A registered pharmacist for over two decades, Chris spent many years practicing in retail and institutional pharmacy settings before opening ACE-Rx and returning to pharmacy’s roots, back to when there were no mass-produced medications and preparations were made for the individual patient. He believes there is a real need for an alternative approach to patient wellness, and that one size does not always fit all.
Chris is a member of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists, and the American College of Veterinary Pharmacists. He is a Fellow of the American College of Apothecaries.
Chris received a Bachelor of Pharmacy from the Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy at Long Island University.
