Independent Pharmacy Rated Highest in J. D. Power’s Annual Survey.

Each year, J. D. Power rates pharmacies and the profession of pharmacy. In the 2017 ranking, which was just released in September, J. D. Power found that Good Neighbor Pharmacy (of which we are a part as an independent retail drugstore) “ranks highest overall among brick-and-mortar chain drug stores.”

What does that ranking mean? It means that independent pharmacies, under the umbrella of the Good Neighbor Pharmacy label, are the most loved and highest rated among all pharmacies.

Good Neighbor Pharmacy features the slogan we love and that you see broadcast on our windows: “Locally Owned. Locally Loved.” We think that slogan sums up the J. D. Power rating.

Additionally, each year, Gallup takes a look at the honest and ethical standards among various professional fields. In healthcare, pharmacists and nurses typically rank number one and number two with having very high standards. Not surprisingly, Congress ranks at the very bottom of the ratings with 59% of respondents saying their honesty and ethics were very low.

At the end of 2016, pharmacists came in second place after nurses in the annual Gallop poll. The polling showed that 67% of those who were surveyed thought pharmacists were very honest and ethical. Nurses, by the way, were rated very honest and ethical by 84% of respondents.

The National Community Pharmacists Association’s (NCPA) CEO, B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA, issued the following statement about the Gallup survey: “We commend community pharmacists across the country on their impressive showing in the latest Gallup survey of Americans’ views of honesty and ethical standards. People continue to hold pharmacists in very high regard. In this survey covering 22 professions, pharmacists are the second most trusted. 

“It is time for payers and policymakers to better utilize the accessibility, expertise and public trust in pharmacists. NCPA will carry that message into 2017 as health care reform efforts accelerate and the shift toward a value-based care system continues.”
