Kushal Patel

Pharmacist Manager

I am the pharmacy manager and owner at Comox Valley Pharmacy. I have previously held several positions as staff pharmacist and pharmacy manager across different pharmacies throughout the island for the past 9 years. My wife and I decided to settle in Comox Valley few years ago as it is a beautiful place to live and raise a family.

Patient care and their satisfaction are my motivation  and also what continues to strengthen my knowledge as a community pharmacist. I enjoy helping others and making a positive difference in their lives.

Alongside operating our pharmacy, I also enjoy eating variety of cuisines, outdoors, spending time with my family and a good sense of humor.

I am a staff pharmacist at Comox Valley Pharmacy. I have been working as a community pharmacist for over 8 years now. I also work part-time at the Comox Valley Hospital. I am a science and an arts enthusiast and author of a research publication of “Apoptosis inducers in Anti-cancer agents” in the Bentham science journal. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, painting and enjoying outdoors. I have a great sense of humor, just like my husband, Kushal.

Lisa Tukker

Pharmacy Assistant

The Comox Valley has been my home for over 20 years, 19 of which I worked in pharmacy. I joined Comox Valley Pharmacy as an assistant this spring and I am so excited to be a part of this adventure! Working at a locally-owned, independent pharmacy allows me to contribute to the growth and success of this business in a very tangible way. I am passionate about customer service and patient care.

Some areas of my pharmacy expertise include blister packaging, special orders and customer service. Helping people manage their medications is something I love to do! I am also very chatty, so patients find that when they come in to the store, they are treated like friends and not just customers.
Outside of work, I enjoy camping and fishing with my husband and son as well as spending time in our garden.
