Medical Place Health Solutions is a brand new retail and compounding pharmacy in Chatham. We can tailor medications that are prescribed to fit every patient’s specific needs, maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risk of adverse side effects. We offer specialty compounding services which you can find below.
Ear, Nose and Throat
We are able to do all the things a regular retail pharmacy can and more. We carry a wide variety of medications related to Dr. Anjema’s practice and service many of his patients regarding their ophthalmic prescriptions. We have a large selection of prescription eye drops in stock, even the most uncommon and hard to find ones. If by chance we do not have something that is prescribed, we have twice daily product delivery, so in many cases we can order your medication and have it delivered to you in 24 hours.
We carry a wide variety of eye related of over-the-counter medications and first aid supplies, as well as smaller selection of other common over-the-counter medications. The majority of our over-the-counter products are closely related to Dr. Anjema’s recommendations for patients. Most of the first aid supplies we carry are the products advised by Dr. Anjema to use in post surgery and/or procedure care. If there’s something we do not have we can order it with minimal turnaround time. We also have competitive prices compared to other local pharmacies. An example would be our Health One ASA 81 mg, our price for a bottle of 180 tablets is $5.99 plus tax compared to other pharmacies being 10 to 14 dollars more expensive.
Sterile compounding is defined as any manipulation of a sterile or nonsterile product intended to produce a sterile final product. We have a certified ISO class 7 cleanroom and ISO class 5 laminar airflow hood on site which allows us to compound sterile medications such as ophthalmic (related to the eye) and other (intravenous, intramuscular & subcutaneous) injections. Common injections include antibiotics, antifungals, pain relief and vitamins as dietary supplements.
Oral compounding has many different uses. It is a great alternative to traditional medication delivery systems. Many commercially available products can be compounded into liquid or sublingual tablets to aid with swallowing issues and increase compliance. A few conditions oral compounded medications are useful for are:
Oral compounding also includes flavouring options and dosage strength adjustments. If a unique strength is not commercially available we are able to compound the medication into a liquid solution with a yummy flavour or we offer capsules, gummies, rapid dissolving tablets, troches, lozenges and lollipops.
There are also a variety of dental compounds available, including oral pastes, gels, rinses and sprays used to treat mouth ulcers, dry mouth and dry socket.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the replacement of deficient hormones with naturally occuring hormones that the body produces, but have declined due to aging or illness. Hormone replacement therapy offers amazing benefits for menopausal and postmenopausal women as well as androgen deficiency in men. Hormone replacement therapy is also used to treat infertility, endometriosis and postpartum depression.
We have the ability to compound capsules and a variety of topical options including creams, gels, ointments and ovules. These can be prescribed by your family physician, OB/OBGYN or naturopathic doctor.
Veterinary compounding is commonly used by veterinarians when treating household pets and farm animals. Many medications are not available in the strength required or in a form making administration easy to animals. This is where compounding plays a vital role in giving veterinarians and pet parents peace of mind when giving medication. We can compound medications with pet favourite flavours such as chicken, beef, liver and tuna.
