What is an independent pharmacist?
Simple. It’s a pharmacist that works for an independent pharmacy. Since I’m sure that answer isn’t sufficient, I would add that an independent pharmacist is one who practices at a pharmacy that is not owned by or generally affiliated with a large, publicly traded chain pharmacy, like CVS or Walgreens.

About The Independent Pharmacist
Currently, I am an independent pharmacist, but I have experience with several retail chain pharmacies including CVS, Target, and RiteAid. I also have some hospital and VA experience. As long as I have a choice, I will never go back to work for anyone other than an independent pharmacy, and I hope you will soon see why.
