About Rocky Mountain Pharmacy
Pharmacy has been defined as the art or practice of preparing and preserving drugs or compounding and dispensing medicines according to the prescriptions of physicians. Pharmacists are the health-care practitioners uniquely trained to understand the importance of the dosage form and to identify which one best suits a particular patient's needs.
The profession of pharmacy is firmly based on the "Triad"' the physician-patient-pharmacist relationship. Rocky Mountain Pharmacy will be a valuable part of this relationship, as every patient is unique and has different needs; customized medications are an integral part of quality medical care.
Rocky Mountain Pharmacy is equipped with state of the art facilities and equipment that are necessary to provide superior compounded pharmaceutical products. All chemicals and materials used in compounding prescriptions are approved by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) or National Formula (NF).
