When I got home, I called my doctor's office to explain what happened.
Hall's doctor attempted to persuade the pharmacist to fill the prescription but was also rebuffed.
"He did not give me a clear reason for the refusal", Hall wrote, "embarrassed and distressed, I almost started crying in the middle of the store", she continued.
Hilde Hall, who lives in Fountain Hills, Arizona, was "elated" to fill her first hormone therapy prescription after leaving her doctor's office in April, she wrote in a blog post posted Thursday on the ACLU's website.
Hall then transferred all of her prescriptions to that Walgreens "so that I never again have to see the pharmacist who discriminated against me", she wrote.
'He just kept asking, loudly and in front of other CVS staff and customers, why I was given the prescriptions, ' Hall wrote in her ACLU blog.
Hall says when she arrived at the store, the pharmacist refused to fill her prescription.
Hall had received three prescriptions April 24 from her doctor, who specializes in hormone therapy, she said. I felt like the pharmacist was trying to out me as transgender in front of strangers.
She said she "froze" and tried to hold back her tears.

This poll has created a do-or-die situation for the incumbent party, which is now being helmed by Nawaz Sharif's brother, Shehbaz. In 2013, Mr Gandapur's brother, Israrullah, who was then the provincial law minister, was killed in a suicide attack on his home.

Pop culture junkie. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever".
CVS apologized to Hall for the delay, saying in its statement that no one had previously contacted her due to "an unintentional oversight".
The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy is investigating after Nicole Arteaga described in a viral Facebook post how she was publicly humiliated when attempting to fill the prescription to end her pregnancy - a pregnancy she wanted, but needed to terminate because she would ultimately miscarry. In a June statement, Walgreens said pharmacists are allowed to not fill a prescription based on moral objections but they must give it to another pharmacist to fill.
CVS, however, fired its employee and apologized to Hall on Friday.
"CVS Health extends its honest apologies to Ms. Hall for her experience at our pharmacy in Fountain Hills, Arizona last spring", the statement reads.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona encouraged Hall to speak out to create change on behalf of transgender people, said Steve Kilar, ACLU of Arizona spokesman. "But many other transgender people are not as fortunate as I am".
"Hilde hopes that CVS will make its nondiscrimination policies public, so that transgender and non-binary customers have some assurance the corporation will take appropriate action if similar discrimination occurs in the future", Kilar said.
