  Our pharmacist Demetri counseling one of his patients on how to use a Rapid Strep Test. Our pharmacists always take the extra time to counsel each and every patient of their prescription and over the counter medications. We believe this aspect of our care is an integral part of our professional duties, which is often overlooked in today’s busy hectic pharmacies.

Demetrios Papanakios, Pharm D: Supervising Pharmacist.

Dr. Demetrios Papanakios earned his Pharm D from the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions at St. John’s University in 2009. He has spent the majority of his professional career working in the community pharmacy setting. He is not your average community pharmacist. Beyond his extensive knowledge of pharmacotherapy, he has also extensively studied veterinary pharmacy, homeopathy, and specialty pharmaceutical compounding. He is a big proponent of natural and homeopathic alternatives to conventional pharmaceutical treatment in certain circumstances. In his free time, he often volunteers to perform flu shot clinics and “brown bag” medication reviews in his local neighborhood. He is truly a gem to the Williamsburg community that he serves.
