Established by local pharmacists Bob Geldreich and Fred Boyle, Script Pharmacy opened its doors in 1978 as an independent Calgary pharmacy. After being approached by a dermatologist inquiring about a specific requirement that a regular prescription could not treat, Bob realized that there was a market for compounding services. Connecting with medical practitioners and reaching out to the community, Script Pharmacy began providing the customized treatments not offered by mainstream pharmacies.
In 1980 Bob became the sole owner of Script Pharmacy and prided himself on Script’s “fast and friendly service”, quickly becoming one of the first compounding pharmacies in the city to offer same day (while-you-wait) service. In 1984, after joining the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) and with the knowledge and demand of compound pharmaceuticals, Bob resolved to build a pharmacy committed to this source of treatment.
Throughout the 1990’s the pharmaceutical industry and specifically the field of compounding medications was rapidly changing. To ensure their longevity, Script Pharmacy set out to acquire as much awareness and skill on the advancements being made in areas such as veterinarian compounding and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Building on this commitment and tradition Script Pharmacy continues to remain current on new developments and findings and to using this knowledge to enhance the health and wellness of its clients.
In the last 15 years Script Pharmacy has experienced another resurgence of interest and passion for compounding medications. Three new business partners, Lauren Geldreich, Galvin Ding, and Aleem Datoo, and the addition of several other energetic pharmacists to the Script Pharmacy family has enhanced our pursuit of making a difference in the pharmacy industry while providing excellent service to our clients.
Over 35 years ago, the original store was located in the 506 Medical Centre in SW Calgary and comprised of only 3 staff. On February 22, 2011, Script Pharmacy opened its doors in a new location that includes a spacious lab, sterile room, capsulation area, front store and consultation rooms for its clients and a staff of over 25 members. When asked about Script’s long standing success, Bob passionately points to the benefits of compounding medication and the extraordinary number of highly qualified individuals working to assist clients with their health care needs.
