President & CEO - Lifeline Rx Solutions
Robbie and his wife Angela Stokes owned and operated Northside Family Pharmacy for 18 years . Their pharmacy sold 400 prescriptions per day, with 650 compliance packaging patients.
Like many pharmacies, shrinking profit margins represented a continuing struggle. When they made the decision to sell their store, their pharmacy operated at a gross profit margin of 17.5%. After a year of hard work, trial and error, they were able to raise their GPM to 23.6%.
Today, Robbie’s mission is to share the lessons and strategies he learned to help pharmacies drastically improve their gross profit margin.
Robbie believes there is no finer time to be in the pharmacy business than right now as long as you can learn, adapt and overcome. Join Robbie to find out how.
