We offer expertise in evidence-based medicine, therapeutic decision-making and drug therapy problem-solving. We collaborate with health care colleagues in the patient’s circle of care to optimize drug therapy outcomes for patients.
Family doctors, medical specialists and other health care professionals regularly refer patients to our services for assistance with general or specific drug therapy challenges.
Our services are available to anyone with questions or anyone wanting assistance to get the best results from their drug therapies. We welcome self-referrals from patients and family members as well as referrals from any health care professional.
