Hank Parsaniya

Hank Parsaniya, BSc Pharmacy, registered with OCP

Hank is the pharmacist and owner of Trail Capital IDA Pharmacy Uxbridge. He is on a mission to change the perspective of how the community sees pharmacists. He always asks himself (and others) "patients see pharmacists more often then their family physicians and everybody says they have a family doctor, but why doesn't anybody say they have a family pharmacist?" Mental health, wellness and awareness are his main areas of interest.

Being a pharmacist puts Hank in a unique position. Nobody needs to make an appointment to see him, and he has created his pharmacy as a safe space, where anybody can come over and chat with him. He always has time for you. He believes that - in appropriate situations - medication has its role in the well being of a person, but the collaborative approach of lifestyle changes is equally as important. He also understands the importance of having open discussion with caregivers or loved ones of the patient too. You can follow him on Social Media on Facebook at Trail Capital IDA Pharmacy or on Instagram and Twitter @trailcapitalida.
