How many years has your pharmacy been in business?
Spence’s Medical Center Pharmacy has been in business 31 years.
What is your favorite thing about being a pharmacist?
I love making a difference in people’s lives and health. There is nothing more gratifying than patients admitting that the counseling you just gave them is going to make a difference.
What makes your pharmacy unique?
We are unique in our community because we are the only independent pharmacy. We do many things to differentiate ourselves from the chain pharmacies, including acknowledging our customers, calling them by name, knowing their medications, counseling them extensively, getting involved in the community, and living locally.
What do you think your patients love most about your pharmacy?
Our patients know that we love and care about them as individuals and that their health is important to us. We value them and their time.
What excites you most about the future of independent pharmacy?
We have been involved in cutting-edge pharmacy from day one. I was the first certified immunizing pharmacist in the county. Our pharmacy’s small size allows us to be nimble and quick to adapt updates to our business model more than the big guys. We love change. It is easier for us to evolve and adjust.
What does Locally Loved mean to you?
Locally Loved means that the love is mutual: we love all of our patients, and they love us back.
