You’re going to have a relationship with them.
The professional kind. At some point you are going to realize that coming in to get your medicine is going to feel a little less like a chore. Just like in some way, you eventually become friends with your barista or your dentist’s assistant. These are people that you will see as part of your life routine, and it would be nice to develop a relationship with them that does resemble a transaction.
You’re going to exchange personal information about your health to them.
For certain. You are definitely going to have conversations with your pharmacist that you wouldn’t necessarily have with everyone. That’s the nature of what you are there for. Maybe you don’t want anyone else to know that you are there picking up medication for something like athlete’s foot. So having a friendly pharmacist will make it easier to feel confident that your information will stay private.
You’re going to have to deal with insurance companies together.
This is a big one. If you ever have problems with your insurance carrier, it’s good to have an industry expert on your side, especially a friendly one. Pharmacists are used to dealing with those companies so you might just luck out by having one of these guys (or gals) on your side. Things tend to get done quicker and more efficiently by someone who has had to deal with them on previous occasions.
You may encounter problems.
You may one day be really really sick. Hopefully this never happens, but if you’re in a situation like that, having and more importantly, knowing your pharmacist will help you big time. If you are down for the count for whatever reason, your pharmacist may even have delivery service for you in a time of need. So it helps to have our first point already in motion. A relationship.
You may need help with something other than filling a prescriptions.
Pharmacies tend to offer more than just prescriptions. Actually a lot of times, they have a wide variety of services available for your convenience. If you ever need to print a resume, or fax over official paperwork, they may have you covered. Having a friendly pharmacist can make you feel like you've got a professional resource at your fingertips. You should call your local pharmacy to see what they have to offer and whether or not you hit it off with their staff. It could mean getting hooked up one day when you're in a bind.
Here at MG Pharmacy we take pride giving you the most friendly service imaginable. We’re here to be a resource for you everyday, and look forward to any questions or request you may have. Customer service is a huge part of being successful in this industry and it will really separate the good companies from the bad ones. No one wants to feel like the guy they're getting their medicine from (and giving their money to) doesn't care about them as a person in the least bit. You know that feeling.
