This pharmacy is nothing but a total rip-off, unprofessional and rude. I was prescribed something called the 'house powder' a topical anti-biotic for an ear infection. Oh, and by the way; this medicine is not covered by ANY insurance company. The pharmacist told me that it's made of older anti-biotics that are no longer in use today because they were found to be toxic when taken internally. But, they work just fine topically. The capsules cost $20 for just 3 of them, which this pharmacist states should last 14 to 21 days. No way it can last that long. It barely got me through 3 days. First of all they tell you the powder has to be blown into the ear with this apparatus that costs $30.00. He swears he's not making any money on it and not marking it up. That's what it costs him. Well, I found that same thing on the web for $15. And, if I can find it; surely a licensed pharmacist with long-time vendors can work a better price than $30.

The apparatus looks like a cheap baby's nasal aspirator only it has a tip that comes off and you place the powder inside what looks like an ear dropper with the bulb on the other end. The pharmacist walked me through loading this which entails pulling the capsule apart which immediately wastes at least 1/8 of the capsule contents. He states he 'over-fills' them for that reason! Bunk!. Once you break the capsule apart, you have to dump the very fine powder into the tube along with 1/2 of the empty capsule --- there goes another 1/8 or more powder. Then he said you have to kind of prime it & test it by puffing out a couple of puffs to make sure the powder is coming out. Waste again! Well, guess what? Sometimes it does and sometimes the half capsule that he said you can just 'throw in there' blocks the powder; so it doesn't. So, you never know 1. IF you have administered any powder in your ear because it's impossible to feel and you cannot see the level of the powder in the tube because of the empty capsule. 2. You never know how much you have administered for the same reasons.

When I called today this pharmacist was very rude & unprofessional and said with a snide tone "Oh yea, you're wasting it. I can sell you two more capsules for $10 "

I intend to give the ENT that prescribed this "house powder" a full accounting of what happens when a patient leaves his office with a prescription that ONLY this rip-off pharmacy can fill. I hate to think that young mothers on limited incomes are falling prey to this total racket.

Charles the owner apparantly has a problem with overweight people. Told me that I had extremely large calves in a not so nice manner. I was looking for some support hose. Did not expect such unproffessionalism from a pharmacist, and this guy is the owner.... a wonder he is still in business. Went to another pharmacy and they were very pleasant and helpful.

Charles at Medpark is exactly what a Pharmacist should be. He is knowledgeable and friendly and goes the extra mile to take care of you. Medpark is convieniently located with hours which make it easy to pick up your prescription. They can get hard to find items for you and have no problems special ordering items if they do not have it in stock. Medpark is also a compounding pharmacy so they can make the specialized medications which can be hard to find. An excellent pharmacy.
