Give the Gift of Good Health

from South River Compounding Pharmacy

Pharmacist Baylor Rice

Good health and happiness often top our wish lists during the holidays and all year long. When Richmonders seek the perfect gift for birthdays, holidays and anniversaries, they can find just the thing they are looking for at South River Compounding Pharmacy. Owner and Registered Pharmacist Baylor Rice places a high priority on patient education because he believes that knowledge can be empowering, and enjoys changing lives by engaging with customers in a collaborative way to promote their good health. “The more we understand our bodies, medications, diseases and the mechanisms that cause harm, the more committed we become to getting better,” says Rice.

       At a compounding pharmacy, patients get prescriptions that suit their specific medical needs and conditions. This is the foundation of South River’s mission to optimize each patient’s health outcome through exceptional pharmaceutical and nutritional care. They strive to provide the highest-quality nutritional supplements and most up-to-date health information in a warm and friendly environment.

       In addition to prescriptive medicine, South River has a wide selection of natural supplements and vitamins available over the counter. Experts are available to consult with customers to find the best options for every individual’s needs and lifestyle. Quality is the number one concern with supplements, as quality can vary in the marketplace, causing confusion among consumers. “I am very critical about quality,” says Rice, “We deal with companies that are following good manufacturing practices. We do our due diligence and research every product we introduce to our patients and customers so they can be assured that every supplement we offer is of the highest quality available.”

       South River also devotes a large retail space for unique gift-giving items. They use local vendors whenever possible to round out their offerings of quirky and fun, high-end gifts. In particular, their aromatherapy section is expanding to include a full line of essential oils, carrier oils and diffusers. Aromatherapy is effective in addressing stress, mood, energy issues and more.

       South River customers can expect a continued emphasis on patient education and focus on customer service and engagement. The staff wants to learn more about the individuals that they serve so they can better anticipate their natural health and wellness needs.

South River Compounding Pharmacy is located at 11420 W. Huguenot Rd., in Midlothian, and 3656 Mayland Ct., in the West End. For more information, call 804-897-6447 or visit Gift certificates available.
