Who We Are
Global Pharmacy’s origins date back well before the name came to be — and far from the United States’ west coast. Global Pharmacy’s co-founders, Khaled Abdelrazzak, Rph, and Mohamed Bassiouni, Rph, became best friends in third grade while living in Egypt, with both men receiving Bachelor of Pharmaceutical Sciences from Egypt’s Alexandria University in 2003. Beyond receiving their BPS degrees, both Khaled and Mohamed earned the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy’s (NABP) Foreign Pharmacy Equivalency Certification (FPGEC), attracting the attention of the Rite Aid Corporation in 2005. Once Rite Aid became aware of Khaled and Mohamed’s dedication to and knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry, the groundwork was then laid for big next steps for both men.
As pharmacy interns for Rite Aid, both Khaled and Mohamed were quickly promoted to higher positions within the same company. Though both men were initially at different stores, each propelled their respective pharmacies towards higher volumes of prescriptions being filled, and undertook numerous managerial responsibilities with each being responsible for dozens of employees and stores. Years later, in 2014, Khaled and Mohamed bought Eastern’s Pharmacy. Inheriting a lower volume of prescriptions per week, the two have captured Eastern’s potential; with Eastern’s now filling over 1000 prescriptions per week, a second location has been opened to meet the Kent’s demands: Welcome to Global Pharmacy. With expanded services, Khaled and Mohamed are meeting the needs of Kent’s residents, and doing so with customer-centric compassion.
What We Do
Khaled and Mohamed have long understood the difficulties and frustrations clients experience with filling and refilling prescriptions. Accordingly, Global Pharmacy offers medication compounding for easier, faster, and a better prescription filling experience. This harkens back to how medications were once filled until mass manufacturing of prescriptions drugs became commonplace. This service is especially helpful for clients who rely on extremely specific drugs to meet their needs. Moreover, our pharmacy compounding services work wonders for those who have prescriptions that aren’t always available in larger pharmacies. This is one of the negative side effects of mass produced prescriptions. Like other frustrations that plague customers, Global Pharmacy seeks to address these issues by providing customer-centric services that make getting the prescription(s) and dosage(s) you need much more simple. Moreover, you’ll have the opportunity to speak to our pharmacists directly to better explain your condition(s), and in turn, learn how Global Pharmacy can meet your specific medication needs.
Pet Prescriptions made Easy
Humans aren’t the only animals that need medication. Our four-legged friends often require various medications that can be difficult to find in some larger pharmacies. More specifically, some medications are too strong or bitter for some pets; allergies are a concern, too. And, sadly, sometimes our pets are too sick to swallow the pills or medications available. Global Pharmacy seeks to circumvent these situations by offering pet medication compounding, making it easier to get your pet the meds s/he needs to live a healthier, happier life.
Customer-focused prescription compounding isn’t the only detail that further distinguishes Global Pharmacy from other pharmacies. Global Pharmacy recognizes that our customers seek numerous pharmaceutical services, and have expanded into offering vaccinations, durable medical supplies, vitamins and over-the-counter medications, as well as options for long-term care. And, with Kent being one of the fastest growing and most diverse cities in Washington State, Global Pharmacy is proud to note to the staff offers these services in a number of languages, including English, Arabic, Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu. This allows us to better serve our neighbors, and to deliver the same exemplary service in a number of languages that help us continue to build relationships and trust among our customers and neighbors.
