John Platt, RPh

Owner Pharmacist; Compounding Specialist

John graduated from the Howard University School of Pharmacy in 1980 Magna Cum Loude. Working closely with pharmacy customers at his franchise of The Medicine Shoppe, John began to realize that the best option for medication is not always available in a conventional pharmacy. His desire to help patients solve their medication problems steered him toward pharmacy compounding. John has since completed over 100 hours of continuing education credits including Basic Compounding, Veterinary Compounding, and Hormone Replacement for Men and Women. He is currently owner pharmacist at The Wellness Pharmacy where he enjoys building relationships with patients and prescribers and finding creative and innovative ways to solve patients’ medication problems.
