I want everyone in Lincoln and Logan County to know
what a gem we have in Bruce Stacy at Stacy's Family Pharmacy. As a
physician, I have worked with Mr. Stacy for years. He is always
available to answer questions for me, and I have relied on his
expertise to compound medications for my patients over the years.
Lately, I needed help for myself. I have been battling food
allergies for over a year and only recently thought about
over-the-counter medications as being a potential source of my
symptoms. I called various companies looking for a pain medication
to take for a headache.

It finally hit me that I should call the pharmacy that I have
used for years and ask if he had any databases that could
cross-reference my allergies with medications like acetaminophen,
ibuprofen and aspirin. Bruce quickly called me back and informed me
that he could make me ibuprofen without fillers. What a relief!
We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful hometown pharmacist
on whom to call with problems or questions. Please patronize his
establishment so we don't lose him in this current financial
Melissa Cox, M.D.
