Doug Porter B.Pharm

Practice Manager / Business Advisor

Doug is a pharmacist with over 25 years’ experience working as a Managing Pharmacist. He has wide depth of knowledge from the large corporate chain pharmacy through to the small independent country pharmacy. This insight enables him to know what really works. There aren't many problems which he has not already seen several times before which enables him to guide you through issues effectively and quickly.

His ethos is all about building a real relationship of trust with his clients so he really understands the strength and weakness of your business. This also enables him to help you ascertain future opportunities or threats that your business may face.


Doug has always believed that the best way to create a profitable pharmacy business or any business for that matter is to build a relationship of trust with your patients and/or customers. Getting to know your clients on a personal level and using loyalty programs to build your business are essential for all types of business whether big or small. This is actually a lost art and although it sounds like simple concept it is actually a skill that needs to be developed.
