Jenna W. Clack

After watching so many patients being failed by the current system, I felt that it was time to return to the basics: the patient, the practitioners, the pharmacist. Together, we can create a team to better serve the health and overall wellbeing of our patients’ unique needs through tailor-made, individualized service.

After over a decade of pharmaceutical experience, it has become evident to me that there is the possibility of a middle ground between pharmaceutical drugs and a more balanced approach that combines scientific advancements in more natural ways. We know too much to ignore the right way to care for patients.

With my extensive experience in bio-identical hormone therapy, compounding, and MTM counseling, I believe that we can work towards helping our patients achieve healthier, happier lives.
