Our Department of Pharmacy Services handles all prescription and supplement needs on-site at our clinic.
Our retail pharmacy offers prescription medications and supplements, based on the recommendations of your oncologist, naturopathic physician and/or pain management clinician.
The retail pharmacy staff, along with our naturopathic physicians, have developed guidelines for reviewing and dispensing all prescription and supplement products. We look for drug-drug interactions and drug-herb interactions and make sure that every supplement prescribed is safe and won’t interfere with a patient’s treatment regimen.
A separate pharmacy near/in our Infusion Center mixes chemotherapeutic drugs and other intravenous medications. Chemotherapy treatment is prepared based on individualized dose requirements for each patient. Prior to mixing your chemotherapy, our pharmacists will review your lab results to make sure you can tolerate the prescribed dose and that it's the most appropriate drug for your particular health state.
Using this information, our pharmacists will work with your oncologist to determine the best chemotherapy schedule and delivery method. They also check for any drug interactions and recommend additional medications to help to prevent or reduce chemotherapy- and medication-related side effects.
Throughout your care, you will likely have questions about your medications and any anticancer drugs you are receiving, such as chemotherapy. The pharmacy team will interact regularly with your doctor, and with you and your family members to help answer your questions and educate you on the safe use of medications.
