Doris, PetMeds Pharmacist

Doris Garcia

Doris earned her Pharm.D. degree from Nova Southeastern University and works at PetMeds® because of her love for animals, and because she did her school rotation here with us and loved it. Although Doris was offered several other positions in retail human pharmacies, she waited until a position opened here and applied right away. Since we already knew Doris and how wonderful she is, the decision to bring her on was an easy one. Doris was such a dedicated and bright student while she did her rotation here that we actually featured her in our weekly health blog. She is a true success story and we are so proud to have a second one of our students choose to work here with us.
