Bio

John began his career in healthcare over 25 years ago where he worked as a distribution coordinator in the Main Pharmacy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His journey continued in materials management, then operations management as he took on new challenges in both hospitals and home infusion companies, eventually landing back into the pharmacy world. He worked as Director of Materials Management for Town Total Health in NYC before being recruited as Branch Manager for Apria Healthcare in College Point, NY.

John returned to specialty pharmacy, where he became a sales rep marketing the services of the pharmacy to doctors, nurses, and directly to patients by presenting at support group meetings. John’s interaction with HIV+ patients made him realize the need to provide more extensive education for clients to better manage their medications and stay healthy. He returned to school and earned an associate’s degree in nursing while working part time. John applied his knowledge as a registered nurse to educate patients about the need to be more involved managing their illnesses. His presentations to patients revolved around healthy eating and living with HIV.

Island Care Specialty Pharmacy opened in 2009 with a focus was on managing patients with HIV and Cancer. As the industry evolved, they began providing medications for patients with Hepatitis C and Chronic Inflammatory Disease as well. Since 2009, their focus has always been based on better outcomes for patients managing a chronic illness and they are on the cutting edge of new technology when it comes to patient care.

John is the treasurer of the Long Island Chapter of ANAC, and is a member of NASP, PSSNY (associate member of Long Island Pharmacists Society), and IAPAC. John’s interests include fishing, traveling, cooking, and he is a self-confessed foodie, who loves to sample foods from all different cultures.
