After graduating from the University of Auckand in 2005, he did his internship in Fairfield Pharmacy and carried on working in Hamilton gaining experience and in 2013 took up a full time pharmacist position at Northcare Pukete Pharmacy. In 2016 Stuart Bayes decided to go into retirement and handed over the business to Fhazeel. Fhazeel is passionate about pharmacy and cares about the health and wellbeing of his clients. He sets very high standards for his staff to perform to the best of their ability and provide the best customer service. Since taking over the pharmacy Northcare Pukete Phamacy has come a long way under his leadership. From text repeat reminders to a fully operational online pharmacy website, we have the future of pharmacy covered. And just recently he has again invested into getting robotics installed. While the robots do the dispensing, Fhazeel wants his pharmacists and staff talking and helping people understand their medicines and medical conditions.
