I would like to personally apologize for the trouble you have had with obtaining your prescription medications. I'm also sorry to hear that our phone system was not working and would not allow you to leave a voicemail. I will check with the vendor if this is still an issue. I am sorry for the difficult interactions that you have had with our staff. I will work hard to train them to handle difficult situations more professionally.
