    Been going here for over 15 years. Small town feel in the city. Pharmacists treat you as actual humans are super friendly and kind. Always willing to go the extra mile to get info on drugs or contact your doctor. Michelle is incredible, she is awesome. Can’t imagine ever going to a big box store pharmacy after coming here.
