If you’ve shopped at more than one pharmacy recently, you may have decided that all the big chains are not necessarily created equal.

A recent report from J.D. Power takes a look at how customers feel about some of the most popular pharmacies in the United States. The 2021 U.S. Pharmacy Study shows that overall satisfaction and customer spending increase with the use of health and wellness services like vaccinations and routine screenings.

According to the study, customers also give high marks to pharmacies that integrate their services into their mobile apps.

What Are the Top-Ranked Pharmacies?

“While we have been seeing consumer satisfaction with retail health services grow steadily, this year marks a significant turning point in which most customers are now using these services,” James Beem, J.D. Power’s managing director of healthcare intelligence, says in a news release. “The fact that this happened during a pandemic should send a clear signal that retail pharmacies are transforming health and wellness services in America.”

The report is based on responses from more than 12,000 pharmacy customers who filled a prescription at a brick-and-mortar or mail-order pharmacy between June 2020 and May 2021.
