We now have more options for our pharmaceutical needs on the mountain. Nick Bryce, licensed pharmacist, is the owner of the newly opened White Mountain Pharmacy. Nick and his wife Rebecca opened their pharmacy in September 2017. The pharmacy is located at 4461 South White Mountain Road in Show Low. You can call at 928-537-8555. Their hours of business are Monday through Thursday, 9am till 6pm and Friday, 9am till 5pm. They will be closed on weekends, Saturday and Sunday and all major holidays.
They have a home delivery service for Show Low, Pinetop, Lakeside, Linden, and Heber Overgaard and it is free of charge. As I was speaking with Nick about their services pictures began to formulate in my mind of an old fashioned business of days gone by. A business of people who really do care about you and what will be best for you individually. Not just a new pharmacy but a family operated pharmacy; a family of people making sure our needs are met in timely fashion and tailor made for each of us individually.
They are a pharmacy specializing in compounding medications. It is a process where they mix the formula at the pharmacy. They are providing Hormone Replacement drugs specifically Bio-identical, pain management, dermatology treatments and veterinarian treatments as well. For your information Arizona State requires anything compounded must have a prescription.
The PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) in a recent article has this to say about what Compounding is: Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioners prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.
For those with allergies and an intolerance to fillers compounding might be the answer. Compounding can measure the strengths and dosages. Some may need flavors and ingredients excluded from medications due to allergies with pills and may need their medicine in liquid form. This is the special service a compounding pharmacist can provide for us.
So let’s drop in and visit and support this business that is making every effort to help us with our individual needs and customer service to boot.
