United Pharmacy Network Sends Another Valued Member to a Giants Game
In the latest installment of “Member Spotlight'' we sat down with Ricky Yung, owner of Arcadia Health Pharmacy, to get some insight on how to become a successful pharmacy in one of the toughest markets, New York City. Arcadia Health Pharmacy’s generic compliance growth earned him a trip to watch his favorite football team, the New York Giants, on September 26th.
Why and When Did Arcadia Come to Be?
"I became a pharmacist to help patients understand the medications they are taking and protect them from medication errors. Seeing them happy and healthy makes me happy. When I decided I wanted more control of how the pharmacy was run, I opened up my first pharmacy. There were certain things I did not agree with, but could not always change under corporate."
What is Special About Arcadia's Location?
"Arcadia Health Pharmacy is located in Arcadia Mall with many doctor offices on the third floor. Many doctors find it convenient to send prescriptions downstairs, which helps facilitate patient compliance to medications."
What Makes Arcadia Successful?
"The pharmacy’s values are patient centered care, excellence, honesty, integrity, and respect. We hope to increase patient compliance with medications to ensure they are living a healthy lifestyle. We do community outreach at public events and fairs to help engage with patients and provide easy access to health care professionals."
