How many years has your pharmacy been in business?
Medical Associates Pharmacy has been in business for over 55 years.
Clinic Pharmacy has been in business for over 30 years. I have worked at the pharmacy for 36 years (since high school!) and have been the owner of both pharmacies for the last 7 years.
What has been the most significant change within your pharmacy over the past five years and how has it helped you serve your patients better?
The most significant change within my pharmacy is from joining the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network (CPESN) and making a commitment to add clinical services in our pharmacy. It has re-ignited my passion for pharmacy and grown our business through new revenue opportunities.
What is your favorite thing about being a pharmacist?
I enjoy precepting pharmacy students, spending time with my patients and helping them understand how, when and why they should take their medications.
What makes your pharmacy unique?
Independent pharmacy is unique for many reasons: we are always available to our patients; we always look for ways to improve our patient’s health; and we always focus on saving our patients’ money. To put it simply, we ALWAYS care.
What do you think your patients love most about your pharmacy?
We know our patients by name and they love our personalized service. We offer them services tailored to their needs, such as delivery, drive thru, bubble packaging, medication synchronization and long-term care.
What are your favorite ways to get involved with your community?
I serve on several boards in our community, including the Hospital Foundation, Community Schools Foundation and the Public Health Advisory Board. We also sponsor many local events, such as at our local library and county hospital.
What does Locally Loved mean to you?
Locally loved is loyalty and commitment to the community you serve.
