The addition of an on-site pharmacy allows us to extend our care a step further and provide patients with a personal pharmacist to dispense their medications and be available for consultations.
Birmingham, Ala. (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
PharmaPoint is pleased to announce that West Ave Pharmacy will open in the new River Oaks location of Nigro Dermatology Group today.
Nigro Dermatology is comprised of six board-certified dermatologists - with two physicians who are also certified pediatric dermatologists. Services offered include addressing a variety of skin care needs, as well as informing patients of the latest cosmetic procedures.
“We recognize that every patient has different needs, and we pride ourselves in courteous service delivered to each person that walks through the door,” said Dr. James F. Nigro. “The addition of an on-site pharmacy allows us to extend our care a step further and provide patients with a personal pharmacist to dispense their medications and be available for consultations. It’s a natural extension that allows us to close the continuum of care for our patients.”
For almost two decades, Nigro Dermatology has been providing skin care for the families of Houston. High quality care in a pleasant and professional atmosphere is their goal, with a patient’s experience as the top priority.
“The physicians at Nigro know the importance of following pre- and post-care instructions concerning any dermatological treatment or procedure,” said Paul Albano, PharmD, Senior Vice President of Pharmacy Operations for PharmaPoint. “An integral part of that care is the adherence to medications that are prescribed. A point-of-care pharmacy is convenient for patients, offering an onsite pharmacist to explain dosing instructions, possible interactions with other prescription medications and medication synchronization with existing prescriptions.”
West Ave Pharmacy (http://www.nigroderm.com) is located at 2800 Kirby Drive, Suite A-200, Houston, Texas, 77098.
