Free Medication Reviews by Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri at Popular Choice Pharmac

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is a certified pharmacist at Popular Choice Pharmacy in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. The pharmacy is open six days a week and provides multiple services.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri's insight:

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri has worked for a total of three employers but none seem to be as passionately driven to complete customer care as Popular Choice Pharmacy. The pharmacy aims for customer convenience by maintaining hours of operation six days a week. Opened Monday through Saturday, the pharmacy and staff including Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri push to provide the best in customer care.

"There are a number of services the pharmacy performs for free," states Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri. Some of the three services provided by the pharmacy include: free delivery, free medical review, free diabetes counseling and glucometer training. The medical center also offers flu shots, massage therapy, physiotherapy, and a walk-in-clinic.

When it comes to a review of medication, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is more than prepared to help his customers and patients. "There are many more people on medication than ever before and many have questions about the short and long term effects of their medication. Medical doctors prescribe the medication because they know what it is used for but to really understand medication talking to your pharmacist is best," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

When patients have concerns or questions regarding their medication, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is ready to explain at length all the benefits and risks regarding specific medications. "People want their medication to solve their problem and become concerned if they learn there are negative side effects associated with those same medications. Therefore, as a pharmacist, I believe it is always important to sit down with patients and help them understand their treatment options," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

As a pharmacist, assisting customers and patients in the full understanding of their disease and medication is important. Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri goes out of his way to teach people about their disease and the medication that treats it. By reviewing medications with customers, individuals get a clearer understanding about what their medication does, the medication's limitations, and how else they can care for themselves.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri does more than educate patients and give free medication reviews. He also has experience as a volunteer. Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri has volunteered as a pharmacist in many small villages in Iran. His volunteer work in Iran was focused in medical centers and hospitals.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri Volunteers in Iran

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is thankful to live in a country where access to health care is easy and affordable for many people.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri's insight:

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is proud of his Canadian education. As a student, he studied Biology and Chemistry at Saint Mary's University in Nova Scotia, Canada. After earning his basic degree, he earned a Master's before he attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is a member of several organizations and associations related to his profession. He is affiliated with the Pharmacy Association of Ontario, College of Pharmacy Ontario, Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia, and College of Pharmacy of Nova Scotia. Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is also injection and immunization certified.
Being licensed, certified, and trained by several organizations, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri decided to spend time volunteering where he knew his skills as a pharmacist would be needed and appreciated. "I decided to take time out and be a volunteer pharmacist in Iran. I volunteered and worked for a number of small villages around Tehran and Isfahan, Iran. Much of the work I performed was in either small medical centers or hospitals," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

In Iran, the constitution which entitles Iranians to basic health care and vaccination programs does a lot to keep the population healthy. Fortunately, Iran also has some of the highest standards of safe drinking water, also promoting a healthier populous. With basic health care provided, volunteers like Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri are available to help distribute the order of medication and answer any questions patients have.

"What I do in Iran as a volunteer is much of the same thing I do in Canada; I fulfill prescriptions and educate patients on the medication they receive. Patients who understand their diseases and medication are more efficient at managing those diseases," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri. One of the benefits of his position as a pharmacist is having a skill that is essentially universal.

When Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri traveled to Iran to perform his volunteer services, he knew it would be the smaller villages that would be in most need of his services. "The large cities have greater access to funding. The medical centers have the latest in medical equipment and a full staff. When volunteering, you go where you are needed. Often times, these are the smaller locations that are in desperate need for professionals," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

Children's Hospital Benefits from Volunteer Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is a pharmacist in Ontario who puts a lot of emphasis on patient knowledge and disease education. He often takes time to make sure his patients fully understand what they have and why their medication is necessary.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri's insight:

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri understands the value of knowledge. To become a pharmacist, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri had to attend school. After completing his Pharmacy degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri was determined to use his skills and knowledge for the benefit of others.

As a pharmacist, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri does a lot of work every day. His job often includes looking at the medications prescribed to a patient to make sure there won't be overdosing or harmful drug interactions. While the work of Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri consumes a lot of his time as a working professional, he doesn't underestimate the value of volunteer work.

"I wanted to help people in more ways than one. I decided I could help others in my local community and abroad," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri. His acts of compassion have led him to travel to Iran where Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri volunteered his services as a pharmacist in small villages in Tehran and Isfahan.

While helping small villages was important to Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri on a personal level, helping children in his local area was equally important. Since Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri cannot spend time traveling back and forth to Iran regularly, he spends a great deal of time volunteering at IWK Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia. "IWK is a children's hospital and as hard as it is to see children hospitalized for disease, they deserve attentive patient care as much as anyone," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

Even children possess the capacity to understand that medication is important. Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri is one of the many professional volunteers who work with children and their families at the hospital to understand how to use their medication safely. "Medicating children in the hospital is easy because they have more around the clock surveillance. But when families come in for an out-patient procedure, they often need to be educated on prescribed medication. They need to know what to take, how much, and when," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

As a volunteer at the IWK, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri continues to spread knowledge and patient-centered care. Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri cares about the health of every individual person and is passionate about helping children in need.

Medication Reviews Held by Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri believes patient education is important. He has plenty of volunteer experience and regularly held seminars and medications reviews in different senior citizen homes and organizations.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri's insight:

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri holds a Pharmacy degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is injection and immunization certified and has training in anticoagulant accu-check, medicine reviews training by Nova Pharm, Red Cross training in first aid and CPR, and diabetes care training.

As a pharmacist, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri knows medication can be a double-edged sword. In proper amounts, medication is used to treat ailments and disease but if used incorrectly intentionally or accidently, negative consequences are possible. As a result, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri has made patient education a large part of his practice as a pharmacist. "If ever there is a patient curious about their medication, I always take the time out to speak with them in-depth about the medication, what it is used for, how it relates to their care, and other treatment options available," says Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

Being trained in medicine review, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri often writes about disease states and the medications used for treatment. "I have written and reviewed medication used for Alzheimer's, diabetes, colitis, hypertension, heart disease, MS, eczema, and more. Many of my reviews are written in Persian language magazines," states Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri.

As an alternative to writing reviews of medication in magazines, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri also holds seminars and medicine reviews in places he will be visible and available to the public. As many patients who rely on medicine regularly are senior citizens, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri thought it was only natural to present many of his seminars in senior citizen houses.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri tries to spread news and information about medication as far as he can in his local area. Instead of revising the same couple homes repeatedly, Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri visits various houses and organizations around Toronto, Ontario and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The reviews provided by Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri have helped many people.

Masoud Amidi-Mazaheri considers his seminars as another way of helping his community. He has demonstrated his generosity by volunteering as much as he is capable.
