We began a mission at Carson Drug to save as many South Dakotans as we can from corporate chain and mail order pharmacies. Based on our first-hand experience, we believe these institutions put themselves before their customers, and we want to ensure it remains the other way around. Here’s why:
You can count on us to always be accessible. We have opened the pharmacy up at midnight when needed, and we will let customers use a charge account if they need a few extra days. We are here to speak with you face-to-face, or if you need to call about a question you can expect to be connected immediately to a human as opposed to pre-recorded call options.
Patient relationships are at the center of what we do at Carson Drug. Our pharmacists and staff are at your disposal to help you understand the complexities of your medication and offer tools and advice on how to remember medication times. We believe it is ultimately this relationship that plays the most integral role in a patient’s adherence to medication and safe, effective treatment.
Based on our experience, this is not the way corporate chain and mail order pharmacies conduct business. If you believe you are saving money with the use of mail order for your maintenance medications, please consider the following article:
