Just your average apothecary, feet firmly planted behind the counter of a local pharmacy, but whose mortar and pestle are hitched to a star.
O. Henry described our profession in this way: "The druggist is a counselor, a confessor, an adviser, an able and willing missionary and mentor whose learning is respected, whose occult wisdom is venerated and whose medicine is often poured, un-tasted, into the gutter."

Yes, I'm a pharmacist. Please don't hate me. I didn't make your copay go up. My work experience has been almost exclusively retail, with some work as a clinical preceptor mixed in there.
I am grateful for the opportunities that this profession has given me to serve others. Do you have a question you would like to ask a pharmacist? Ask away. I'll do my best to direct you toward an answer. My style is plain. I like straight talk and practical answers, rather than long words and medical mumbo-jumbo.
My focus here on Hubpages is primarily on prescriptions, pharmacy, and a few hobby articles. My goal is simply to write about what I know about to help others. Do you have a question you want to ask? Ask it here!
I am a Christian, a husband, a father. I am an active member of my local church. I like to teach, love to read, root for the Lakers, eat spicy food and make pickled eggs.
I have a Bible blog in which I write devotionally in an effort to help others understand the Scriptures. I call it Pickled Eggs.
