Sponsor spotlight: Paktia offers pharmacy services close to home, with free delivery

Local pharmacy services are offered close to home, no need to travel too far. Paktia Pharmacy is located in downtown Edmonds and offers services that come in handy in the times we are living through.

They offer free prescription delivery, for patients unable to come to the pharmacy to pick up medications. Paktia can deliver them to you at no charge (if within 15 mile radius of pharmacy). Deliveries are M-S. It is recommended that delivery services are requested 1-2 days in advance. Prescriptions without refills or items that need to be special-ordered may delay delivery. Patients must be present to accept the prescriptions at the time that they are delivered.

Rashid Jamali, pharmacist and owner of Paktia Pharmacy says, this not the time to ignore your vaccination schedule. ‘We offer the following in-house vaccinations: influenza, pneumovax, Shingles (Zostavax), Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis, and Hepatitis B,” he says.

Additionally he says, “if the vaccine you’re looking for is not listed above, please don’t hesitate to call and check with our pharmacist. Most vaccines are available without an appointment however it is advisable to call the pharmacy beforehand.” Vaccinations are offered in a safe, hygienic environment, with proper COVID-19 precautions in place.

Compounding Services are also available. Jamali works directly with medical professionals like MDs, OB/GYNs, urology doctors, dentists, naturopaths and veterinarians to formulate medications to match patients’ specific needs. His philosophy is that as a family-owned and operated business, he embraces the opportunity to provide personalized attention and quite simply, the best service in town. This new service will allow him to do more of that.

Often the standard route of administration of a medication is a problem and patients have special needs. Solutions to meet these challenges are often found when medications are blended or formulated to the unique dosage and strength of the patient’s prescription in concert with the precise mode of administration needed.

No member of the family is left behind in Paktia’s list of services. Consider them for your pets’ medications too. Jamali says, “We now serve your entire family by filling your pet’s prescriptions. If you have pet health insurance, we can provide you with a copy of your invoice to submit a claim.”

  3. We’ve been going to Paktia Pharmacy for years. Rashid is friendly, caring, and knowledgeable, and fulfills all of our prescription and vaccination needs. Another big plus is parking behind the building and a back door for easy access.

  4. Since the time, a few years ago, Rashid had opened Paktia Pharmacy in Edmonds I had my medication needs called in from my doctors. Paktia Pharmacy is a welcoming, friendly place and Rashid always finds a way to
    help and inform.

  5. If you haven’t switched over your prescriptions to Patkia because you think they will be more expensive there – do check with Rashid – we have found that he can not only match but often beat the prices of the big chains. Plus, the personal service he and his staff offer cannot be beat. We are so lucky to have Patkia here.

  6. When I moved here a few years ago, I was delighted to find that Paktia Pharmacy had just opened, and I could get my prescriptions filled right down the street. I have since come to especially appreciate the willingness everyone there has to solve problems by contacting my doctor’s office for refills, delivering my prescriptions, advising me about new medications, giving injections…just anything and everything I might need from a pharmacy. And all in a very personal and caring way. Thank you so much, Rashid and everyone at Paktia!

  7. I am so grateful for Paktia Pharmacy’s excellent service and convenience. It is delightful to have such knowledgeable and kind people in our neighborhood to help us with prescriptions and more. They can deliver to your home and they offer comparable pricing and speedy processing.

  8. My first visit I was concerned that perhaps prices would be higher than competitors. I have found that this is not the case. Service is helpful and friendly. In addition, I can walk there.

  9. Rashid is knowledgeable, professional and extremely friendly. We were among his first customers. He is a very important asset to the Edmonds community!

  10. Rashid is a remarkable professional who goes the extra mile in listening and taking care of his customers. Edmonds is blessed to have Rashid and his friendly staff always being ready and able to met our needs. We have been going to him for years and he is the BEST!
