Richie Dueñas, PharmD, COP 2009

richie

Richie is passionate about "Community Pharmacy" and what that term really means. We will soon live in a world where everything will be automated, including your prescriptions. The Pharmacist must transition to providing expert pharmaceutical care to patients and informing them what it means to receive this kind of care. Mercury Pharmacy is that place. We are innovative, agile, informative and most importantly we sincerely care. We do not pay lip-service to concerns, we advocate for the patient.

As a pharmacist who had a non-traditional path to his profession, Richie is committed to providing opportunities to those who are looking for a career in independent pharmacy. We are here to serve and inform. It's not customer service, it's Patient-Centered Care.
