(TAMPA) Since 1950, Davis Islands Pharmacy has been taking care of the healthcare needs of local residents. Just a quick ride over the bridge from downtown, they are Tampa’s longest established pharmacy. Purchased by pharmacist and current owner, Abraham (Bob) Bobo, R.Ph. in 1986, the pharmacy team has continued to evolve and add services that meet the needs of patients and local prescribers.
In addition to providing traditional prescription medications, over-the-counter items, a post office sub station, and more, the pharmacy staff can also create tailored medications to meet the specific needs of a patient in a state-of-art compounding lab.
To better serve Tampa’s residents that take multiple medications, Davis Islands Pharmacy has added a medication packaging program. Features include:
• Patients get all of their prescriptions refilled at the same time every month
• Pharmacy will make all the calls to insurance companies and doctors for refills ahead of time
• Refills will be complete and ready for pick-up or delivery the same time each month
According to a recent study, not taking medications as prescribed costs patients an average of $2,000 annually in physician visits.
Bob’s philosophy of providing area residents with exceptional service and offering medications at a fair price is also a main focus of the pharmacy. That’s why they are proud to offer free monthly kids vitamins, free monthly diabetes supplies, immunizations, medication counseling and annual medication reviews, free area delivery and shipping.
