"I joined API and I found that API is not just a buying group, but rather; it's a big family taking care of most of my business and personal needs even before I think about them (e.g. PHARMADVISE), meanwhile, unlike other banners or buying groups, I'm still the real owner and the real decision maker of my own business. I'm very happy that I'm an API member and I recommend all independent pharmacy owners to join API."
Emad Keryakos, Wellington Drug Store, Ottawa, (613)-680-6789
"I joined API after leaving the retail chain world, not knowing what to expect. API has taught me about the other side of the community Pharmacy industry and has shown me that independents can do it better! API gives my business the flexibility it needs to meet my patient's needs. More than I have ever seen in the retail chain pharmacy side of things. API has grown with my business and helped make it what it is today."
