Grandpa’s Compounding Pharmacy is in a unique position to hear what the problems of patients are. Also, doctors will call on a regular basis with a problem and want to know if Grandpa’s might have something different that will work for a problem they are encountering. And yes, they hear from other doctors who are inventing new things to help their patients. So, Grandpa’s becomes a clearing house for information, as well as a place doctors can go to try new things. This story is an example of this.
