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."

Get The Secrets to Savings
I would like to express my deepest appreciation for the time and information GeriatRx imparted on us regarding our medical and drug concerns. My husband and I are so grateful to be a part of the GeriatRx community and, best of all, GeriatRx has helped us save over $2,160 over 2 years! Your ability to focus precisely into how we could reduce our medication burdens lowered our costs financially and built a unique relationship with a geriatric pharmacist and our general doctor! There is no way you can get this at your regular pharmacy so thank you for all that you do!

GeriatRx performed a Complete Medication Review and researched the dosing, efficacy, and appropriateness of my medications. GeriatRx discussed their findings with my doctor who agreed that some medical changes would be of benefit! Not only did GeriatRx improve my medication regimen, but they also lowered my medicine costs and pill burden. I am spreading the word of GeriatRx to several of my colleagues, family members, and friends, recommending they have them review your medicine needs. I trust having my own personal pharmacist with GeriatRx. Thank you for your knowledge and easing my anxieties about my medication.

GeriatRx helped with treating heartburn I’ve been struggling to manage for years. After reviewing my herbal medications and prescriptions, GeriatRx identified the drugs that contributed to my acid reflux and helped me find the right treatment for me at an affordable price. They even provided a coupon that saved me close to $800 over a year. Dr. DeLon was so compassionate and attentive that I’ve never felt so confident in understanding how my medications work and how they affect my body. I felt 100% better after he explained my drug-herbal interactions and developed a Medication Plan for my provider. I would encourage anyone to speak to him regarding any medication and I can’t thank GeriatRx enough for everything!
