Danica is another one of our compounding pharmacists, having been trained by a prominent compounding pharmacy in Melbourne.

Fiona Childhood   Fiona

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.

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.
