What is a compounding pharmacy? What makes us different from other pharmacies? These are the questions we hear from our patients all the time. Compounding pharmacies create unique prescription medications to meet the individual needs of each patient. This is done under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist and your doctor. Some of these unique needs include:
• Specific strengths of prescriptions that are not commercially available
• Adding flavoring to medications for a more pleasant taste
• A change in dosage form, to a liquid or cream
• Removing preservatives, dyes, or other unwanted ingredients that a patient may not tolerate
What makes Prescott Compounding Pharmacy different from other compounding pharmacies is how we meet these needs. We will achieve this by compounding with experience, extensive training, and modern operational facilities. We uphold the strictest standards set by the FDA, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB). Prescott Compounding Pharmacy has been serving the region for many years and is going through an exciting transition with new management. I’d like to introduce two of your new pharmacists.
My name is Jimmy, along with my wife Madison, we will be your new compounding pharmacists. A little about us: We moved here from Phoenix with our newborn, Tegan, and lab Ty earlier this year. We both graduated from the University of Hawaii, I graduated in 2014, and Madison in 2015. I have been the pharmacist in charge at an independent pharmacy and director of pharmacy at a behavioral hospital prior to this role. Madison has been a compounding pharmacist at Potters House Apothecary in Phoenix for the past five years.
Along with our other ownership partners, our goal is to provide the best health care to the area. We also hope to contribute as members of the community we now call home. We look forward to serving you for the years to come. Don’t hesitate to stop in an see us. We’d love to get to know you better.
