Our pharmacist is able to provide comprehensive medication therapy management through patient centered pharmaceutical care and can meet one-on-one with patients to review their medication regiment – to promote safe and appropriate use of their medications.

A consult with the pharmacist would be beneficial for:

  • Patients recently discharged from a hospital with changes to their medications.
  • Patients with chronic medical conditions (i.e. asthma, COPD, chronic pain, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc.).
  • Patients who are trying to meet target goals – for good control of their chronic conditions (i.e. blood pressure, blood sugars, pain control, etc.).
  • Patients who are on multiple medications (polypharmacy) where there is high risk of adverse effects and drug interactions.
  • Patients on high risk medications that require monitoring (Lithium, Methotrexate, Oral anticoagulants, Warfarin, etc.).
  • Patients who want to develop an action plan to educate and empower themselves about their medications.


A consult includes:

  • Talking about your medications – how and when they are best taken.
  • Discussing why you are taking specific medications.
  • Discussing the common side-effects and how to minimize them.
  • Identifying, and addressing, any drug related problems (duplication, unnecessary therapy, inappropriate dose or dosage forms, drug interactions, etc.).
  • It is important that you bring ALL the medications you are taking, including over-the-counter (OTCs), vitamins and supplements for this review.
  • The pharmacist is a vital resource for physicians, nurses and patients in regards to medication therapy.
