Meet Our New Pharmacist, Mona!
news-welcome-mona.jpg

We are so excited to introduce our new Pharmacist, Mona Sadri, who recently joined the Central Compounding Pharmacy team in May!

Mona grew up in Ann Arbor, MI and studied for her Doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Michigan. After graduation she moved to Los Angeles and began working for a pharmacy chain. However, after 4 years she was craving something more personable and fulfilling and moved on to a job at a boutique pharmacy where she realized her true interest and appreciation for compounding and the ability to offer an alternative to patients that don’t respond to traditional forms of treatment. 

In her free time, Mona likes to head to the beach or explore new places around the city and takes every opportunity she can to travel. 

If you get a chance please say hello and welcome to Mona the next time you visit our pharmacy!
