Tina Huynh, Rph, ABAAHP,
Our Pharmacy Manager, Tina Huynh, is a graduate from the University Of North Carolina School Of Pharmacy in 1990. Tina worked at the Pharmacy Benefit Management Patient Counseling line and served as the Patient Educator for the pharmaceutical company Eli Lily before working at Allen Family Drug. Being a pharmacist at Allen Family Drug, Tina has been to a lot of seminars and educational courses such as functional medicine and a lot more. She has over 10 years of experience in balancing women hormones with bio-identical hormone replacement and holds a diplomate certification from The American Board of Anti-Aging Health Practitioners (ABAAHP, www.a4m.com).
When asked about her take on compounding, Tina states, “Custom medications avoids the problems created by the philosophy of ‘one size fits all’, which is common in a large number of manufactured products. The expertise and experience of our compounding pharmacists make all the difference.”
It is her passion and commitment to develop a strong team of knowledgeable and caring staff, as well as to help her patients feel better every day. Tina is happily married to Dr. D.T. Huynh. They have two wonderful daughters, Valerie and Carolyn.
David Young, PharmD,
Pharmacist in Charge
David was born and raised in the small town of Canadian, Texas, where he grew up on his family’s ranch. Here he learned the value of hard work and the importance of community. He had his first pharmacy job there at the only pharmacy in town, an independently run store where the focus was on relationships with the patients and doctors of the town and not on the volume of prescriptions. From here he went on to get his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Houston. Out of school David started working for a chain grocery store where he gained valuable experience as a pharmacist and a manager. When the opportunity to join Allen Family Drug came up, David jumped at the chance to get back into an independently operated pharmacy. At AFD, he knew that he would have the opportunity to help patients improve their lives by other ways outside of traditional medicine.
David is certified in pharmaceutical compounding, having completed the Basic, Advanced, and C3 courses through PCCA. He is also certified in Immunization delivery as well as Patient Centered Diabetes Care. He is continuing to expand on his knowledge of compounding and nutritional medicine, and AFD will continue to evolve with advances in all different types of medicine in order to better take care of our patients. David lives in McKinney with his wife, Wani, and their 3 dogs Zoe, Lucy, and Rocket, so he also has a passion for taking care of our patients’ pets. David, along with the rest of the staff, will do their best to come up with special ways to make sure your furry friends are able to get the medication they need in order to enjoy happy and healthy lives.
