Almost a forgotten era of medicine, pharmaceutical compounding has made a renaissance in the last 20 years. Physicians are excited, health is enhanced, and lives are saved by medications tailored to the specific needs of individuals. This is pharmacogenomics, when medicine is designed for each unique individual. According to the FDA, it is pharmacy of the future.
We are an industry leader and invest heavily in training, equipment, the highest quality supplies and finished product testing. With almost 60 years of compounding experience, we take compounding to the highest levels of quality, purity, accuracy and convenience in packaging.
FOR ALMOST 60 YEARS O’Brien Pharmacy has fulfilled physicians’ grandest visions by creating custom medications for their patients. Following are some of the different types of preparations we can compound, but it is far from an exhaustive list. Literally tens of thousands of possibilities exist for virtually every specialty of medical practice!
THE O’BRIEN PHARMACY DIFFERENCE IN STERILE COMPOUNDING
- EVERY preparation is made by a pharmacist, not a technician.
- As a PCAB-accredited ® compounding pharmacy, we are inspected for compliance with applicable United States Pharmacopeia standards, Board of Pharmacy regulations and other stringent quality-control requirements. This, along with our own internal requirements, forms the basis for our extensive policies and procedures and documentation. O’Brien Pharmacy began addressing these issues in 1998, long before they became regulatory.
- Documentation includes endotoxin, sterility, and potency testing.
- Individual parameters include:
- pH and buffer systems
- Preservation options
- Our equipment is state-of-the-art, maintained to manufacturer specifications, calibrated and verified as applicable.
As Fellows of the American College of Apothecaries, Harry Everett and Lisa Everett were dedicated to consulting with patients and keeping patient records for every prescription decades before it was required. It was never enough to simply hand over a medication to a patient without making sure that he/she understood the potential benefits and side effects, as well as how to use and store the medication. Through the years, this basic format has extended into what is now known as the O’Brien Pharmacy Consulting Group and our holistic clinical staff. We’ve broadened our scope to include not only conventional prescriptions and compounded medications, but also the appropriate use of micronutrients, nutraceuticals, and homeopathy.
We have in-house continuing education for all staff, so our technicians are savvy about our supplements and their uses and our pharmacists are able to offer knowledgable recommendations. Many staff members also attend scientific symposiums in order to learn more and keep up with the latest scientific developments. Our two holistic clinical consulting pharmacists see patients by appointment to discuss, assess, and recommend lifestyle changes, supplements, and necessary medications in order to help patients diminish or eliminate diseases and disorders or to simply make the most of living as healthy and happy of a life as possible. With our knowledge, we are experienced in combining the best of medicines from around the world, the safe and effective use of supplements with or without pharmaceuticals, and drug tapers.
We invite you to learn more about our consulting pharmacists and all of our staff on our Meet the Staff page. If you are interested in making an appointment, please give us a call.
