Our Company's Purpose

We believe in our company's purpose which is "Making a positive difference in people's lives". Because everyone in our organization understands this purpose it unifies us in all we do keeping us pointed in the right direction.

Like most healthcare professionals, we are in this business because we want to help other people. Our team collectively uses their unique skills that they have developed in the pharmacy world to make that positive difference in people's lives.  

For our team to see the positive difference they are making, we need to have ways to measure it. Not only does this result in our patients seeing a significant difference between our pharmacy and other pharmacies they have used, but it refuels the gas tanks of our team members. Everything we do, in some way, points towards the ultimate purpose we have as an organization: The purpose of making a positive difference in people’s lives.

Compound Medication and The claRx Guarantee

Posted by The Big Country Content Team on Feb 26, 2021 11:00:00 AM

Compounding medications is an encompassing process, allowing pharmacists to combine, or mix various ingredients to create medications not available by manufacturers.  Similar to baking a cake, many pharmacies may use the same ingredients to create a compound with the same intended end result, and yet you will find vastly different qualities of cake from different bakers. The same holds true for compounds from different pharmacies.

Utilizing Manufacturer Rebates to Save Patients Money

Posted by The Big Country Content Team on Oct 30, 2020 2:00:00 PM

Here at claRx Big Country Dermatology pharmacy, we work in a symbiotic relationship with the manufacturers that make many of the medications we dispense. We do this by participating in their rebate programs, which are designed to reduce the out of pocket cost to patients on specific medications. Manufacturer rebates are not available for all medications, and they do not help every patient. We believe it is our duty in the dermatology industry to do the most good for most people, which means, when these programs are available for a specific patient, we utilize them.
