We would Be Happy To Assist You
At Richmond Village Pharmacy we take a more personal approach than big chain pharmacies. We only do a MedsCheck when we believe it is in the best interests of the patient. We sit down with the patient in our private counseling office and review the medicines as well as any outstanding health concerns. We focus on education and self-management, and aim to identify problems that the patient may be experiencing with their medicines, help them learn more about their medicines, improve their effective use of medicines and educate them about correct storage of medicines.
There is no charge for Ontario residents for a yearly MedsCheck so come and chat with us to ensure you’re getting the best out of your medications.
