Pharmacists speak out about the personal touch, personalized medicine, and "personality kids"

Key Points

Personality kids

Actually, I, as the supervising pharmacist, finally got up enough courage to confront my staff. They are good people and employees, but their "personality traits" had become such a distraction in our little, closed-space pharmacy.

Thanks again!"

Keep 'em coming

I just want to let you know that I have enjoyed reading the financial articles in Drug Topics.

I am an in-patient pharmacist practicing in the Southern California area, and I think it is great that your magazine has a section that talks about the financial aspect of this profession.

As pharmacists, we are here to provide quality services to patients who need our help. At the same time, we need to educate ourselves on how to become financially successful in our chosen professional fields.

I was really happy when I noticed that Mr. Robert Gibson had written an article on finding a financial planner ["Simple finance for new graduates," April 2010], because it is something that I have needed to do, but I did not know how to look for one. Thank you for providing this section for us.
