A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH
Welcome to North Care Medical Pharmacy in NEOMO Medical
Sylvain Gratton BSc.,B.Pharm,RPh.
Pharmacist, Manager, co-owner
I have been a pharmacist for more than 14 years with over six of experience as a pharmacy manager. I am as passionate now about this profession as I was when I helped my first patient manage their medication. Patient care, customer service and building relationships have always been my #1 priority and this can be felt the moment you step inside North Care pharmacy. I am locally born and raised and am fluent in both French and English. I've received my pharmacy education in "la belle province" at Laval University in beautiful Quebec City. My wife Chantelle (a certified health coach) and I love to stay healthy/active and try to instill and exemplify healthy habits to our two beautiful kids.
Lisa brings to the pharmacy team a wealth of knowledge gained from over 20 years of pharmacy experience. Her dedication, patience and willingness to help our patients is what makes her a valued team member like no other. I have worked alongside Lisa for almost 10 years and am looking forward to the many more that are still to come.

Medication reviews (Medschecks)
Are you experiencing side effects from your medication?
Are you confused by all of the medications that you're taking and are they all still necessary to maintain your health?
Are you interested in learning how to take your medications more efficiently and in safer way?
Do you need an accurate medication list to keep with you at home, when you travel or when you are visiting a specialist or the hospital?
These are just some of the questions one may ask themselves and realize that they would benefit from a medication review with a pharmacist.
These medication reviews called MedsChecks are a government-sponsored service that allows you to meet with your pharmacist to review your medication history in order to assess its appropriateness, effectiveness, tolerance and compliance. The need for this service can be complex such as identifying drug-related problems and explaining in detail the reason for use of each medication and how to properly take them or it can be as simple as providing a best-possible medication history to you and your physician.
