Raef Hamaed, PharmD
Raef is an alumni of Wayne State University’s pharmacy school in Detroit, MI. After graduating, Raef spent time working as a retail pharmacist at a large national chain. While there, Raef began to observe and perfect the art of customer service. Raef was able to try out his new methods
when he took over managing a pharmacy that was ranked last in the chain in customer service. Within a few months’ time, Raef had transformed the pharmacy, and the location achieved recognition as providing the best customer service in the chain.
Raef went on to open 12 of his own independent pharmacies, with customer care being the cornerstone of success. Throughout the years, Raef’s dream has always been to have a full-service pharmacy that worked collaboratively within the healthcare field, provided the best customer experience, and also provided relief and assistance to medical providers. This goal was achieved in January, 2014 with the opening of AVRIO Pharmacy.
In his free time, Raef enjoys travelling the world with his wife Elena, exercising, and increasing his knowledge of the healthcare field through books, continuing education, and conferences.
