|What Is a “Dosage Form?”|
A dosage form is the shape of your medicine. Capsules and liquids are common dosage forms. Compounded dosage forms offer more options and may include lozenges, lollipops, and topically applied creams.
|Could Compounding Work For Me?|
Many patients are helped by commercially-available medicine, but you may benefit from using a customized medicine instead.

Meet your Compounding Pharmacist- Chris Barnett, Pharm.D - President and owner.
Dr. Barnett is passionate about pharmacy practice, personal patient care, and high-quality compounding. She decided on pharmacy as her future profession when she was only in the sixth grade, and held true to her ambitions when she graduated from the University of Kansas with her Doctorate of Pharmacy (Pharm.D). Upon graduation, Chris accepted a position with the industry leader in compounding pharmacy, the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA). There, she taught compounding techniques at introductory and advanced levels to pharmacy students both at PCCA’s State-of-the-Art Compounding Laboratory and at almost every school of pharmacy in the U.S. and Canada to educate Future Pharmacists on the benefits of compounding pharmacy. She served as Adjunct Faculty at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy, where she taught Pharmaceutical Calculations and Compounding Lab, and has published several articles and textbook chapters. Dr. Barnett left PCCA to open Westchase Specialty Pharmacy, where her passion for customized patient care is embodied in her daily work. Her true passion and specialty is the treatment of pain and chronic wounds, both difficult disease states that frequently benefit from a customized compounded medication. Dr. Barnett sees each patient as an opportunity to improve his or her quality of life through promoting wellness, whether by achieving hormone balance, easing the medication of a young patients, or delivering medicine to the fluffy, furry, and feathery members of the family.
