|As I came from India, pharmacy presented itself to be a career path with the greatest opportunity for success. As an Aryurvedic Physician (Doctor of Herbal Medicine) in India I had already been familiar with the medical field. Coming to America in 1987, a career in Pharmacy offered me the opportunity to focus on drugs to cure diseases similar to the way I used herbs to cure diseases in India.
In 1987 I graduated with a B.A.M.S from G.S.K.B Ayurveda College in India. Moving to America, in 1991, I graduated from St. Johns University in New York obtaining my RPh. I moved to Florida in 1992, where I began working at Eckerd Drugs for 9 years. I later shifted employers to Publix Pharmacy for 6 years where I then after opened my own independent pharmacy. In 2006 I acquired my compounding certification allowing me to coagulate and transform medications to fit the needs of my patients. As an independent pharmacy owner for the past 5 years, I've grown accustomed to getting to know my patients on a personal level and ascertaining the experience as a qualified pharmacist. I've worked closely with a variety of nursing homes as well as the local community of patients who I can serve to the best of my ability.
