Patient Testimonials

Medicare Part D patients with PharmD students

"The vision of this person who came up with this idea, it is meeting such a need. Because seniors often feel lonely and lost and there aren't many services [for us]. And when there is someone who can counsel us, they seem to have a limited amount of time and energy and perspective. Whereas here, you get a lot of individual attention from young people who have a lot of energy and know-how and they have a mentor who can help them with anything that they don't know... This is actually meeting a need on both sides. It is making the pharmacist more capable of seeing the full humanity of the people they are serving and allowing the people they are serving to feel their humanity and to feel seen."

"I was very impressed with the professional and courteous help given to me by pharmacy interns Olivia Page and Henry Kim. They reviewed all my medications and helped me to secure a prescriptions drug (Zetia) at a much more affordable cost. The information booklet was very understandable and a great help. I was proud to be a UOP alumna of the fine and caring work done by the school of pharmacy."

"Excellent service UOP pharmacy students provide! Quite impressive. They did a thorough analysis of my mom's health conditions and medications. We also had a PA student at our table, and together they provided some helpful suggestions. Also received excellent and helpful advice by the bone mineral density screening students. Thank you!"

"All of the students that helped us were wonderful, very thoughtful and patient. The young lady that helped with us Medicare drug benefit was great. She took a lot of time educating and explaining things, and we got a new drug plan that will save us a bunch of money. Thank you for having this event, we enjoyed ourselves very much."

"Michelle Chinn and David Carranza were the two who helped me. They were polite, knowledgeable, and very helpful. They went over all my medications and guided be to a better Part D plan."

"I realized as I was gathering papers together to come to this, that it is such a blessing to have something like this where someone can help us figure out how to get through the maze. Because there is an aspect of Medicare that has a maze feeling to it and there is some anxiety that one might get lost in it. So, to have people who have experience knowing how to trace it through and the fact there is often more than one person there helping ... I was so relieved."
