Good for the Ladue Pharmacy crew. They are very smart and the most helpful folks you will ever meet. My wife takes a very expensive monthly prescription and every month it is a battle with the insurance company. They always win for us. They know your name when you come in. The stuff is the same price as the chains and they deliver. It is a local treasure.
