Julya Friedman

Pharm.D.

Julya is a partner and co-founder of GPS Pharmacy. She received her doctorate degree with special certification in geriatric care, and special recognition from TEVA pharmaceuticals for excellence in the study of pharmacy. Julya is certified by Compounding Centers of America as a compounder using the latest techniques and drug delivery systems.

Compounding:

Julya’s work on wounds in both the hospital setting and professional career in hospice care generated her interest in compounding. She traveled to Texas to train at PCCA’s headquarters on drug delivery systems that penetrate the skin and mucosal membranes. Her passion for compounding has allowed her to offer the local community compounds for BHRT, podiatric neuropathy/wounds, dermatologic, ENT formulations, veterinary medicine, and more.

Julya believes that specialized medicine is the future of pharmacy. Whether we are treating symptoms of hot flashes, dermatitis, or neuropathy’s, the approach to therapy remains the same; the best combination of drug products in a customized delivery system that meets each patients individual need.

Geriatrics:

With special interest in the geriatric field, Julya became a consultant pharmacist for hospices in Georgia.  To increase cost savings for hospice and improve patient outcomes, she traveled to locations throughout Georgia to participate in IDT’s.  Julya worked at a hospice pharmacy as the on-call pharmacist for after hour emergency care. During this time she learned the gaps in patient care and the specific needs of hospice care. With this knowledge, she founded GPS Pharmacy which is devoted to palliative care.

Julya believes that no patient should die in discomfort. Her mission is to bring patients comfort during their last minutes of life with immediate delivery of medications to ease pain, anxiety, and discomfort.
