ReTell Pharmacy

Guys. I can't tell you how excited I am to begin the "In The Trenches" series where I get to shut up and hear from YOU. But first, I vent (of course) about how frustrating it can be for prescribers to e-scribe Paxlovid, Molnupiravir, etc without first calling to ask if you have it in stock. We also bring up the news that we might be giving out N95 masks to patients from the government (yay?). And, finally, we begin "In The Trenches" series by talking with fellow pharmacist Sam Sciotti about work before covid vs during covid. We also touch on vaccine appointment strategies at his pharmacy and...

Giving 200%, Omicron-Specific Vaccine, Patient Interruptions  show art Giving 200%, Omicron-Specific Vaccine, Patient Interruptions

ReTell Pharmacy

This week on the podcast, I'm in a better headspace and we get into SO much including: the snow days in Nashville (basically a vent session), the expectation of giving 200% everyday at work, and more news on this Omicron Variant-specific vaccine. We end with a hilarious patient of the week and that feeling when you're in the middle of a million things and a patient interrupts your tasks to ask a simple OTC question. Remember friends, you're not alone.  Thank you guys for all of your love and support each and every week. Keep it up by connecting with me through and and let me know what's...

WE'RE OUT OF HOME COVID TESTS, Flurona?, Medications On TV show art WE'RE OUT OF HOME COVID TESTS, Flurona?, Medications On TV

ReTell Pharmacy

Yikes. Not gonna lie, I was a bit on the easily-triggered side this week. I just left work right before recording... you get it. Still, such a great time hanging with you all, as usual! Even though it's a shorter show, we jump into quite a bit including: At-Home Covid Tests... We're Out... Please stop asking. Also, a positive pediatric patient, a few vaccine updates, and that thing patients do when they ask if you have a medication they've seen on a tv commercial but they have NO CLUE what is or even what it's used for. You feel any of that? Yeah, you're not alone my friends. Enjoy. ...

Patients Who Negotiate, New Year Pharmacy Issues, We Did It!   show art Patients Who Negotiate, New Year Pharmacy Issues, We Did It!

ReTell Pharmacy

I can't believe it's the last show of 2021. Let's end the year with a bang, shall we? On the show this week: a sappy thank you from me, prescribers who write "2021" instead of "2022" on prescriptions, and patients who are told rules, laws, etc and try to negotiate around them. Finally, because of the new year, we are all going to face challenges with patients and their insurance... let's talk about a few and maybe some "solutions". Happy New Year, ReTellers!  -M  Reach out through and if you have a response to an episode, patient of the week, tech of the week, etc. After all,...

Ho Ho Ho ReTellers! That's right, this week is the Christmas episode! I know some of you will unfortunately have to work on the holiday but please know that you're not alone. First, I spend way too much time talking Christmas movies. Next up, an inspiring response from the ReTell Community and challenges with giving a pediatric vaccine. We touch on when an allergy isn't truly an allergy and, finally, my wish for you and your pharmacy team this year. May this be a wonderful and restful time to celebrate with you and your families. I'm so thankful for you all, Merry Christmas!  -M ...

The Anniversary Of Covid Vaccines, Pharmacist Auctioneers, 4 Word Fix show art The Anniversary Of Covid Vaccines, Pharmacist Auctioneers, 4 Word Fix

ReTell Pharmacy

Welp, we have ourselves another Friday morning recording. But it was a BLAST, nonetheless. This week on the show, we talk about what it's like to get a compliment from a patient during a corporate visit (spoiler: it's the best). Also, the CDC now officially says Moderna/Pfizer is the way to go... buh-bye J & J. Speaking of vaccines, it's been exactly one year since the first dose was given, so that's insane... and also, in my opinion, a proud moment for us. We end with Pharmacist Auctioneers (self-explanatory) and how to fix pharmacy using 4 words. Merry Christmas, ReTellers!  -M...

Just when I think it will be a shorter episode, I forget how fun it is to hang (and vent) with you all. Also, let's be honest, you guys really brought the fire this week with your submissions. On this early December episode we cover how 2021 went by faster than any other year, I debut a new sound effect, and take a moment to thank YOU for your support and love sent my way via Spotify Wrapped. Also, there's a new variant in town... and it honestly sounds like a robot. We end with realizing that Oklahoma and Louisiana are, in fact, NOT the same state and how it would be so nice if patients had...

ReTell Pharmacy

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... as well as the end of our sanity. This week on the show we cover so much like impersonating your pts, those who are getting a vaccine and only roll their sleeve up to their elbow, and covid boosters officially being approved for all adults (hence the end-of-our-sanity comment). We also talk a creeper patient of the week at my pharmacy, several of yours (which never disappoint) and end with me venting that I'm getting old. Such a fun time hanging with you guys, enjoy!  Keep your submissions coming as DMs, comments, etc through and (and don't...

And we're back! So so great to hang with you all again after missing last week. Because it's been a minute, we have so much to cover this week: why do covid-positive patients come TO THE PHARMACY?? I also vent about a pediatric vaccine nightmare-level situation and we talk some BIG covid news: 2 new medications on the horizon to treat this stupid virus aaaand potential boosters for ALL adults coming soon. Like, really soon. We end with chatting about the cool relationships you can have over the phone with fellow pharmacists/techs down the street and also discuss what YOU are thankful for this...

More Episodes

Alright, so I *may* have been a little triggered this week. Maybe it's just the season/year we're in and all that we're being asked to do. Either way, I wasn't the most positive on this one and, you know what, that's okay. This week I rant about so many things including a new ridiculous OTC product, being the immunocompromised police (if a pt can get a 3rd dose or not) and two dr's with a god complex. We do get a little positive though: It's Fall! and I have a tech that can immunize! All in all, a really fun one you guys... enjoy.

Connect with the show (me) through Facebook and Twitter and let me know what YOU want to talk about.
