Maria Akhnokh

Maria Akhnokh


Introducing Maria Akhnokh, a compassionate and accomplished pharmacist, loving mother, and an avid advocate for holistic well-being. With a strong academic background and diverse professional experience, Maria has made a significant impact in the field of pharmacy and remains devoted to both her career and family life.

Maria’s journey into the realm of pharmaceutical sciences began at the esteemed Faculty of Pharmacy at the German University in Cairo, Egypt. Graduating with honors, Maria showcased her dedication and aptitude for the field. Driven by a desire to expand her expertise in cardiovascular health, Maria pursued a Master’s degree in Cardiovascular Pharmacology at the prestigious University of Alberta in Canada. During her studies, she delved into the complexities of cardiovascular drugs, deepening her understanding of heart-related conditions and their management through pharmacological interventions.

Maria embarked on her professional journey as a pharmacist in 2016. She joined Shoppers Drug Mart. In this role, Maria consistently displayed a genuine passion for patient care, leveraging her knowledge to ensure the well-being of those she served. Her compassionate approach and dedication to her patients earned her respect from both colleagues and those she served.

Recognizing the importance of expanding her scope of practice, Maria pursued and obtained an additional prescribing authority, granting her the ability to take a more active role in patient care. This enhancement in her capabilities enabled her to collaborate closely with healthcare providers, facilitating more comprehensive and individualized treatment plans for her patients. Moreover, Maria’s dedication to her patients’ well-being led her to become a Certified Diabetes Educator. Through this certification, she demonstrated her commitment to empowering individuals with diabetes to better manage their condition and improve their overall quality of life.

Driven by a desire to expand her skills and focus on specialized patient care, Maria made the pivotal decision to join Scripts Medical Pharmacy. In this new role, she found herself working closely with cancer and ENT patients, where her expertise and compassionate nature could make a profound impact. Collaborating with doctors and healthcare providers, Maria ensures seamless communication and coordination of care, ensuring patients receive the best possible treatment and support throughout their journey.

At Scripts Medical Pharmacy, Maria found fulfillment in supporting patients through their cancer treatments, providing them with not only the right medications but also emotional support and empathy. Her dedication to understanding the unique needs of each patient fosters a trusting relationship that empowers patients to manage their conditions with confidence and hope.

Beyond her thriving career, Maria finds great joy in being a mother to her two little ones. She cherishes the precious moments spent with her children, making time for family activities that promote bonding and create lasting memories. Together, they enjoy sunny days at the beach, leisurely walks, invigorating bike rides, and most importantly, having fun and embracing life’s adventures as a unit.

Maria is a great pharmacist. Very competent and kind. I heartily recommend you call her for an appointment when you need a vaccine. She will be there and she is excellent at giving a pain free shot. Thank you Maria! Call her and tell her when to expect you because she does not work Thursdays. You can also use their app to send her your prescriptions. Lots of free parking and a wheelchair ♿️ accessible elevator to the 2nd floor. If you get hungry check out Padmanadi Vegan Resturant in the same building which I have also reviewed.

Had a wonderful experience today. They filled my order quickly and efficiently, and they were exceedingly kind and polite. Would recommend if only all pharmacies could be this efficient.

I told him and I will tell you all, Pierre deserves an award for his efficiency and proficiency in his work. Pierre, you are one of the many unsung heroes combatting this pandemic. Please take a well deserved vacation once this is all through! :)

Personalized care, they’re careful to follow up with me and the online tools/delivery make it easy for me to continue to use this pharmacy even after my physician moved from the building.
