Proudly serving the Pembina Valley since 1999.
Throughout my childhood I wanted to be a doctor. It took me a while to get myself to University; I was a young mother with 2 children when finally in 1991 I was heading towards a career in medicine at the University of Manitoba. I made the adjustment into to pharmacy once baby #3 entered into our family – it was good decision and I have no regrets.
Attending university with 3 young children was no easy task, but it gave me the strength and the courage to face many other challenges in my life. In fact, I went back to university in 2008 to begin my Doctorate in Pharmacy. I was very excited to complete my studies in May 2013, finally attaining the title of my childhood dreams: Dr. Lisa Zaretzky.
My heart is in helping people with their health as it relates to medication therapy and disease state management. I practice pharmacy with a focus on the patient and their personal needs. My education and my determination have guided me to be an entrepreneur in the community of Morden, Manitoba. I am passionate about my role in healthcare and in patient relationships. For me, it’s not just about drugs…it’s about LIFE!
In the photo below is my mother and myself, she was my very first patient! The Apothecary has come a long way since March 2005.
A BIG Thank You to all my first patients and those that have continued to seek out my advice! I DO – very much – appreciate being your pharmacist.
