The women in the Pharmacy is so ignorant, she may not understand full English but she is so rude there really is no need for it. It doesnt hurt to smile, what a miserable cow!
She was more interested in shouting at somebody on her mobile phone rather than serving the four customers that were waiting.
Whilst on holiday in Kalamki in July my wife had to go to the Pharmacy to get some medication for Hay Fever. The woman who works behind the counter must be the most sour, unco-operative person on the Island. The price she charged us for a packet of tablets was 15 euros. At those prices she should be laughing her head off and not be so miserable. Mind you the tablets did the trick.
WHILST OUT IN KALAMAKI AT THE END OF JUNE HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY FOOT SWELLING UP AFTER MOSSIES HAD A FIELD DAY ON MY ANKLES,I FOUND THE DOCTOR TO BE VERY THOROUGH AND TAKING HIS TIME WITH EVERYTHING,DID NOT PALM ME OFF AT ALL.ADVISED ME TO TAKE THE MEDICATION HE PRESCRIBED AND RUB IN THE CREAM HE ALSO GAVE ME.I WOULD SAY THAT I THINK THE SERVICE THIS DOCTOR GAVE ME WAS EXCELLENT AND I DON'T THINK I WOULD HAVE GOT THAT BACK HOME.
I had to see the the doctor for a ear problem the doctor was very good he gave me tablets and ear drops .The next day it was getting worse so i went back the time 4.15 pm he said you need to see a ear nose and throat consultant so he phoned one up he said right your booked when i asked.510 in zante town he said wot a rush but was soughted would you get that in the uk i dont think so .
Needed to go to pharmacy whilst out in August after hubby developed a abcess on his tooth!!! The lady was very helpful and promptly dispensed me with a course of Amoxcil...an antibiotic!! They cost 6 euros....which is less than the prescription charge at home!!!! Told me tell hubby to dissolve them in water...as this was easier on his stomach!?! Yuk....but he did do it! Took one tablet and the abcess promptly burst!!! Dont think it was the medication....but he continued to take them and suffered no more ill effects!!! All in all thought they were very helpful!!!
while i was out last year i was in a bit of pain, while at work i fainted, when i come around colleges had called the local doctor, dr Lapos. He told me to go to a scan centre and get checked out. After doing this i found i had a cyst on my right overy the size of two cooking apples. A month before this i had had a scan and nothing showed up, thanks to this doctor i am back in good health. this doctor gives you injections for everythin and it always works, even small things like itchy mozzy bites. this doctor is great and no matter what time of day it is he always comes out.
Went to the chemist in Kalamaki resort centre as I was getting attacked by the mosquitoes evry day and some bites were very red and lumpy! I asked for some thing to take away redness and swelling and she seemed like she didnt care. I showed her some of my bits on my back but she didnt even really look at them she went and go some bite and sting gel which was homeapathic by Nelsons which was 12 euros, which we thought was expensive and when my partner asked if it would help reduce swelling she just looked at us blankly and wasnt very helpful, we bought the gel and to be honest it was not very good, the bite cream at our hotel was much better and they told us you can buy it cheaper at a supermarket. She just seemed bored and they sell you the most expensive stuff to make money when sometimes you dont neccessarily need it.
got some kind of what i thought was an ear infection paid 10 euros for some drops that turned it from deafness to painfull. turned out as ear wax build up so the moral of my story is if it ain't hurting dont pay for something from a chemist who can't even be botherd to look into your ear before she gives you some expensive crap that just makes it worse. but in her defense i must say she had a lovely ass
for a mosquito bite you need an antihystamine cream, same as you would for nettle rash, so she wasnt really wrong. you praps needed something a little stronger. glad you got sorted in the end. we have used this pharmacy quite a bit and always were happy with the service
Very poor service, the female chemist that served me was rude (she's well known for this!) and her knowledge of basic mosquito treatments was dire - I had an allergic reaction to a bite and needed an injection yet was sold nettle rash cream! Eurosky car hire recommended the chemist in Laganas (opposite MacDonalds) and they were very helpful, referring me to the doctor!
My wife dislocated her ankle and broke her leg in two places while visiting kalimaki last year.With my six month old daughter and myself under great duress, we had to use both the pharmacy and the private doctor next door.We needed not to worry though both doctor and pharmacist were exellent Both spoke very good english and were exellent at their jobs.I would though advise everyone to check their insurance before leaving the U.K. Back to Kalimaki this September cannot wait to see everone at the Merelene.bye.
Spoke good English and seemed to know her stuff. Pricey though - 13 Euros for 1 tube of cream and 6 Euros for another.
very rude lady behind the counter served me, the prescription for my daughter was cheap though only 1 euro 60 cents!!
Seem to charge what they want, 15 euros for a tube of cream.
Make sure you take a small first aid pack wth you.
Unfortunatley I have always needed to visit the Pharmacy. Cold sores. Mosquito Bites. Stomach upsets ..... She is a young well educated lady and I didn't find the prices too high at all. She gives good advice too. You can buy antibiotics and other prescribtion drugs over the counter here for less than the price of a prescription in England. I hope that I don't need to go on my next trip to Kalamaki but I will be reassured that I can confidently know that she is there if I do!
Nice lady, knows her stuff, speaks good english. Pay double for the privilige! My daughter had a facial skin rash, paid 12.50 euros for some magic cream which cleared it up in a couple of days. Spotted the same stuff later in a supermarket for 7.50 euros. Rest my case.
This is the only Chemist in Kalamaki, but luckily enought wasnt too much of a walk from where we were staying, very helpful staff, but tablet for an upset stomach cost 20 Euro's, a bit Pricey!
LAST JULY I GOT A EAR INFECTION,WE WENT TO THIS CHEMIST AND FOUND IT VERY HELPFUL,THE LADY SPOKE VERY GOOD ENGLISH,WE GOT SOME EAR-DROPS,ALSO SOME DRYEAR DROPS,SOON GOT BETTER,COST AROUND £3,NOT BAD FOR TWO PRESCRIPTIONS,THE DROPS WERE MADE BY GLAXO.
Young girl behind the counter spoke very good english and was polite and was a great help in solving an eye complaint out.
This very pleasant young lady was an absolute gem. Nothing was too much trouble for her when my wife was unfortunate enough to break her ankle during the second week of our holiday. She managed to get my wife a pair of crutches to get about on and when my wife couldn't manage on them, she got on the phone and found someone willing to rent us a brand new wheelchair. She even personally returned my passport to the reception desk in our apartment block when I accidently left it in the pharmacy. She definitely played a part in saving our holiday.
needed some drops for my ears.the assistant had to answer phone just as i was handing over my money.she sat down,chatted for 2 minutes to whoever it was,and ignored me.she could have been on the phone longer,i walked out.3 other people were behind me in queue,if you do drop in take them some water and butties!!!
We stayed in Kalamaki in September last year and i got attacked by the mosquitos! we went to this chemist and the lady was very helpful, she spoke good English and gave me everything that i needed to take away the itching and pain!
