The Pharmacists Are In

Meet Our Professional Staff

Welcome to this introduction to some of our professional staff, our Pharmacists.  Our professional staff are supported by technical and support staff – technicians, pharmacist assistants, an administrative person, and accounting persons.    Here is a short introduction to the Pharmacists on our staff and encourage you to bring your prescriptions to these professionals, who will help you to gain the most benefit from the drug regimen no matter how simple or how complex the therapy.  Some of these discussions will require that you book an appointment with the pharmacist.  This allows the pharmacist to spend an appropriate amount of time based on the nature of the drug therapy, the complexity of your health history and the goals of the drug regimen.   Before you do, here is an introduction to our Pharmacists.
