Great Pharmacy – This pharmacy is great. It is very neat and organized, and I got very good service. I would recommend anyone to this pharmacy, whether your local or from out of town. I will definitely continue to use this pharmacy.
Excellent Source for Testosterone for Trans Guys – Are you a trans guy without health insurance or whose insurance does not cover testosterone prescriptions? After my Healthnet HMO denied my testosterone gel prescription and I learned that a one month supply out of pocket is $250.00, my doctor referred me to a compound pharmacist to formulate a topical testosterone cream, my preferred method.
I discovered Rexall and Sam, the longtime owner and Compound Pharmacist, took great care in ensuring my prescription was formulated precisely and was affordable. Upon understanding that I am transgender, he continued to be incredibly friendly and humbly offered personalized, expert, and quality advice. I can't imagine using another pharmacy for my testosterone.
Rexall is the only owner-run compounding pharmacy left in San Francisco, and what could be better than supporting a local, neighborhood-based small business?! Sam maintains a small-town-feel with strong values to strive to understand the pharmaceutical needs of everybody who walks through his door.
Hours open not helpful to working/busy people – The hours for this pharmacy are no longer convenient for most people: Monday-Friday 10am- 6pm, closed on Sunday. I made the mistake of getting to the pharmacy late on a Saturday and not realizing the place was closed on Sunday, went without my medication for two days. Nowhere in the pharmacy did I see any notice that they were closed on Sunday. Reliable Rexall pharmacy hours are awful for working people. Be warned.
Editorial Review – For more than 60 years, compounding pharmacy prepares customized medications and ointments. Nutritional supplements and other treatments available.
Personalized Service – I had an arthritis condition that required me to take copious amounts of Ibuprofen, but it gave me gastric problems. I never considered using topical cremes compounded by the pharmacist/owner, Sam Ching. He is a goldmine of information and he really cares about getting the results you seek.
a druggist who knows things – Not many pharmacists can actually make the medications that cure. Sam Ching's knowledge is based on 40 years of experience in the business.
