Very stuffy at the inital greet, Gestapo stopped me outside the front door and demanded paper's (paper's Gustav!!). I offered the papers while still standing outside the doorway, in front of God and everybody (what if my mom had driven by). I asked why I couldn't have come in first, it was explained that it was Policy. My paperwork and I.D. were whisked off to another location (before I even entered), and I was demanded a tour when I finally did enter (wasn't asked). With a quick tour from receptions desk to the Admin office, to the Library, and massage therapy roooooomm! I was then shown my way back to the Admin's office and made comfortable while I filled out the typical paperwork for the collective (3 pages). After I completed the paperwork, I then received a number (a number…yes, really a number) to be granted access to the display counters. A young lady greeted me with great professionalism and care. She took the time to go over several med options and I clearly felt as if she knew what she was talking about (she didn’t have to look at the board or cards to give the answers). She was very willing to give up a discount for seniors (I don’t look that old), and did give a nice discount for me being a vet. Which I haven’t received yet from other collectives (thumbs up for that category).
Short of being a Pharmacy, this is what probably a well ran dispensary should be cloned from. I might not have enjoyed the regiment of the establishment, but I couldn’t overlook the attitude of the environment which is high class and professional.
The quality of the dispensary, the goods and the personnel were spot on. Meds were great, staff very helpful and patient. Collective agreement was reasonable. Would return for my next perscription! Thanks Rick
Being New and picking up equipment from Paramount Imports (great shop), Stepped back to the MHCP. Being new and not knowing what to expect, found the door locked and what may have been a secret code (decals saying knock knock) wasn't sure if they were open or not. The knock was produced and the buzzer released on command. Not knowing what to expect next I entered with caution. Opened the door and was halted by an unsatisfied worker that had to perform her job (or it appeared to me). Explained that I was new and what did I need to get my meds. She shoved a collective agreement of some four pages long and attempted to read me my rights. At this time I became very uncomfortable and unaware of how things would turn out. As I was filling out my paper work another person came in and was asking about freebies and the document clerk exclaimed no freebies. Although in the magazine (culture) in the lobby stated Free Pre Roll 25% off donation with coupon, and free pre roll for "New Members", Daily Specials, Veterans Discounts (which I am), New Member Gifts. My wife saw it in the magazine while I was in the dispensary part of the building and was unable to text me since I couldn't have any communication devices on me. So I grabbed an edible and left since the prices quoted to me by several of the helpful friends of the 420 card Evals (what a melting pot of people that come together for a cause!) it seemed high in price so the low rating for the bud is for non purchase only (maybe they should give a non purchase category) for bud only. The medible was ok, dosage seemed reasonable, but after taste was a little strong. With possible turnaround of this location you would imagine that this could be a great dispensary and not just a convient store. Helpful staff and change from the impenetrable club house decor, to a more open atmosphere would be a benefit. Leaving the outer door open and a locking door for the dispensary would add a more appealing entrance. It was a first impression.
