Medical Conditions that Require a Specialty Pharmacy

Physicians prescribe drugs for a variety of conditions thousands of times per day throughout the United States. In most cases, these prescriptions are made and filled as a “one-size-fits-all” remedy for common but serious medical issues that can have a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life. For many people, when they think of a pharmacy, their first thought is of a large chain pharmacy that doubles as a convenience store. In many cases, visiting this type of pharmacy results in a significant wait time for a relatively simple prescription and meeting with a new pharmacist each time you visit. In addition, these types of chains rarely offer follow up service, and trying to get a licensed pharmacist to answer your questions may take hours or even days.

Fortunately, there are other options available. Kress Specialty Apothecary is a specialty pharmacy that caters to patients who want individualized pharmacological care. We can evaluate your personal situation and help design unique solutions to treat your specific health condition while ensuring you receive the highest level of care available. If you would like to learn more about our wide variety of services, please do not hesitate to visit or call us today.

At Kress Specialty Apothecary, we offer many specialized services aimed at providing excellent and comprehensive care, including the following:

Medical Conditions that Require a Specialty Pharmacy

Custom Drug Compounding

Pharmaceutical compounding allows us to create new formulas apart from traditional commercial treatments so that you receive the best results possible from the drug. We compound drugs to treat a variety of medical issues with dietary restrictions in mind. In addition, we can compound products for use in veterinary treatment. We regularly compound drugs for the treatment of dermatological conditions, autism, ADHD, pain management, and nausea due to other medical treatment.

Pharmacogenetic Testing

When you take medication, you cannot always be sure how your body will react and sometimes you may experience serious side effects or no effects at all—even positive ones. Instead of the trial and error approach that is often used in traditional pharmaceutical settings, at Kress Specialty Apothecary, we provide the option of pharmacogenetic testing. This genetic test uses a simple cheek swab to collect DNA and allows us to evaluate your genetic variations and makeup. This, in turn, gives us significant insight into how your body will metabolize certain drugs and whether you will experience certain side effects so that we can design a drug therapy that is safe and effective for you.

Men’s Health Services

We offer treatment and therapies for men’s issues such as erectile dysfunction, andropause, and hormone imbalance.

Custom Drug Compounding
Veterinary Services

Our pharmacists and staff also have products and therapies available for animals such as dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses, as well as for exotic pets and zoo animals.

Dermatological Treatments

We also provide pharmaceutical grade dermatological products intended to treat skin conditions such as scars, anti-wrinkle creams, cosmeceuticals, and skin creams for dry and cracked skin.

Compounding for Children

As any parent knows, getting children who have chronic health conditions to comply with their treatment regimen can be difficult to say the least. We offer compounding services that alter the taste of a particular medication to increase compliance.
