It was a delight to work with them and I will contract with them again in the future.
We have been extremely satisfied with the assistance Turnkey Pharmacy Solutions has provided to us as our 340B program has expanded. We have worked with Rich and Rob and find them to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and personable. Their mission was to identify and minimize any potential risk areas within our 340B program.

The information and resources that were provided through the audit process with Turnkey have been invaluable. We will definitely continue to work with them in the future to ensure our program compliance.
