β€œPower tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. PBMs have amassed profits, but their power continues to increase especially because of this vertical integration.”

Great job, Randy! πŸ‘

Does the pharmacy currently have any COVID boosters available? I had both doses of the Phizer vaccine earlier this year at this location. Thank you kindly.
Randy McDonough Towncrest Pharmacy, Flip the Pharmacy Reflections: "Too many times, I hear other providers (pharmacists included) who tell me that in the community setting do not provide direct patient care or clinical services. This is just not true. In fact, where would our communities be today if we were not part of the solution to the pandemic. I would also like to add that we had to do all of this being cognizant of our employees and patients’ safety, watching our cash flow and operations closely, and adding new services to an already stressed system."
