Welcome to GetPharmacyAdvice.com
This blog is run by two pharmacists – me, Nova Simpson, and my best friend in the whole world, Cate Sibley.
Luckily for you, Cate and I work in both the retail and home infusion pharmacy settings. That means that we know all the aggravating, frustrating, and mind-boggling questions that are on your mind, and we created this blog to answer those questions.
Pharmacists are the most accessible healthcare workers available to you, but due to the challenging and fast-pased nature of most pharmacies, your questions as a patient can go neglected or unanswered. We care about you and we want to help you. We hope now that you know about GetPharmacyAdvice.com, you will use our blog to your advantage and visit us as often as you can.
No matter how you currently feel about your pharmacy, please now consider us your personal pharmacists.
As far as we know, GetPharmacyAdvice.com is the only blog of its kind.
I am sure everyone has experienced a “counseling” session at a busy retail pharmacy – The pharmacist tries to explain everything the patient wants/needs to know in 30-60 seconds, while the phone is ringing off the hook, technicians are asking questions and three other pharmacy guests are standing around listening.
You may even have questions that you do not want to ask due to their sensitive or embarrassing nature.
We ask for any kind of feedback. You can write us about health and drug questions, about the site, about us or even about the furbabies, Tater (like Tater Tot) and Toshi.
You can trust that you will get accurate, legitimate information because we are real pharmacists.
(This is Tater and the beast in the upper-right hand corner is Toshi)
