Generally speaking, is there less interaction with patients in pharmacy as opposed to any other medical field, dentistry, optometry, nursing, etc.? I used to work as a tech at a retail pharmacy and it always seemed as if the pharmacist was spending the majority of his time getting doctor call-in prescriptions or bustling over problems dealing with insurance companies and trying to get in contact with them. People would wait at the counter waiting to speak to the pharmacist regarding their medications, and would walk out after a few minutes after realizing how busy we were. What are some pros and cons of retail and hospital pharmacy? Do you find the work rewarding?
