100 Years Strong

Our pharmacy is a Glen Iris and Malvern East institution, having been in its current location for nearly 100 years.

The longevity of our pharmacy is matched only by our pharmacists who have 110 years of pharmacy experience combined.

We continue the tradition of compounding and custom-made medication, once the role of every pharmacist, and now the role of few.

At the same time, we are passionate about our customers. You’ll feel that touch of love and enthusiasm in everything we do.

We look forward to welcoming you to our pharmacy family.

As a former pharmacy owner, David is enjoying his role as senior pharmacist, and it shows. Friendly, approachable, professional and personable, he’s just what the doctor (well pharmacy) ordered. David has a special interest in diabetes management and supplementary medicines, and can found on a weekend playing tennis or golf, or watching Aussie Rules.

Danica – Pharmacist

Danica is another one of our compounding pharmacists, having been trained by a prominent compounding pharmacy in Melbourne. When she’s not greeting our compounding customers over the telephone, you’ll find her mixing all manner of concoctions in the lab and consulting customers about their special needs. Lovely, confident and clever – she’s a joy to deal with.

Fiona has worked with us for 7 years, and has a heart made of gold. With her special interest in wound care, she tends to customers presenting to the pharmacy with cuts and wounds of all sorts, and has a great knowledge of complementary medicines in the form of Bioceutical products. The bright and friendly feel of our pharmacy owes much to her knowledge and attention to detail. That’s probably her lovely smile you’ll see when you first walk through the door.

Jen is our resident cosmetics consultant. Returning to us after having two beautiful young children, she is a master at our Art Deco make-up range (which, incidentally, is Germany’s number one brand!), and can be found applying make-up to our customers, ahead of their big night out. With an infectious laugh, and real smarts, being around Jen just makes your life better.

Harry

Harry is our resident Einstein, having scored 99.90 in his final year of school. Studying medicine at Melbourne University and working in world leading research labs hasn’t dented his love for our pharmacy, where he’ll still be found after many years on a Saturday. It won’t be long before customers start calling him “the Doc”. Or maybe we’ll start calling him that ourselves.

Jason is like a premium brand of engine oil, helping out wherever required to keep every aspect of the pharmacy operating smoothly. A muso studying Music at Melbourne University, with pharmacy training, he’s the sort of guy our patients can rely on. Jason tells us he’ll work for free if we plug his music.

If you’ve ever wondered where missing paperwork go, look no further than David.  David is our resident administrator, turning all those bits of paper into numbers.  A former pharmacist, he’s been known to impart a bit of wisdom to a patient or two during his visits to the pharmacy.
