Rebel With a Cause

“It’s not rebels that make trouble, but trouble that makes rebels.” -Ruth Messinger. When you break away from the traditional way of doing things, you face unique problems - and unique problems require creative solutions. Phillip Baker opened Good Shepherd Pharmacy with the goal to help his patients save money on their prescriptions. Good Shepherd operates on a membership model that gives patients their medication for free (or at-cost) with no additional markups on price. To save time, they use a unique group med sync model where every single one of their patients are on the same sync schedule. They also have a drug donation program aimed to reduce drug waste and help provide free medications. Learn how Good Shepherd Pharmacy is paving a new path and changing their patients’ lives.
