Josefs Pharmacy is an independent pharmacy. We offer many clinical opportunities for our pharmacists. We are a specialty pharmacy, so you will have the opportunity to manage specialty patients and complete monthly patient assessments. We manage our chronically-ill patients using medication synchronization and adherence packaging, so you will be involved in helping to manage these programs and incorporate Medication Therapy Management through OutcomesMTM and eCare Plans. You will have the opportunity to provide home visits to patients to help them manage their medications. We also service several long-term care facilities in the area. Finally, we are accredited to provide pharmacogenetics testing and counseling. This is all in addition to providing immunizations and other everyday community pharmacy tasks.
