Pharmaceutical companies in Illinois are raising the price tag of medicines to take advantage of patients’ desperate situation and their families. For example, a course of anti-cancer chemotherapy can cost millions. At the same time, generics that have the same effectiveness, but costs much cheaper, are not allowed on the market. They only can be bought online at various websites that are not always reliable, so you need to be careful when purchasing these drugs. To save you some time, we selected these four online pharmacies with the highest user ratings.
Riverside Family Pharmacy (Rating: 5.0)
https://www.riversidehealthcare.org/ | 350 N Wall St, Kankakee, IL 60901, United States | (815) 935-4356
Have been using Riverside Family Pharmacy pharmacy for around 15 years, and they have been shipping me product fo 10. I’ve never experienced any problems until last week, and it was very minor. The staff is very helpful and courteous, but today Leo went above and beyond to take care of my little issue. He was so helpful, polite, and took care of this in a very prompt manner. Thank you, Leo, and everyone at City Rexall Drugs Pharmacy.
Good reviews shouldn’t count if they came from the staff. The owners are totally incompetent on how to run a compounding pharmacy and don’t realize how important it was to keep loyal, dependable, and dedicated employees that cared about the patients. Most of the staff there now are old employees that were terminated for extremely serious reasons and were rehired back out of desperation. I denied this job with the new owners because of the communication he had with us. He cut our pay due to low or numbers. When I denied it, I laughed and said we would see your numbers in a few months and. It didn’t take long for people to start pulling prescriptions from them. Just an FYI. I’m not a disgruntled employee. I have an amazing job and life right now, but its not a safe environment for your sterile or regular compounds. So find a good pharmacy ask your Dr for recommendations.
Jewel-Osco Pharmacy (Rating: 3.3)
https://jewelosco.com/ | 446 S Washington Ave, Kankakee, IL 60901, United States | (815) 935-2041
Pharmacist Josh J. has always been a straightforward stand-up gentleman and candid, approachable pharmacist with a depth of knowledge and the patience to share. I moved and consequently moved to a closer Walgreens. However, I am moving all my prescriptions back to the Pflumm Walgreens into Jewel-Osco Pharmacy‘s hands.
This pharmacy will not answer phone calls if they are busy, even if you get another store employee to try to transfer the call to the pharmacy. So if your call is an emergency, there is no possible way to get through to them. I would recommend a different pharmacy that actually answers their calls.
ViaQX Pharmacy (Rating: 4.7)
https://viaqx.com/ | 225 W Court St, Kankakee, IL 60901, United States | (815) 929-3451
ViaQX is the best pharmacy in town! Katrina, Melissa, and Jason are terrific. Very courteous and professional. How great that downtown has this wonderful pharmacy!
Amazing Pharmacy!!! And to top it off downtown, fantastic! Couldn’t get any better. Customer service is amazing, and they deliver to top it off! Would definitely recommend this company to anybody. Y’all should give them a try.
Presence Pharmacy (Rating: 4.1)
https://www.amitahealth.org/ | 1475 Harvard Dr, Kankakee, IL 60901, United States | (815) 936-3644
Presence Pharmacy is the worst place you could go for any script. The owner by the name of Ash will lie and say things that are not true. He will fill certain scripts for people and not some for others. He is very biased and rude. If you need scripts filled on time, I will go to Walmart, Smith’s, Costco, CVS, or even Sam’s club. At least these places have a good reputation. I did get advice from a few people to not come here, and I did anyway. I now regret not listening and hope to save someone from going. This place stole my medication and who knows what they did with it. I DO NOT RECOMMEND EVEN FOR COUGH DROPS, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE.
This is the best pharmacy. Ed or John are always helpful at explaining the medication that you’re taking the service in the store from the employees is always wonderful and helpful.
