Thank you for visiting our online store at Medicap Health and Wellness, your ONLY source for quality nutrition. Medicap Pharmacy is a family owned and operated, independent pharmacy located in Raleigh, NC. Unlike most online stores we don’t just exist in the cloud. We are here to serve you in person also! We specialize in education that focuses on lifestyle, diet, and proper targeted professional nutritional supplementation. Our expertise in custom prepared compounds and compression hosiery has been an additional focus for us. We have been helping people achieve optimal health through quality nutrition since 2001.
I have been in the pharmacy business for over 30 years. I started my career with the family owned Kerr Drugs chain. I was so excited to help people improve their health by sharing my knowledge of the prescription medications they were being prescribed. As I watched customers, friends, and family members addressing their health with just pharmaceuticals, I realized that there was a missing piece. While medications had their place, they often did not restore people to health they way I had hoped they would.
I did my research and decided to go back to school to learn about nutrition. In 2001 I became a Certified Clinical Nutritionist and I opened my own independent pharmacy where I would have more control over the products I carried and recommended. I made a commitment to only carry quality products at the best possible price. I wanted to be able to make a difference and I have.
Our store has grown from our humble beginnings in 2001. In 2009 I married my wife, Lauren, a licensed acupuncturist who shares my passion for nutrition. Together we travel to at least 6 conferences a year all over the country to learn the latest information about health and nutrition. We both do consults in the store and are also available to do consultations by phone.
My daughter, Kaylan, joined our store as our lead pharmacist in 2010. She makes sure everything runs smoothly when we are away at conferences and is becoming quite the functional medicine proponent herself.
If you come into our store, you will meet Debbie Schofield, our Operations Manager and Wellness Coordinator. She is a walking testament to the power of proper eating and supplementation. You can read more about her story in the “Debbie’s Picks” category.’To your good health!
