With the support of family, friends and the City of Arcadia Shirif Mitry cut the ribbon on his new business and opened Mitry Pharmacy yesterday (February, 23, 2017). Located at 145 E. Duarte Rd., Ste. D, Mitry Pharmacy provides over the counter medication, prescription medication and the expertise of a pharmacist who’s been in the business for several years. As well Shirif discussed plans to set up a room with the ability to provide home infusion services, the completion of this project will entail that Mitry Pharmacy can help those in need of more intensive care. Shirif Mitry was given certificates and commendations by LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s representative Debra Mendelhson, the Mayor of Arcadia Tom Beck and Arcadia Chamber of Commerce President Vicki Knight of Century Rooter.
The final product of being allowed to cut the ribbon on his own independent pharmacy is the culmination of a great effort and amazing dedication to providing excellent pharmaceutical services. Shirif entailed that he has seen many aspects within pharmaceutical care, which is the result of working for both corporate and independent pharmacists. Such a background has allowed him to realize his passion in his craft has always been to ensuring that the patient receives the best possible care. He mentioned that a pharmacy should never reduce an individual to a statistic, as is too often seen within the larger corporations. Shirif very much prides himself on being approachable as an expert in the field. Specifically when asked what truly separates his business from the large corporate businesses, Shirif remarked that, “it’s the personal touch.”
