Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are formulated based on a physician's prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient.
Pharmaceutical compounding has ancient roots in the earliest of human civilizations for grooming, treating the ill, keeping healthy, and even in discovering poisons and their antidotes. More recently, before mass production of medications became normal, compounding was routinely done among physicians and pharmacists. In the modern age, this art and science has unfortunately been in steady decline. While "Big Pharma" has given us many wonderful drug breakthroughs, at times it has left little room for customized treatment.
Both Drs. Ramsay and Joyce Farah consider it their great fortune to have apprenticed under their father, Dr. Fuad Farah, who has passed down to them the theories and practice of a master compounder. With this unique skill, our doctors are able to formulate original treatments for individual needs combining this ageless art with the latest medical knowledge of disease states. The end result is treatments that work when conventional therapies have failed.
