As I am with mine. The pharmacy has a page is what I mean.

My pharmacist always asked about my favorite football team. He saw the logo on my wallet once and we talk football each and every time I am there.
While waiting I noticed he had a rapport with all his customers. He knew something about each one and talked to them in that regard.
It seems he used a sales approach i used when i was in sales.
"get to know your customer". Working very well for my pharmacist.
BTW. I can walk in off the street with a new written prescription, hand it to them and be on my way in less than 15 minutes. I say 15 minutes as that is the longest I have ever had to wait.

I pass a Walgreens and a CVS on my way to that store but it is well worth it! They worked with my husband on getting his prescriptions aligned so he wouldn't have to go in every week to refill one. They gave my son enough of his meds to make it through to his next doctor visit (one week away) where he could get a new script. They know me when I walk through the door and have my drugs ready at the counter when I get to register. Can't beat that kind of service.
Agree with you on all points.
Especially the chance of mistakes when an employee is over worked and under paid.
In these days, it could be a pharmacy tech filling your rx. I would hope the person filling my rx was not so tired they could make a mistake.
Even without exhaustion, mistakes can be made.
