Dr Shane Jerominski - A.K.A The Accidental Pharmacist was raised in that thriving metropolis an hour’s drive north of Philadelphia, known as Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. He’s a veteran of the US Navy where he was trained as a Sonar Technician. Leaving after 4 years with no marketable civilian skills and custody of his infant son (long story) he returned to PA and started college. He was a pre-med major who found pharmacy by “accident.” After graduation, in fact, the night following the ceremony he embarked on a road trip across the country to start his new life and illustrious career with Walgreens in Palm Desert, California. Five years pass, he jumps ship to Target Pharmacy. Three years pass, that ship torpedos to the bottom of the retail pharmacy ocean thanks to the CVS merger. Eventually, Shane makes a life-altering decision, or I should say is forced, to seek employment outside the big chains at a specialty independent pharmacy. Through a series of happy accidents, he now is a partner at this pharmacy location in a remote area of the Southern California desert.       He has five children at last count because his television has been perpetually broken for eight years and his wife can’t keep her hands off him. When he’s not working in his retail pharmacy setting, he works per diem at a local hospital, and in his rather limited spare time, he makes feeble attempts to entertain follow pharmacy enthusiasts on the internet. Oh and occasionally make a small difference in the lives of those people crazy enough to follow his antics.If you are a past, present or future Pharmacist and You want to create a business and life you love.

I already know that finding a good pharmacy these days is not easy. Many of them work very slowly, so of course you have to be very careful with such pharmacies and you have to read the reviews of those who have already been there. I recommend therefore to read information about blink health, very much learn, I think. And I, before ordering medicines always read about where I will take, so I already know what to expect.
