A true neighborhood pharmacy where the patient can rely on a one-to-one, face-to-face relationship with an experienced pharmacist who takes time to address all personal health needs on an individual level.  In addition to free consultation, a huge selection of services is available, including free home delivery of medications!

Patient counseling, in-store refills, compounding, specialized billing, easy prescription transfers, travel medications, pain management, caregiver support, home healthcare, notary public, copying & fax, are photo services are part of what makes this a neighborhood staple. Hollywood Pharmacy will also create a bubble pack for your prescriptions, dividing daily doses out into clearly labeled morning, afternoon, and evening portions. The convenient package is easily readable.

Not only does Hollywood Pharmacy accept over 3,000 prescription plans and offer all of the above services, it also sells medical supplies, health & beauty products, herbal supplements, men & women’s body care, diapers & maternity products, household items, balloons & party favors, gift cards, sunglasses, and general convenience store items. Wheel chairs, crutches, and other items may be special-ordered.

The moment you walk in Hollywood Pharmacy and see the sort of friendly conversations customers enjoy with the Pharmacists behind the counter, you will understand why they keep coming back.  Hollywood Pharmacy is a neighborhood-oriented pharmacy with the sort of services and products that you’d expect to find in a corporate drug store, but with a staff that offers each customer the kind of personal support that has been lost in chain pharmacies.

Making sure that customers understand their medicines and how to use them is of utmost importance to the staff at Hollywood Pharmacy. “I really appreciate his thoroughness and politeness” a Saturday afternoon customer filling a prescription says; “everybody loves Dr. Clem.” Clement Adenupebi, Rph is one several partners in the business. “Do you have any questions about your prescription?” he asks before she leaves. “No, you already answered them before” she says with a smile.

Dr. Clem is glad to accommodate customers’ needs by offering home visits and free consultation, and by taking the initiative to make sure customers can afford their meds on a monthly basis. “We work close with the customer and their doctor, and don’t allow them to go home empty-handed.  If their necessary medications are expensive, we find suitable generic meds, or let them purchase smaller amounts up front and the rest of the prescription later.”

Hollywood Pharmacy is a great place for students, working people, and the elderly – who Dr. Clem feels have been especially neglected – to conveniently address their needs. “The purpose of this store is to have a personal interaction with the customer, which has been lost” he says, as he waves goodbye to another satisfied customer. The next time you need a prescription filled or a simple pick-me-up, stop by Hollywood Pharmacy, and discover what other drug stores have lost.
