Nestled in the heart of the lower Westmount commercial district, Pharmacie Thai Khanh Nguyen, 4451, St. Catherine Street West, shares in the heritage of the pharmacy that has been serving the Westmount community at Metcalfe Avenue and St. Catherine Street West for since the 1930’s. And for Khanh service is the key word.
Delivery of prescriptions, over the counter medicines and day to day pharmacy products from diapers to shampoo is free, a true benefit for housebound seniors and physically challenged residents. And stressed out moms and dads who just don’t have the time for another trip to the store. And especially for those who are dealing with illness… short or long term.
Pharmacie Thai Khanh Nguyen also offers a value added service to its pharmacy clients. A registered nurse is onsite Thursday mornings from 9 to 11 a.m.to assist pharmacy clientele at no charge with vaccinations and flu shots, weekly or monthly injections, testing blood pressure readings or to answer questions about medical issues. Rather than having to trek to a hospital or a CLSC, clients can opt to have doctor requisitioned blood work drawn for a fee of $20. Blood pressure readings are available everyday by using the automatic blood pressure readers.
For Khanh it is more than business. At 32, he purchased the pharmacy six years ago after his mother heard through the grapevine the store was for sale. Immediately he became part of the community, getting to know his clients and their specific needs. Over those years he has seen the pharmacy become a meeting place where members of the community catch up with friends and acquaintances while making their purchases.
His staff of 10 have also become part of that community, welcoming from the cash register or the pharmacy counter regulars … and of course visitors. “It is a privilege for me to be part of such a caring community”, says Khan.
