Pharmacist Provider Services
If you're juggling multiple medications for a chronic disease, consider a visit with one of our pharmacist providers to help you manage and monitor your medications.
Having a pharmacist fully integrated as a member of the primary care team means that you'll have the opportunity to benefit from the pharmacist's experience and specialized medication knowledge.
Studies have shown that when a pharmacist is included in a health care team, your care improves due to fewer repeat emergency department admissions and improved medication prescribing.
If you have a chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or congestive heart failure, the pharmacist can monitor your medication results, adjust dosages and prevent dangerous drug interactions. This may help you reduce your health care costs.
Our pharmacists are board certified or board eligible in pharmacy specialties with years of college and post-collegiate training as a registered pharmacist (RPh) or Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD).
