Testomonials

“I developed an open wound on my right ankle. Everything that I was asked to do by my doctor didn’t work and the wound was actually getting worse. A compounding pharmacist suggested two compounded medicines to be applied daily. In two months, my open wound was closed and the pain was gone. The treatment worked as promised.”

M.L., Patient

“Within five days of using the topical solution, my chronic left knee pain subsided approximately 90%, my mental faculties were not impaired professionally, and I am able to sleep pain free. The topical solution developed by Dr. Lanier of Amex Pharmacy relieves[s] the chronic pain in my left knee. I find the topical solution much more effective than the Ibuprofen prescription.”

AmEx Pharmacy Receives ACHC Accreditation for the 4th Consecutive Year

May 24, 2016
  This month AmEx Pharmacy passed its most recent ACHC focus survey, making it 4 years in a row as an ACHC, Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Pharmacy. ACHC is a national organization developed by homecare and alternate-site healthcare industry providers. Their Surveyors and Staff are committed to providing the industry with an accreditation program that helps organizations improve business operations, quality of patient care, and services. ACHC has gained respect and recognition as an accrediting organization uniquely committed to health care providers like AmEx Pharmacy. The Commission has adopted a participatory approach to standards development that actively solicits the input of those most knowledgeable about current approaches to care. The result is a set of practical standards that promotes quality services and ensures optimum care for the patient. The entire accreditation process is a collaborative, educational, and genuinely patient-focused approach. Since 1986, ACHC has become synonymous with providing excellent customer service, integrity, and value to providers like Amex Pharmacy. The Commission’s Surveyors and Account Advisors are friendly and helpful, ensuring that our team at AmEx Pharmacy and others obtain the highest quality accreditation, helping us improve our business, and provide excellent patient care. ACHC has been listening to our team at AmEx Pharmacy and other providers around the country for years, and the Commission understands the challenges that come with any Professional Healthcare Accreditation. We just wanted to take some time out of our busy day down here in Melbourne FL, to say “Thank You For Your Help ACHC!” and we look forward to many years of your guidance and accreditation.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

May 14, 2016
We received a lot of positive comments on our last women’s health blog, so we thought we should shed some light on a topic and question we often get at AmEx Pharmacy regarding the use of hormonal replacement therapy in the treatment of menopause. Hormone Replacement Therapy, HRT, was once routinely used to treat menopausal symptoms and protect long-term health. Then a few years back large clinical trials showed health risks. What does this mean to you? See what the Staff at Mayo Clinic had to say about how the treatments have advanced in recent years, and how to find out if hormone replacement might be right for you: http://mayocl.in/1m0J05J    One current trend we are seeing in this specialty area is younger women using the therapy successfully.  The NIH does a great job summarizing a unique 13-year study on this, conducted by the Women’s Health Initiative, WHI: http://1.usa.gov/1Xa6o5C ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– So what’s the bottom line on HRT… Doctors say that taking a low-dose treatment — the most effective way to get HRT’s benefits while limiting the possible increased risks of heart disease and breast cancer, identified by the WHI.  “We would say if you have moderate to severe symptoms that are sufficient to interfere with your life, then by all means take hormone replacement therapy — but not for more than four or five years” at most, says Jacques Rossouw, MD, director of the WHI. “And in most cases, it’s not even necessary to take it that long.” Hormone replacement therapy is not the cure-all it was once thought to be, but for more severe cases, it remains the best bet for treating menopause’s unpleasant symptoms and improving quality of life. “That’s something I don’t think anybody would dispute,” says Dr. Rogerio Lobo, MD, an OB/GYN on staff at New York City’s New York Presbyterian Hospital. “Just remember to go with the lowest possible effective dose, for the shortest possible period of time.” If you have any questions regarding Hormone Replacement Therapy please feel free to text one of our Pharmacists at 321-872-0723 or call AmEx Pharmacy at 800-644-9431 during normal pharmacy hours.

Fighting the Pain of JRA

May 11, 2016
When we think of arthritis, the first demographic that comes to mind is the elderly. However, the juvenile form of arthritis affects 1 in every 1,000 children. In the United States alone, over 300,000 kids have been diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, or JRA, before the young age of 16. AmEx Pharmacy was introduced to JRA firsthand when we attended the 2016 Magic of Caring event in West Palm Beach FL, hosted by the National Arthritis Foundation. Magic of Caring raises money to combat arthritis, the nation’s leading cause of disability. Most people are unaware that more children have JRA than diabetes, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy combined. This Event was dedicated to helping children who live with JRA by bringing families together, raising funds and awareness, and helping send kids to a week-long summer camp with others who have JRA. Throughout the year the Arthritis Foundation supports numerous regional events like this one, helping raise funding for research, and getting us one step closer to a cure. Growing up with arthritis can be extremely challenging for a child. There are various types of JRA, and it can last anywhere from several months, to becoming an ongoing illness for many years. However, in every instance, early diagnosis and treatment can help avoid long-term joint damage. With the proper care from a team of rheumatology professionals, most children affected by the illness can still live full and active lives. AmEx Pharmacy had the privilege of supporting young JRA champions at this year’s fashion show event, and next year look forward to hearing the tales from the campers we helped this summer. To learn more about JRA and to help raise awareness you can visit www.kidsgetarthritistoo.org or stay tuned to our blog for updates on our progress in helping the fight against this painful disease.

New Wave Dermatology Southeast Regional Conference

May 3, 2016
      Dr. Cohen, M.D. – Gives his presentation on Biologics and the treatment of Psoriasis   Our team was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend the recent New Wave Dermatology Southeast Regional Conference in Ft. Lauderdale FL, as a guest of our friend and colleague, David Cohen, M.D.  Dr. Cohen gave an exciting presentation on a new biologic for the treatment of Psoriasis, and passed on many clinical pearls of wisdom in the process.   “It was especially interesting to learn that most psoriasis patients on biologics still frequently need topical therapy to manage problem areas.” Said Mike Boehmer, R.PH.  “ At Amex, we have a large portfolio of excellent compounding alternatives for patients not well managed by commercial topicals, and we look forward to exploring this topic more with Dr. Cohen.” Dr. Tracey Vlahovic, DPM also gave a very interesting presentation on the treatment of Onychomycosis, and a good practical discussion on treatment of common nail conditions.  “It was great to hear an experienced podiatrist share so many clinical anecdotes and new ideas”, said Mark Sangree, President Amex Pharmacy.  “Many compounded alternatives also exist for nail and foot conditions, and our team was able to add new information to our knowledge base in this area.” Dr. Allison Arthur gave a fascinating presentation regarding the impact of diet on common dermatologic conditions, and Dr. David Sikes gave us much more insight into scleroderma, and it’s connection to other auto-immune diseases. What really makes these Events great is seeing some of our local practitioners and other local partners, like Cathy Pank, MS, ARNP-BC and Anna Whittington, MPH, PA-C from Brevard Medical Dermatology, who both seemed to be enjoying the presentations.  It was also a pleasure for our team to bump into Bonnie Fox, PA-C as well, and we hope to see everyone at one of the upcoming conferences in Florida.  This was a great opportunity for our group to increase our expertise in Dermatology, as well as learn from our peers…you can count on seeing the AmEx Team at the next Conference.   Cathy Pank, MS, ARNP-BC, Mike Boehmer, R.PH. and Anna Whittington, MPH, PA-C
