Thanks to under-appreciated pharmacists at Wal-Mart


I recently made the transition from MediCal to Medicare. It may sound easy, but it’s far from it.

I found I now had to choose from multiple Medicare insurance plans as well as numerous prescription drug plans.

Meanwhile, it was almost two weeks before I could receive the medications I needed. It took that long before I was able to find an affordable prescription plan.

I really just want to thank Alicia and Kerri at Wal-Mart pharmacy for all their help. They were awesome and very informative as to options available.

On a daily basis I know that they must contend with angry customers who can’t get their medications for whatever reason. These customers don’t seem to realize that it’s not the pharmacy’s fault.

These two ladies, Alicia and Kerri, have gone to extremes to assist me, even before I started receiving Medicare.

I would just like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to them both for going above and beyond in their assistance.
