Domain Name Information
The domain name database contains information about most website addresses and it tells us that this site name was registered in 2014.
We are also given some information about the ownership of the website in the database. It tells us that the owner is listed as Discount Drug Mart based in Ohio, US. It is good to find that the owner of this business hasn’t decided to hide their information with the use of a privacy service, something which is all too common for unreliable pharmacy sites.
The website platform of this pharmacy has seen better days. It looks very dated and can’t have been updated since it was first created. Accordingly, the way that you use the site is very old fashioned as well. If you want to order from the pharmacy you will need to print out forms and fill them out before mailing them into the pharmacy. This is far from convenient for many people and will likely be putting off many potential customers.
The pharmacy does provide contact information for an address in Avon Lake, Ohio.
When checking this address we find that it is over the road from a Discount Drug Mart store and this name was found in the domain name records. Gentry seems to be a subsidiary of this company. Discount Drug Mart, Inc. is an Ohio chain of drugstores which were founded in 1969.
The store provides seals for a few regulatory associations. They have seals for VIPPS from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, URAC, ACHC and the .pharmacy program.
When we check with the NABP we do find that this pharmacy is regulated by the VIPPS program as they claim.
Checking with the other regulatory associations also shows that they are regulated as they claim. This all goes to show that this business should be operating in a safe way using standards which keep their customer’s details confidential.
A visit to the LegitScript site provides their opinion of this pharmacy. They have taken a look at the business and they consider them to be a legit drugstore operating in accordance with the appropriate laws.
This pharmacy lists a fairly narrow range of medicine which is limited to a small number of medical conditions. These conditions include:
- Crohn’s disease
The drugs offered by the site are mostly brand name pills.
You will need to provide a valid prescription when you want to order from this pharmacy. Unfortunately, much like the rest of the site, they don’t make it easy to place an order with them. For a new prescription, you will need to give them a call with your details and they will contact your doctor for a prescription.
If you already have a prescription to hand, you will have to print out a form and send it off complete with the prescription. Then wait and see for when you meds will arrive.
Payment and Shipping
This website isn’t secured in the way you would expect for professional pharmacy business. It could be a risk to enter your payment information if the checkout pages aren’t secured with a valid SSL certificate. You can pay for your medication from this store using:
- Money orders
- American Express
They only ship to within Ohio and delivery is free.
This pharmacy displays a few customer testimonials on their site to add some social proof to the store. These GentryHealthServices.com reviews are, as you would expect, very positive towards the business.
It isn’t ideal to judge the reliability of a pharmacy, based solely on the testimonials on their own pages. They aren’t an unbiased place to read customer comments because they are unlikely to post anything negative.
It is far better to check comments on an independent site. We do find some testimonials on the pharmacy’s Google business listing. These seem genuine and are very positive though there aren’t very many of them.
While this pharmacy does have the correct regulatory approvals and some good customer feedback. The way that the site operates is old fashioned and inconvenient for many people.
We feel that a rating of 3 stars out of five is suitable for this drugstore.
