Craig helped to grow that business under the ownership of Nick and Nancy Chervinsky as they expanded to 3 independent community pharmacies in Brewerton, Central Square and North Syracuse. Along the way he studied prescription compounding and became certified by PCCA. After 24 years at the independent pharmacy, Craig moved into a supervising pharmacist position with a local chain drug store where he learned a great deal about the business side of pharmacy and became a NYS certified immunizing pharmacist while employed there.
After a 4-year stint with the local chain store, he moved into a part-time position at Pine Hill Pharmacy in 2012 and also worked at a long term care pharmacy, Harbor Pharmacy, which was owned by the Branshaw Family of Wayne Drugs in Oswego.
After 2 years of working and eventually managing the Long Term Care pharmacy, Craig realized his true passion lied in independent community retail pharmacy, which he was fortunate enough to have settled into at Pine Hill. Craig then began the process purchasing the pharmacy in early 2014.
