About Dr. DeLon M. Canterbury, PharmD
Dr. DeLon Canterbury, is a Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist who focuses on the special needs of older patients who may have concurrent illnesses taking multiple medications.
"His extensive background ranges from Community Pharmacy, Specialty Pharmacy, to Senior Care Consulting, while also being trained as a Medicare and Medicaid specialist through the Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP). He was inspired to pursue this calling, because of his late grandmother who passed from complications of Dementia, where a medication had been incorrectly prescribed leading to her health declining rapidly. This fatal medication error could have been avoided had a trained Geriatric Pharmacist paid close enough attention to her medication history. He never want any more patients of his or loved ones to endure what my family had to because of something preventable, which is why he founded GeriatRx."
