Inside Rinehart Clinic:  Meet our Clinical Pharmacist

Richard Silverman, R. Ph.Meet Richard (Rich) Silverman, R. Ph., Clinical Pharmacist at Rinehart Clinic. 

What is a Clinical Pharmacist? Clinical pharmacists are specially trained so they can work directly with patients in a clinic or other healthcare setting. 

Why is having a pharmacist in the clinic important? It's part of our team-based approach to patient care. Rich works with our doctors and other members of the team, and most importantly, the patients themselves. He answers questions and offers guidance about prescribed and over-the-counter medications and helps everyone work together to make sure a patient's medications have the best possible results. 

Rich enjoys meeting with patients and is happy to answer any questions they have. "If a patient leaves with all their questions answered and a better understanding of how their medications work, I feel like we have had a successful visit." 

Rich is a believer in integrative medicine. He understands that medications are necessary in many situations, but believes that they should only be used when lifestyle modifications and other non-drug interventions have not worked. 

"I call myself the non-drug druggist" Rich sometimes says. "I can help patients who are interested in weaning off some medications by working closely with them and other members of the health care team, including our Naturopath and Acupuncturist."

Rich is available to meet with patients one-on-one to discuss medications. To make an appointment, call the front desk at 1-800-368-5182, Ext. 101.
