As a health care provider, my goal is to keep everybody healthy and happy. I feel privileged when I help a patient overcome a sickness with my recommendation. I feel proud when I help a patient stay adherent on his/her diabetes medications by recommending some tools to remind them take their medications daily. I feel humbled when I make critical clinical interventions to prevent life threatening drug interactions or adverse drug/food events, protect my patients who then, thank me and treat me as if I am their life saver!
Today pharmacists are placed uniquely amidst the vast, spread out healthcare sector. For a typical patient, pharmacist offers the solutions to not only help with their prescriptions, but also with access in terms of affordability, connecting them with prescribers, enabling them the access to resources from manufacturers, counseling them for side effects, drug/ food interactions, coaching them on adherence, etc., etc. Not to forget the contributions from pharmacy technicians for their enormous hard work and persistence to take care of their patients.
The mission of this website is to spread awareness and education through the content of this website, my blogs and other interactions from the followers of my website.
