Domain Name Information
Pharmacies that have been online for longer are more likely to be legit, and this pharmacy has certainly been online for a long time. Their address has been registered since 1998 and does not expire for another 2 years, increasing the chances that they are safe for customers to use.
There is not any information in the database, however, that indicates who owns this drugstore. Instead, they’ve used the privacy service to keep this information out of the records. While this isn’t completely perfect, it might not be intentional and could be something that has been included when they registered the domain.
The pharmacy does give a contact address on their website, and when we check, we can see that this is a real business location. This is reassuring and means there is a greater chance that the store is going to be reliable to safe for their online customers.
The pharmacy also gives details of the people that work in the pharmacy. They give the names, photographs, and a short bio about the main people who work in the business. This appears to be genuine and gives more confidence in the pharmacy.
As this pharmacy tells us that they are located in Wisconsin, they should be regulated by the Wisconsin Board of Pharmacy. Checking in their database, we do discover that this drugstore has the accreditation they should.
This is good and means that the pharmacy should be serving their customers better, and selling medicine that is legit.
However, we did find one problem with the pharmacy. They display a Better Business Bureau accredited logo on their website, though this logo doesn’t direct you to their website. Our checks on their BBB profile show that they are not accredited.
This might be some sort of mistake, but whatever the reason it doesn’t look good.
The pharmacy offers your normal prescription medical services along with other options, including:
■ Long-term care
■ Compression socks
■ Men’s health pills
Their compounding medicines allow drugs to be specifically tailored to individual patient requirements. While drug formulas work for most people most of the time, they don’t work for everybody. Compounding is a way to get around these problems and better treat the customer.
Payment and Shipping
The pharmacy only offers one method of payment on their website, and that is PayPal. For some products, you might not be able to purchase them online, instead, requiring a phone call to the drugstore.
The pharmacy says that they ship orders the next business day using first-class mail from the USPS. Tracking might also be available through the USPS.
There may be a charge for delivery from this pharmacy unless you join their Medicine On Time service. This service gives you free delivery if you live in the area of Wisconsin where the pharmacy operates.
There are some customer comments found on the Google business page. That page includes 54 LakeviewPharmacy.com reviews that are mostly good. Customers comment about their great service and how they feel well treated by the pharmacy.
These great comments from their customers seem to suggest that the drugstore is reliable and doing the best for their customers. These are the sort of comments we would expect from a legit pharmacy, and it shows that they are probably a safe bet, at least if you live in the area.
Though most of the comments are very positive for the store, a few customers did have problems. One customer reported that the incorrect meds were dispensed, something that could be a very serious problem if it hadn’t been spotted by the customer.
Despite this, we still believe that the pharmacy is reliable, and it is inevitable that things do occasionally go wrong even with the best drugstores.
Most of the things this pharmacy does are good and should protect their customers. We have them a trust rating of 70% overall because they are a legitimate business, have the correct regulatory approval, and seem to be making customers happy.
There are some negatives with this drugstore though, like some limited purchasing opportunities on their website and their lack of BBB accreditation that they claim.
