Prescription FAQs

 Norton PharmacyQ.  Have you been in business very long?

A.  Ritzman has been in business since 1950 when Forrest Ritzman opened the first pharmacy in downtown Wadsworth called Wadsworth Pharmacy. Ritzman Pharmacy has continued to grow based on Forrest's foundation for customer service. He believed that you should "know your customers and serve them well." Since then, Ritzman Pharmacy has grown to 25 locations; including 11 pharmacies located within Buehler's Fresh Food Markets. Even with growth, our focus remains the same: customer service beyond the commonplace that makes you feel right at home when visiting us.

Q.  I am currently not a Ritzman Pharmacy customer and get my prescriptions filled elsewhere. Do I have to have my doctor write all new prescriptions in order to switch to your pharmacy?

A.  No! We can transfer your prescriptions for you. Just bring all your current prescription bottles into your local Ritzman Pharmacy, along with your insurance card, and we take it from there. Or, call us with the prescription numbers located on your bottle, the phone number of the pharmacy you are currently using, and your insurance information.

Q.  What insurances do you accept?

A. Ritzman Pharmacy accepts most insurances, even if we are not listed in your book or in your on-line listing! Bring your card in or give us a call and we can verify your coverage.

Q. What about my co-pays, will they be different at Ritzman?

A. In most cases your co-pays should not change.  A Ritzman associate should be able to assist you with this, information.

Q. Do you have a prescription drug savings program?

A. Yes! Please call or visit your local Ritzman Pharmacy for details. 

Q. I have always thought that grocery store pharmacies only have a limited number of medications. Is this true?

A. No, many people believe that grocery pharmacies only have a limited number of products but that is not true. All of the Ritzman pharmacies located within Buehler's Fresh Food Markets are fully stocked and able to meet all your medication needs.
