Business Description: The art of compounding prescription medication is an essential part of the history of medicine. Long before drug companies produced medications on a mass production basis the compounding pharmacist put together materials to end illness and to ease pain. This was done in an appropriate way for each individual case. In former times, of course, the range of health giving substances in use was much more restricted than today. Now the compounding pharmacist can offer the client the best of both worlds. The time- tested arts of pharmacy can now be put together with the most up to date technical methods. Today this can be done with a much greater number of basic components. By doing so, the compounding pharmacist can produce prescription medications that are entirely appropriate to each individual case. Your compounding pharmacist at Fusion Rx is Navid Vahedi, BSc, Pharm.D. Dr. Vahedi holds the BSc in Neuroscience from the University of California at Los Angeles where he graduated in 2002. After some exploratory work in the field he entered upon the formal study of Pharmacy at the University of Southern Nevada where he received his Pharm.D degree in 2006. Dr. Vahedi then acted as a manager for Longs Drugs between 2006 and 2009. As a result of this experience, he has learned to identify some of the short comings in standard pharmaceutical practice. Dr. Vahedi was convinced by experience that the compounding pharmacist could offer superior service and specialized preparations. Therefore, he undertook post-graduate training in compounding and received his certification as a compounding pharmacist from the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) in May 2009. Thanks to this special training Dr. Vahedi is now able to bring a special expertise to the all-important relationship of doctor, patient, and pharmacist. Dr. Vahedi’s extensive training in specialty compounding enables him to join forces with your physician to provide exactly the right pharmaceutical preparation to meet your specific needs. One of Dr.Vahedi’s first cases as a compounding pharmacist illustrates very nicely what a committed compounding pharmacist is able to do that is well beyond the scope of the service provided by the usual pharmacist. The physician of a young married woman called Dr. Vahedi to consult concerning a recurrent problem of apthous ulcers commonly called “canker sores.” Having learned that women are slightly more apt to develop this problem on a recurrent basis, and well aware that a problem of this nature could be a very serious one for a young married couple, Dr. Vahedi developed a specialty medication using appropriate components such that the patient was able to get relief from this condition within three days. Both the patient and her physician were grateful and relieved by Dr. Vahedi’s solution of the problem which is now completely controlled.
