.  If you would like to use our pharmacy, but have concerns about business hours, talk to us! We will see if we can work something out for you.
We recently extended our business hours to accommodate as many patients as possible. Monday through Friday we are open from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. We’re also open 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays.
One of the reasons we hear that people don’t use independent pharmacies is they believe they can only use particular chain pharmacies due to their insurance. While some insurance companies dictate which pharmacies their patients can use, sometimes they just don’t advertise the fact that you CAN use an independent pharmacy.  Usually the copay is exactly the same. That can be true EVEN when the chain store is owned by the insurance company. All it takes is a phone call for us to transfer your prescription and find out!
We may not have space for a drive-through, but a phone call can bring us right out to you. If you have small children, or can’t just get out of the car and run in for some other reason, call us when you get here!  We are more than happy to Car-Hop for you! (but we don’t do roller skates!)  ; )
Stop by our pharmacy or call us today! 405-348-1677  We look forward to the chance to earn your business!
