VALLEY FORGE, Pa.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Good Neighbor Pharmacy®, a network of more than 3,200 independently owned community pharmacies across the United States, achieved the highest customer satisfaction ranking among chain drug stores in the J.D. Power 2013 U.S. National Pharmacy Study℠. The pharmacy network was previously awarded with the honor in 2010 and tied for the recognition in 2011.
“Good Neighbor Pharmacy is honored that our owners and pharmacists have again been recognized by their patients for their commitment to providing superior customer satisfaction”
The syndicated study, now in its seventh year, measures overall customer satisfaction. The results are based on the experiences and perceptions of pharmacy patients. The key factors that contributed to customer satisfaction include: prescription ordering; store; cost; non-pharmacist staff; and pharmacist. The 2013 National Pharmacy Study was based on responses from more than 13,500 customers who filled a new prescription or refilled a prescription during the three months prior to the survey, which was fielded between July and August 2013.
“Good Neighbor Pharmacy is honored that our owners and pharmacists have again been recognized by their patients for their commitment to providing superior customer satisfaction,” says Scott Robinson, group vice president of Good Neighbor Pharmacy. “Our independent pharmacists play a vital role in their patients’ healthcare and we are proud to support them in providing an unmatched level of personalized care through our valuable services, such as our immunization program and Prescription Savings Club. In an ever-changing healthcare industry, we look forward to continuing to work with our members to bring them the resources they have come to trust and rely on from Good Neighbor Pharmacy to remain competitive and best serve their patients.”
“We know our patients by name – they’re not just a number. We are good neighbors, and we open up our doors so that patients can experience the difference in the care and service a Good Neighbor Pharmacy provides. This recognition is a demonstration from them that we, as community pharmacists, practice pharmacy the way it was meant to be,” said Roger Accardi of Accardi Clinical Pharmacy in Orange City, FL, a longtime Good Neighbor Pharmacy member and 2013 Good Neighbor Pharmacy of the Year.
