ReVive Pharmacy officially opened its doors for business on November 27th, and on December 15th hosted a Grand Opening celebration, complete with a free bounce house for children, complimentary food and drink, and a health and safety fair. The event featured displays and giveaways by health related businesses and organizations, free reflexology, children’s fingerprinting & ID cards by the Lee County Sheriff’s department, and participation from the San Carlos Fire Department.
“We truly believe in the philosophy of our slogan…‘Simplify your meds. Simplify your life’,” said Nicole Deforte, Pharmacist and founder of ReVive pharmacy. “After working as a pharmacist in traditional pharmacies for over 14 years, I realized there were a lot of elements that are lacking. People have lost the personal relationship with their pharmacist in many of the larger, chain pharmacies. As an independent pharmacy, we are able to really get to know each customer, understand their medications, and know their individual situations. We are the type of pharmacy where you can walk in and openly talk to the pharmacist about your concerns, your diagnosis, and ask questions about different types of medications and interactions. At the same time, we are able to work with various insurance companies, as well as those without insurance. It is a misconception that independent pharmacies are higher in cost. We have a lot more flexibility than larger pharmacies, offer discounted prescription options, and are often able to fill prescriptions at lower costs than larger, traditional pharmacies.”
ReVive Pharmacy features all of the services that people are accustomed to from traditional pharmacies, but also has additional services that are unique. A few of the services the pharmacy offers include:
Free delivery - Delivery of medications to anyone within a three mile radius of its location in south Fort Myers is provided at no charge. Those outside of the radius can also receive delivery at a very minimal cost.
