Doom I Warren Prescriptions

A Unique

Pharmacy

LJ

Meet the people who make Warren Prescriptions special.

arren Prescriptions has been
part of our community since
1975, when Richard "Dick"
and Muriel Warren expanded to a
second location from the corner of
Maple and Lahser, which was then called
Sherman Prescriptions to the Farmington
Hills location on Middlebelt Road. Dick
Warren was a pharmacist known for his
unique customer service who built a very
loyal patient-based clientele that still
remains today.
The Warrens have always lived in
the community they serve. Dick and
Muriel raised all four of their children
in West Bloomfield. In fact, all four
of their children service our local
community today. Alan, Gregg and Brad
are all physicians, and Nori graduated
from the University of Michigan's
pharmacy school in 1981. She eventually
worked alongside her father at Warren
Prescriptions, and they became quite the
team.
In 1999, Dick passed away suddenly,
and Nori and her husband, Mark Klar,
continued the family business. Mark and
Dick had been extremely close and had
shared all of their business life together.
Mark also owns a drugstore in Taylor
called Sax Discount Drug, open since
1985, which is an important fixture
in the Taylor community. Together,
Nori and Mark knew exactly what Dick
wanted his legacy to be and worked hard
to maintain it.
The Klars are proud members of Adat
Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills,
where they were married and all three
of their sons, Aric, 23, Jonathan, 21, and
Michael, 18, had their bar mitzvahs. Nori
also owns Toyology, an educational toy
store in West Bloomfield, with sons Aric
and Jonathan.

What Makes Warren's Different

For 35 years, Warren Prescriptions
has been bringing exceptional service

and unique, high-quality merchandise
to its customers. The gift and toy
departments, run by Muriel Warren's
sister, Cookie, are key components that
make Warren Prescriptions stand out in
a world of national chain stores.
Warren's also prides itself on its
educational toy department, run by
Nori, who has a true passion for finding
toys that educate as well as entertain.

With Mark and Nori's
expertise and annual
trips to national
gift and toy shows,
Warren's is able to
keep up with the
latest trends. This
clearly separates Warren's from the rest.
"It's Warren's pharmacy department,
however, that truly sets the store apart
from the competition," says Mark,
who continues to invest in state-of-
the-art software programs. "With the
personal service that our pharmacists
give, Warren's is unmatched. We take
a proactive role in meeting the local
community's needs through patient-
centered counseling, vaccinations and
free prescription delivery services."
With the country's dynamic healthcare
industry, keeping up with changes is a
daunting task for patients, especially

when it comes to choosing Medicare
Part D prescription plans, a major unmet
need in the community. The pharmacists
at Warren Prescriptions, Sharon Moss,
a 35-year RPH, Andrew Grodman, a 24-
year RPH, and Andrea Roman, a recent
pharmacy grad, meet this need by
offering one-on-one counseling for all
Medicare-eligible patients, whether they
are customers or not.
"It is extremely important for patients
to realize that Warren Prescriptions is a
participating pharmacy with all Medicare
Part D prescription plans, even though
it may not be listed in the patient's plan
paperwork," Mark says. "These lists are
not exhaustive; it would be impossible to
list every pharmacy contracted with the
plan, especially independently owned
stores like Warren Prescriptions."

Warren's Future

In a world where it seems that
another chain pharmacy is popping
up on the corner every day,
Mark and Nori say that Warren
Prescriptions will remain a cut above
the competition through its focus on
serving the local community.
"This is what is really important,"
Nori says. "It seems that the
profession of pharmacy is becoming
less about the patient and more
about monopolizing a market. That
is what makes a family-owned,
independent pharmacy so special."
The pharmacists at Warren's have not
lost sight of the important role they play
in the care of patients. "Without the
pressures of a corporate-run business,"
Mark says, "we are able to focus solely
on our commitment to customer service
and patient care."
With this as their main focus, they
look forward to serving the community
for many more years to come. ❑
