“I've been using Upstate Pharmacy for about a year...they are wonderful. They are not just a business, they are always there and really care about me. I am so appreciative of them, it is so great to know that I don't have to go a pharmacy when I am not feeling well or when the weather is bad. The delivery is so convenient and they deliver all hours of the day and night when I have had emergencies. They always work with me in scheduling delivery times according to my schedule, and the drivers are always pleasant...I can't put into words how much the interaction with the pharmacists and employees of Upstate means to me..”
