January 12 marked National Pharmacist Day, and we wanted to take a moment to highlight the changing role of pharmacists and how we can help you in your daily lives.
Pharmacists are often thought of as just individuals dispensing your medication, but, in modern times and particularly at Gatti Pharmacy, we can actually be an integrated part of your health care suppliers. We make it a point to not just distribute your prescriptions but also to educate you on proper usage, side affects and more so that you can be informed about what you are taking and how it affects your body. As our patient, your safety is of utmost importance, and we take your concerns seriously.
We talk and work with your doctors on your prescriptions as well as doing what we can to help with your insurance issues.
Many people frequently do not realize that what we do goes beyond filing your prescriptions; we provide important health care services through a variety of programs, many at no cost. For instance, we take the time to sit down with you and your loved ones to go over topics like medication management or a daily aspirin evaluation screening. We even do fittings for standard and nursing bras. We consider it part of our job to ensure the effectiveness of your medications, health.and overall care.
Please never hesitate to speak with us in more depth about our varying programs or questions or concerns regarding different aspects of your health. We are always here for you.
