Medications play a vital role in keeping you healthy and maintaining your quality of life. However, when you have multiple physicians prescribing you multiple medications, the chance of drug interactions and adverse drug events occurring multiplies exponentially. In fact, adverse drug events now account for more than 1/3 of annual hospital admissions for those 65 years and older.
As your personal pharmacist, I want you to take less prescription and over-the-counter medications. I am going to transform your traditional healthcare experience with a comprehensive medication review. Your review will identify and eliminate more than 10 types of medication-related problems from your current regimen, and prevent major adverse drug events from occurring.
If you have never heard of a Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (CGP), you are not alone. Less than 1% of all pharmacists are CGPs. In fact, you might call us Healthcare’s Best Kept Secret. Click below to discover how I can help you and your family.
