We understand it can be overwhelming for parents to navigate pharmaceutical care for your child. That’s why the CHOC Specialty Pharmacy team of trained pharmacy technicians and clinical pharmacists are dedicated to offer personalized services for pediatric patients receiving specialty medication(s). Specialty medications are usually needed for complex diseases, costly, require special handling and/or storage conditions and might not be available at local pharmacies.
CHOC Specialty Pharmacy works directly with your doctors and nurses to ensure your child has timely access to the specialty medication(s) at the lowest cost possible. Our specialty clinical pharmacists are trained in complex diseases and are available whenever you need us to discuss your medications, symptoms, side effects or any questions related to your child’s medication therapy.
