We talk with Jenna Wahlstrom Pharm D.
Jenna works at Larsen Service Drug who opened their doors in 1952.
The family business was founded by John O. Larsen. His son Larry Larsen currently owns and operates the business. Their full service pharmacy is ready to provide patients with the highest quality care. Larsen Service Drug also has a location in New Town, North Dakota. Their New Town store offers complete pharmacy services as well as a variety of over-the-counter products.
Larsen believes in leveraging great pharmacy technology. Kirby Lester is a important partner to our business. Larsen also offers telepharmacy services that allow customers to interact with a pharmacist through video conference equipment on days where a pharmacist is not on site.
Larry Larsen, R.Ph. Larry Larsen obtained his pharmacy degree from North Dakota State University. After graduation, he returned to Watford City to eventually take over the family business. Larry acts as the chief pharmacist, managing the day to day activities of the pharmacy.
Debbie Larsen Debbie Larsen started her working career in the cards and candy department at Norby's Department Store in Grand Forks, North Dakota. After obtaining a degree in Elementary Education and teaching for three years, she returned to the retail business. Debbie keeps the business on track as the bookkeeper. She also helps keep the store stocked with new and exciting merchandise as the head buyer.
Our Mission: Always Accurate, Affordable, Reliable, Simple.
Since 1971, Kirby Lester has been reducing counting errors at a fraction of the cost of other automated dispensing devices. In fact, with systems that pay for themselves in months instead of years, Kirby Lester delivers the best quality control and return on investment possible.
But accuracy and ROI aren't the only things on which we hang our lab coat. Our systems also make good sense because they are remarkably easy to use. All you need is a little counter space, a short tutorial, and you're in business. No other pharmacy technology company offers such practical, affordable, no-nonsense solutions. That makes us unique.
Along with our simple, world-renowned tablet counters/pill counters, we offer
