Local physician recognizes value compounding pharmacist Bruce Stacy brings to community

Send a link to a friend 

Dear Editor:

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.

[to top of second column in this letter]

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 climate.


Melissa Cox, M.D.
