Domain Name Information
Almost every website online will have a domain name address that you can check the details of. From the records about this pharmacy, we can see that they have been online since 2012, which is good. The domain name doesn’t expire until 2024 either and is another indication that this pharmacy is likely to be legit.
We aren’t given any information about who the owner of the store is in the records, however. A privacy service has been used, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the pharmacy won’t be safe to use or that the owner is intentionally hiding their details from customers.
This pharmacy gives addresses for two business locations. When we check these addresses, we find that they are real business locations for their pharmacy stores.
This is a good indication that the pharmacy business is legit since it is backed by real-world locations that we can confirm.
The pharmacy does display a regulatory seal for an accreditation program they are members of. The seal is for UCAP, which is the United Credentialing and Accreditation Program that is administered by the NABP. This is an accreditation program for compounding pharmacies that is run by the National Association for Boards of Pharmacy.
We can also check with the Indiana Board of Pharmacy, to make sure that this pharmacy is legit. Running these checks shows us that they are indeed accredited as they should be.
The pharmacy offers prescription services as well as compounding to meet patient needs. They specialize in the following among other treatment options:
- Palliative care
- Men’s health drugs
They sell generics as well as brand-name pills, though they do not give details of the products they sell or their prices on the website. This means that if you use this website you are restricted to refills and prescription transfers.
This means that we cannot check the prices on the pharmacy site because they are unavailable. The meds they sell to customers, however, are coming from reliable sources since they are a correctly licensed pharmacy.
To encourage customer loyalty, this pharmacy is running a rewards program. This will allow customers up to $70 in-store credits if they can save 15000 points. However, you cannot spend your store credits on prescription medication orders.
The pharmacy doesn’t provide information about payment options on the site, though this is likely because you cannot buy medication directly there.
While you can place orders for prescription drugs, either refills or transfers, you will be expected to pay when you collect them. They might take payment for your order over the phone if you are having your meds delivered, but you can’t pay online.
This pharmacy does offer discreet delivery for medicine orders. They don’t provide details on the pharmacy site, however, for how much this will cost or the expected delivery times. It could be the case that deliveries are only local to the pharmacy locations rather than offering courier or mail delivery.
There is a page for MedChestRx.com reviews on the pharmacy site. This page gives you a few select quotes from customer comments.
Reading through these comments, they appear to be genuine though there is no way to guarantee this. Since these have been posted on the pharmacy’s own website, it naturally isn’t going to include any negativity.
Feedback is available on Google, Facebook, and Yelp. This is better as the pharmacy has less control over comments posted by customers. The comments on these sites are extremely good.
They have a perfect 5-star rating from 24 customers comments on Google, for example. These comments appear to be from genuine customers who are very happy with the service they have received.
There are many reasons to think that this pharmacy would be a safe place to purchase your medications from. They are correctly accredited, have been in business for a long time, and have some great feedback.
The downsides with his pharmacy are that you cannot easily make purchases online most of the time, and this isn’t going to be a viable choice if you don’t live local to one of their stores.
