10/10! Honestly they have been AMAZING! I have a spinal disease and it's hard to find a NEW local doctor that is willing to take me on as a patient so I have been getting my old doctor to email the scripts since my move to the island in the last half of this year. They have always received them and processed ready for collection. (So Inna bad pain day it's a simple in and out to collect my meds). The staff are always friendly and helpful and it's a convenient location with plenty of parking. Definitely recommend them👍👍

Nandita and her team are second to none. They are so very supportive and care about their customers. We have been helped to source products for ongoing diabetes management that has alleviated distress and stress. We cannot thank you enough. Thank you so much, Andy and Ruth👍
