Health professional endorses local pharmacist

Dear editor,

As a family physician, I am familiar with the Marigold Pharmacy.

My patients fill prescriptions there and often obtain advice about natural health products. In conventional medical practice, there are many gaps in the therapeutic options that we have for our patients and “natural medicines” can fill some of these short-comings. However, it is a jungle out there in the natural medicine field – it is difficult for patients to make appropriate choices without experience or training. Rudy Sanchez, the pharmacist at Marigold Pharmacy, has consistently given sound advice to my patients and I would not hesitate to continue consulting him about natural products. Furthermore, I have no doubts about his proficiency in filling regular and compounded prescriptions. Sincerely,



Stephen Malthouse, MD
