Your compounding pharmacist at Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy is Navid Vahedi, BSc, Pharm.D. Dr. Vahedi holds the BSc in Neuroscience from the University of California at Los Angeles where he graduated from in 2002. After some exploratory work in the field he entered upon the formal study of Pharmacy at the University of Southern Nevada where he received his Pharm.D degree in 2006. Dr. Vahedi then acted as a manager for Longs Drugs between 2006 and 2009. As a result of this experience, he has learned to identify some of the shortcomings in standard pharmaceutical practice.
Dr. Vahedi was convinced by experience that the compounding pharmacist could offer superior service and specialized preparations. Therefore, he undertook post-graduate training in compounding and received his certification as a compounding pharmacist from the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) in May 2009. Thanks to this special training, Dr. Vahedi was able to open the doors to his own professional compounding pharmacy. He now brings a high level of expertise to the all-important relationship of doctor, patient, and pharmacist. Dr. Vahedi’s extensive training in specialty compounding enables him to join forces with your physician to provide exactly the right pharmaceutical preparation to meet your specific needs.
One of Dr.Vahedi’s first cases as a compounding pharmacist illustrates very nicely what a committed compounding pharmacist is able to do that is well beyond the scope of the service provided by the usual pharmacist. The physician of a young married woman called Dr. Vahedi at Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy for a consult concerning a recurrent problem of apthous ulcers commonly called “canker sores.” Having learned that women are slightly more apt to develop this problem on a recurrent basis, and well aware that a problem of this nature could be a very serious one for a young married couple, Dr. Vahedi at Fusion Rx Compounding Pharmacy developed a specialty medication using appropriate components such that the patient was able to get relief from this condition within three days. Both the patient and her physician were grateful and relieved by Dr. Vahedi’s solution of the problem which is now completely controlled.
