Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
At the invitation of Richie Ray, Pharmacist / President / CEO of Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott recently visited Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy (“Richie’s”) corporate offices located outside of Houston in Conroe, Texas.
“We work very hard providing education to regulators, legislators, and other officials regarding what evidence-based-compounding really means and its appropriateness within the healthcare industry. Robust patient protection safeguards, strong business-practices, provision of quality compounded medications, and a commitment to patients and physicians, are just a few of the main tenets at Richie’s,” explained Ray. General Abbott got a firsthand look at Richie’s, which boasts state-of-the-art pharmaceutical equipment. Richie’s is a compounding industry leader providing a wide variety of different compounded medications, counseling patients in over 170 languages, accepting over 3,800 insurance plans and offering 24-hour availability to pharmacists for patients who have questions.
An important voice in the compound pharmacy industry, Richie’s is licensed in Texas and has been serving patients throughout the state since 1999. Richie’s favors very tough guidelines for licensing and accreditation.
About Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy
Richie’s is a PCAB-Accredited Compounding Pharmacy (http://www.pcab.org) which is an organization that promotes quality through a voluntary accreditation program and adherence to an established set of principles, policies and standards. As no compounded medication is reviewed by the FDA for safety/efficacy, it is remarkably important, in Ray’s opinion, to always look to a PCAB-Accredited Compounding Pharmacy to serve your compounding needs.
