What is the difference between pharmacists who dispense medicine at a local pharmacy versus MedCare Pharmacists?

Pharmacists at a local pharmacy focus solely on dispensing medicine and do not have access to your medical records or labs. They also do not have the time to comprehensively review all of the medications you are taking. Our MedCare Pharmacists do not dispense medications and focus on all the medications you are taking and have valuable medicine insight that will aid in ensuring that your current medication regimen is best for you.


I am not in the Los Angeles, California area, can I still benefit from MedCare pharmacy consultants?

Yes, of course, as long as you have a computer and a phone.  There are no in-person office visits required. Patients often feel rushed for time at a doctor’s office, or perhaps they are uncomfortable asking additional questions… Our MedCare Pharmacists take their time to learn about your health, this way, we can provide you with in-depth and valuable information regarding medicine interactions.
