Riverside Pharmacy - FREE DELIVERY - Ribbon Cutting Today

Kakatiya University in the Indian state of Telagana is where Sathish (Sam) went to school to become a pharmacist. He has called Bullhead City home for the last 15 years. I always wonder how people come to live in Bullhead City, especially when they are from so far away. His story is very unique so let's get to know this man that has served our community for over a decade.

Sathish's father was a pharmacist and as a child he saw how his father was able to help so many people by explaining their medicines and genuinely caring about their well-being. He grew up admiring his father and wanted to follow in his footsteps so he went to school to become a pharmacist and Walgreens recruited him directly out of India.

He has worked for Walgreens here in Bullhead City, AZ for the last 15 years, but when corporate policies were not allowing him to offer the best customer service he decided to open his own pharmacy along with a Walgreens co-worker Shannon that came to work with him.

Sathish met and married his wife in India and they have two little boys their eldest son goes to MALC, plays soccer, practices piano and karate. His youngest is still a toddler. They are raising their family here in Bullhead.

Sathish was all smiles today as his little pharmacy which is nestled at the end of a business complex on Hwy 95 2410 Highway 95 Bullhead City, AZ 86442 between Mohave Steak House and Auto Zone was packed with Bullhead City Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, Mayor Tom Brady and council member Dr. Zehri along with several other people from the community. The Ribbon Cutting was held at noon today and it was great to see another small business opening in our community.
