How many years has Gibson’s Pharmacy been in business?
Gibson’s Pharmacy has been in business for 37 years.
What has been the most significant change within your pharmacy over the past five years?
Our focus has been on expanding our adherence services. We now offer full synchronization services and multi-dose packaging. Approximately 50% of our prescription volume is now filled through one of our adherence programs.
What is your favorite part of owning an independent pharmacy?
My favorite part of owning an independent pharmacy is the flexibility to structure our practice any way we wish. If our patients ask for certain services or we feel some services aren’t useful, we can alter them as we see fit.
What role does your pharmacy play in your local community?
We’re extremely active in our community. We support numerous local charities and organizations and are also active in our schools as mentors and advisors.
What makes you unique, sets you apart from your competition?
Our programs are centered around making our patients’ pharmacy experience as convenient and educational as possible. Our synchronization and multi-dose program allow us to reduce trips to the pharmacy, improve adherence rates and streamline the way we communicate.
What unique health needs do you have in your community?
We serve a large Spanish-speaking population. While communication can often be challenging, we’re committed to providing the resources necessary to educate our non-English-speaking patients.
What does Locally Loved mean to you?
We’re not just caring for our customers. Our practice is focused on improving the overall health of our community. The Dodge City area has embraced our approach and we’re so thankful for their support.
