"As a pharmacist, one of my joys is to be able to take care of patients right from childhood and develop lifelong relationships with families. It has been so rewarding for me to develop close relationships with my patients while helping them with their day-to-day medication needs. I strive to offer a pharmacy where kindness and fast, friendly customer service is paramount"
