The Business: As Marshalltown's newest pharmacy, NuCara North is making a statement. It's objective is to be one of the leading pharmacies and home medical providers in the area, according to manager Pamela Wong. "Our patients are the cornerstone of the business," said Wong. "Consequently, our staff works to provide patients with the best products and services. NuCara offers a best price guarantee - the best price, best service and best value, guaranteed." In addition to being a full-service retail pharmacy, NuCara specializes in prescription compounding, home medical equipment, diabetic shoes, daily living aids, ostomy and wound care, home oxygen and respiratory services, after-breast surgery products, IV services, medication packaging, and more.
The New Image Boutique offers products and services to women with post-breast surgery needs. "Rachel, our on-site home medical specialist, is dedicated to helping women feel more confident about their appearance," said Wong. "We can help women find the prosthetics, special clothing, and accessories they need after breast surgery. Breast forms, equalizer forms, mastectomy bras, camisoles, swimwear, hats, wigs, turbans and compression and therapy products are offered at NuCara. We also offer in-home fittings for home-bound patients."
Unique Features: "We believe patients will find it convenient to fill their prescriptions at our innovative two floor pharmacy inside McFarland Clinic," said Wong. "We think it's going to be a great benefit to patients in winter, as they can visit their healthcare provider and then visit NuCara. As we develop closer relationships with medical providers here, it will provide us the opportunity to work together to better patient outcomes And we offer free delivery in the Marshalltown area."
Why Central Iowa:? "NuCara is based in Conrad and continues to make significant investments in Central Iowa," said Wong. "In May, we opened NuCara South Pharmacy at McFarland's Southside Clinic in May. Central Iowans will see that our expertise in the blend of services we provide is what makes us unique, but the way we provide them is what makes us exceptional. We encourage everyone to stop by and get acquainted at our Sept. 28 grand opening."
