You have just finished a delicious three course meal at a nearby restaurant. What would happen if you found out that the restaurant did not have the proper licensing to handle food? Would you still eat there knowing the risks?
No, probably not.
So why take the same chance with your medications?
Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board (PCAB) Accredited Compounding Pharmacies believe that patient safety is the number one priority. It’s all about quality.
Health Dimensions Compounding Pharmacy has proudly displayed their PCAB accreditation since 2006, making it one of the first pharmacies to achieve this honor. Less than 1% of pharmacies across the United States have earned a PCAB accreditation. This accreditation is so rare because of the rigorous standards pharmacies must meet, from prescription labels to sterile compounding.
CEO Scott Popyk is dedicated to quality. That is why he serves on the board for both the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacist and the Pharmacy Compounding Centers of America.
What does this mean for you?
Health Dimensions guarantees that the prescription you bring in will be made exactly how the doctor ordered. We use the highest quality ingredients possible, ordering only from trusted sources. Your prescription is compounded in a laboratory that is cleaned throughout the day. Our medications go through extensive third party testing by independent laboratories to check for safety, strength, and sterility (when applicable). Health Dimensions is recognized as CQI Center of Excellence by Dynalabs, an independent quality assurance laboratory.
Health Dimensions ships across the United States, in accordance with state law. That means that even if you don’t live nearby, we may be able to deliver your medication right to your door. Guaranteed quality at your fingertips!
And now, we’re taking more insurances than ever.
Go ahead and get rid of those complicated claim forms. Here at Health Dimensions, we’re now taking more insurances than ever before! We work directly with your insurance company and our manufacturers to get you the medication you need, at a price you can afford.
Have allergies or dietary restrictions?
No problem. We have a speciality care team dedicated to the research and compounding of medications that are free of your allergies or restrictions. Upon request, we can make your medication free of gluten, dairy, corn, soy, rice, dyes, artificial sweeteners, and much more!
Why should I be concerned?
The non-accredited New England Compounding Center shocked the Nation when they exposed 14,000 patients to medication tainted with fungus. Officials soon discovered that the pharmacy did not follow strict guideline on cleanliness, dispensing, or compounding.
As this devastating event was unveiled, the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board was flooded with requests from pharmacies wanting to make their facilities safer for patients. Three hundred times the normal number of applicants have applied for this “gold star” accreditation, despite the cost.
