1. The Pharmacy must be operated by the LINCENSED PHARMACIST and not any other person, whether it be a pharmacist or a pharmacy assistant. Each pharmacy has been licensed by the state to operate by a single graduate pharmacist, whose name is written on the pharmacy's inscription. The licensed pharmacist has in LABEL's blouse the name of his name, which means "PHARMACIST". Pharmacy assistants have in their blouse a badge that says "PHARMACEUTICAL AID", but most of the time DO NOT FORONE LABEL. If the pharmacist has completed more studies and has received more degrees as a PhD, then his badge writes "DOCTOR IN PHARMACY SCHOOL OF UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS” that have "pharmacy assistants" or are operated by individuals other than THE RISK OF PHARMACEUTICALS, whose name is written in THE PHARMACEUTICAL SIGNATURE. We always prefer the pharmacist, who has done more studies and is «DOCTOR IN PHARMACY SCHOOL OF UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS» or other University. So we look at the pharmacy's inscription to see who is the licensed pharmacist and then watch out if the person who serves us has in his blouse a badge to write the name, which we read on the inscription of the pharmacy. We also look at whether the blouse sign says "PHARMACIST" and if the pharmacist has more university degrees such as being a "DOCTOR IN PHARMACY SCHOOL OF UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS ", etc. If it is to be served by a pharmacist who is not the licensor, Or to be served by a pharmacy assistant, then we leave without negotiating with our non-competent employees our health. The most precious good of a man is his health. That's why when we get sick we go to the best doctor and the best pharmacist. At the pharmacist we trust our health. Unfortunately, many people make the mistake and consider the best pharmacy to have many cosmetics, more posters, more beautiful or sexy vendors - pharmacy assistants, what a sophisticated & scissor pharmacist, or what inexpensive cosmetics (which to be cheaper , May be defective-problem batches of products or 'monkey' products, etc.). 2. We do not get carried away by economic offers of products at e-shops or in pharmacies, since discounts of more than 3% (per cent) are likely to conceal defective - problem batches of branded products or 'monkey' products. A proverb says "The cheap meat, the dogs eat it". We prefer the products that are set up by the PHRASE MANAGER (see above paragraph 1) and which do not deviate more than 3% from the price of the product in our neighboring pharmacy. So always prefer your closest neighborhood pharmacy, despite the far-off impersonal pharmacy with offers. Pharmacies are part of primary care, so European and therefore Greek legislation has been uniformly dispersed throughout Greece and is not allowed to open an unregulated number of pharmacies in every city, village, etc. Thus, the neighboring A non-pharmacy pharmacy, that is not a part of a pharmacy chain, and that has not been re-acquired (partly or totally) by another large business, is the best pharmacy for your purchases. This is because the responsible licensed pharmacist (look above the first paragraph) was, is and will always be part of the neighborhood you belong to and you see every day, and so you will never be able to risk selling you a defective product Or monkey product, as opposed to an impersonal central pharmacy that does not personally know its customers, and which, due to its higher operating costs, may risk everything to increase its revenue. That is, we prefer the pharmacies INDIVIDUAL ENTERPRISES and not the pharmacies COMPANIES (IKE, LTD, SA, OE, EE). 
2. Do not ever think of a pharmacy where the pharmacist or pharmacy assistant will willingly want to replace the doctor, diagnose and recommend treatment and want to sell you easily medicines. Even worse is the pharmacy where you can easily sell medicines without a prescription, just because you asked for it with self-diagnosis you did. The drug, as it is known, is not a consumer product, such as footwear or soft drinks. Medicines are life saving for patients in need, and poisons for people who take them without needing them. Whether someone needs a medication is considered by the treating physician and is given by the pharmacist with his hands on prescription. It is not given by any trader, nor is he bought by the patient on his own initiative and at his discretion. The duration of the treatment is determined by the treating physician, so in all medical prescriptions the required amount of medication is prescribed, and the patient is directed to the pharmacist to perform the prescription within a reasonable time (usually within a few hours of prescribing) . The medical prescriptions are all written and bear the stamp of the treating physician as well as the prescription date, and indicate the patient's name and AMKA. The pharmacist controls the relevance of the diagnosis and prescription medications, and if he finds something "crooked" he or she communicates with the doctor to settle the matter. The pharmacist also gives advice to the patient about how to take medication, and information on any interactions with other medicines already taken by the patient and about any side effects that may occur. In short, the pharmacist completes the work of the doctor and does not substitute him. FOR THAT: a) we have to choose pharmacies owned and run by pharmacists with PhD studies (that is, they are DOCTOR IN PHARMACY SCHOOL OF UNIVERSITY OF ATHENS or other universities). B) We also avoid pharmacies where a pharmacy assistant is in charge of the pharmacy manager. The pharmacy assistant has neither the right, nor the knowledge to make prescriptions, nor is it entitled to give an opinion on pharmaceutical and parapharmaceutical products (cosmetics, nutritional supplements, vitamins, etc.). The competence and knowledge of the assistant of a pharmacy is limited to the execution of the orders of the licensed pharmacist, IN PRESENCE of the licensed PHARMACIST, as well as the maintenance of the pharmacy's cleanliness. DISPOSAL OF THE MEDICINAL PRODUCT, THE MEDICINAL AID IS PROHIBITED TO OPERATE THE MEDICINAL PRODUCT. Unfortunately, many patients are often the victims of such unacceptable situations where the licensed pharmacist is missing and replacing a pharmacy assistant, which represents the pharmacist endangering the health of the naive patients.
