First off, I feel like the author of this article and the "Lafayette Underground" have not done their research. If you want to criticize the city government, it is your right to do so. However, to publish this article and the garbage of the "underground" about an individual pharmacy and its involvement in health care when you are not involved in it directly is very pompous. If you haven't worked in it (pharmacy), you don't know that independent pharmacies do not make large sums. They watch every penny, and work twice as hard to compete with CVS and Walmart. They care about each individual, not the masses (like Walmart).
So, you're worried that Neil is making the big bucks because the city employees are "forced" to come to Medi-Thrift? Stop. He works hard to be a good pharmacist and survive in dwindling market. This market is the market that cares about their customer. It's not Walmart or CVS. It is an INDEPENDENT. So go to your Walmart and feel like you're keeping the mayor from his kick-backs if you want, but you'll wait for 1 hour and you will be 1 prescription out of 600. You think you're not just another number? Actually, they just want meet their national quota and get you out of the way.
