VALLEY FORGE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Good Neighbor Pharmacy – a national independent pharmacy network offered through AmerisourceBergen – announced that it has been ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Chain Drug Store Pharmacies” in the J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Pharmacy Study. This marks the eighth time that Good Neighbor Pharmacy has earned the achievement in the last 10 years.
“The study confirms what we know to be true about healthcare today: patients trust the care they receive at their local, independent community pharmacy and value them as a one-of-a-kind healthcare destination,” said Brian Nightengale, President, Good Neighbor Pharmacy and SVP, Community & Specialty Pharmacy, AmerisourceBergen. “As the pharmacist’s role in patient care grows, it’s critical that they work to deepen relationships and better communicate with their patients. At AmerisourceBergen and Good Neighbor Pharmacy, we develop tools and programs that allow independent pharmacists to share their unique stories while spending the most possible time providing care.”
This year, Good Neighbor Pharmacy ranked the highest in overall satisfaction among chain drug store pharmacies. Good Neighbor Pharmacy received a score of 914 while the average was 842. Additionally, Good Neighbor Pharmacy ranked highest in five factors: Prescription Ordering and Filling Process; Pharmacist; Non-Pharmacist Staff; Cost Competitiveness; and Store.
