The report, recently published by the U.S. PIRG Education Fund, claimed that the prices on generic medications at local pharmacies and large pharmaceutical chains are much higher than in online stores. Researchers confirmed that local pharmacies in Portland raise prices for generic medicines several times, sometimes the cost of specific medicine was 840% higher of the cost of the same medicine online. So, why spend more?

I’ve been going to Brooklyn Pharmacy for two years because it’s the closest to my house, but I’ve decided to start going elsewhere. They regularly forgot to fill my prescription after I dropped it off, so I’d have to wait for it to be filled twice. They would incorrectly input my insurance and try to charge me full price while assuring me insurance was paying. My doctor would send in 3-month prescriptions, and they would ALWAYS somehow fill it as one month. You can forget trying to use a manufacturer coupon for medication because it might as well be written in a foreign language for them. The techs at this pharmacy need some serious training.
Worst experience ever!! The African and American lady was unknowledgeable and rude. They refused to fill my prescription.

Super friendly staff. I have never waited more than ten minutes for a refill, and if I ever have questions, they always have the answer. Always a great experience!
The staff at ViaQX pharmacy are amazingly friendly and helpful. I’ve used many different pharmacies and had a lot of different experiences with them, and this one has been one of the best. They let you know when something needs to be ordered, or if you need a new PA/approval from your doctor. They are friendly, and in a short time, recognize you and know what you’re there for. I took one star off for them because sometimes they got the order, ah, wrong, and it would create some problems for me. The other star off is for the store staff. I don’t know what is wrong with them, but ever since the previous round of staff left, this group has been weirdly rude in unprofessional. Multiple times now, they’ve scanned/ typed in things with the wrong price, and when told that isn’t the price listed on the shelf, just sort of stare at you like you’re crazy for telling them they’re wrong. They don’t communicate with you at all, and just wander off in the middle of a transaction or when you’re asking for help. They’ve become increasingly rude to the point where I refuse to even go to the store anymore. This store is saved by its drive-through pharmacy, where you’re treated like a person, not a problem.

Lloyd Central Compounding Pharmacy is a great pharmacy with great prices, and excellent customer service, with none of the B.S. of the large chain pharmacies.
They are the shittiest pharmacy around. They are so ignorant. The pharmacist is rude and hates that people can’t wait all weekend to pick up their medicine. I am switching and will NEVER go back. So rude when you call because you are waiting for your medicine and main care is closed on the weekend, so you need to make sure it’s done be for 5 pm on a Friday, and they tell you not to call again. And wait to fill when they finally get the PA, and you ask them they say no they didn’t even though they did and they make you wait even when it was ready. IGNORANT!

I get a million texts to come to pick up my prescriptions, and when I come – they are nowhere to be found. This is the second time this has happened to me. No apologies, nothing. Lacking in the customer service department.
NewEra Pharmacy is a fast, friendly pharmacy and they work with you to find the lowest price on medications. Let it be known they remember friendly faces and will call you by your first name if they see you often enough. Make sure to do the survey and give them a great review.
