Meet Our Staff


Darryn moved to Frederick in 2001 after graduating from Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy in Virginia.  He enjoys getting to know his patients personally and caring for their individual healthcare needs.  In April 2017, to better serve his patients and to provide compounding services he further completed his education in the Science of Pharmaceutical Compounding from the University of Florida School of Pharmacy. Pharmaceutical compounding provides customization of medications that are not available commercially.  It also provides treatment options for patients who are allergic to many of the inactive ingredients and additives in commercially available drugs on the market.  He believes it is important to maintain strong relationships with not only patients and physicians, but also local non-profit organizations that help meet the needs of many of our Frederick residents.  He is proud to work with these local organizations that bridge the gap in the care of patients and feels privileged to be part of what makes healthcare affordable for patients with the greatest needs.  He enjoys being a preceptor and hosting pharmacy students from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and Shenandoah University School of Pharmacy for their clinical training at the pharmacy.
