With more than 40 years of experience as a pharmacist, manager, store owner, mail-order pharmacy owner, corporate executive, and clinician, Joel brings experience and knowledge to the leadership position at Focus Express Mail Pharmacy.
Starting in 1973,as a pharmacy intern for a small chain of retail pharmacies, Joel worked his way up to becoming a store manager, general manager, and vice-president. Getting the urge to be an entrepreneur, he opened his own retail pharmacy in 1990 and soon after partnered with a friend to open a national mail-order pharmacy specializing in diabetes.
Along the way, Joel learned the value and importance of giving personalized attention to his customers. He makes sure that his staff treats every customer/patient as a friend, just like your pharmacist did at the neighborhood corner pharmacy years ago. Combining that with more than 20 years of specialized diabetes mail-order pharmacy ownership, you will see why people love the service, convenience, and warmth of their everyday dealings with Focus Express Mail Pharmacy.
Joel graduated in 1973 from Temple University with a B.A. in Psychology and from Temple University School of Pharmacy with a B.S. in 1976. He is a member of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), Society for the Advancement of Baseball Research (SABR), Philadelphia Athletics Historical Society, Adelphi Lodge of B'nai B'rith, and Old York Road Temple-Beth Am.
