A new Benzer Pharmacy store opened November 13, 2015 at 2722 W Old Highway 441 Mount Dora, FL. The pharmacy will be open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday to Friday and 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday.

Getting to know patients and their families, understanding their total health concerns and making the services more convenient are all ways that Benzer Pharmacy is working to improve the health of patients.

“Our pharmacist will consult with patients and their providers directly. This adds up to quicker, easier, more personalized service from the pharmacists and providers,” narrates Prabir Saha, Benzer Pharmacist in Mount Dora.

This drug store is the fourth to be opened this week by Benzer. There has been a lot of work put into opening these drug stores including doing the market research, getting the licenses, hiring staff, and much more.

Benzer Pharmacy commends the hard working and dedicated team whose abilities have played an important role in the success of the pharmacy’s overall growth.

Harry Patel, Business Development Specialist says growth is a part of Benzer Pharmacy’s business plan based upon the current opportunities for continued expansion in both new and existing markets.

Diana Calle, Human Resource Director does the staffing for all the stores. Courtney Griner, Office Manager, orders and schedules all pharmacy dispensing software and Carly Tietz, Acquisitions Manager, leads and guides the team from construction to opening day.

Dolores Imlay, Contracting Specialist does the contracting for Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs), and wholesalers. Dolores performs Control Substance Ordering System (CSOS) enrollment and oversees general and professional liability insurance as well as workers’ compensation for new locations.

John Cox, Operations Manager, ensures both legally and cosmetic tasks are achieved before the store opens. John works on sight to oversee construction, deliveries, staffing, inventory, and training while Jessica Connor, Marketing/Signage Specialist, obtains signage permits and oversees installation. Jessica also gets all the necessary marketing material needed including coupons, flyers, and sending out direct mail.

Cassandra Rouch, Purchasing Manager, orders all the necessary equipment for the drug stores including office, pharmacy, and cleaning supplies; while Jessica Riviera, Licensing Specialist, ensures the store has the state specific license plus coordinates installation of all office utilities. She further ensures the store has its interior impeccably displayed with simplicity, injected with green and orange color designs to depict the pharmacy brand color.

Finally, we have the grand opening. Here Emah Madegwa, Media and Public Relations Manager, ensures that the store location is correctly listed online, and sends out a press release to promote the drug store including advertising and sharing the information on social media; while Samantha Huettig, Events Coordinator, reaches out to the community through events and conferences plus creates partnerships with health organizations in the community.

“Following this explosive growth, successful track record and phenomenal customer satisfaction, we are confident that our aggressive growth trajectory will continue throughout the end of 2015 and beyond,” explains Alpesh Patel, President of Benzer Pharmacies.

“Benzer Pharmacy has never experienced a better time to expand. We have the sites, the financial resources, the people and a dramatic increasing demand for specialty medications and prescription drugs over the past years to fuel our growth,” Alpesh adds.

As a part of the community in Mount Dora, the pharmacy envisions to be champions for patients by working hard to offer quality healthcare services.

"I really like working directly with patients and interacting with them on a personal level, where we can address each other by name. I like to help people with their healthcare. I'm looking forward to serving the community." Prabir concludes.
