Meet the Pharmacists

Meet Joel

After 14 years of helping patients through the NHA Pharmacy, the Mission of NHA is still what drives Pharmacist Joel Levitan. “It’s important to me that all patients walk away feeling like they were treated fairly and with respect,” he said.

As a pharmacist at NHA, he feels like he gets to make a difference in patients’ lives by providing them with information they need about medications that are prescribed to them.

And he gets to help them save money. “Because of the way our pharmacy is set up, I can get the patient a fair price every time.”

One of his most important duties is medication counseling to make sure patients understand how the medication helps them and how to take it to make it effective and safe. “The medications help them control their disease, but only when taken properly,” he said.

Joel is a registered pharmacist in Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky. He received his degree from the University of Toledo and has been a pharmacist for 55 years.

Meet Greg

For more than a year, Greg Kramp has been one of the friendly faces at NHA Pharmacy. “What I love about working at NHA is that I rarely have to say, ‘we can’t help you with that,’” he said.

He enjoys being part of a team that coordinates care to solve problems for the patient. One of the main ways he helps is finding alternative medications when insurance doesn’t cover what the provider prescribed.

“I find this kind of work rewarding because sometimes these barriers prevent patients from getting medication they need.”

Greg’s goal is that every patient walks away feeling like the pharmacist is looking out for them. He received his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Findlay. He has been a pharmacist for 12 years.

“We offer friendly, quality service at an affordable price,” he said. “We’re here to help you on your journey to better health.”
