  • Our Pharmacists

    Chris and Walter!

    Chris Wong

    PharmD, BCGP (geriatric specialist)

     

    My name is Chris Wong and I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2015. I started off my practice in the hospital setting working at various hospitals including Belleville General Hospital, Mackenzie Health Hospital and North York General Hospital. I then developed a strong clinical interest towards geriatric medicine which naturally propelled me to learning more about geriatric pharmacy and receiving my Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist certification in 2018.

     

    In August of 2018, I decided to step down from full-time hospital pharmacy work to part-time and became the co-owner of Victoria Park Pharmacy. I saw a need to help educate patients in the community so that I can hopefully prevent some of these patients from being admitted to the hospital in the future. Currently, I practice at both North York General Hospital and Victoria Park Pharmacy.

     

    I believe in empowering patients through education to take control of their own health. I enjoy providing education to patients in various avenues such as public presentations, medication reviews/consultations, or even through a simple telephone conversation. It is true that the profession of pharmacy is always changing, but at Victoria Park Pharmacy, our philosophy of patients come first will always be the foundation. I look forward to meeting you and making a difference for your health care.

     

    Walter Lum

    B. Sc. Pharm, CDE (diabetes specialist)

     

    My name is Walter Lum. I am a pharmacist who graduated in 1989 at the University of Toronto. I worked as an intern and staff pharmacist for a Guardian pharmacy during the 1st year after I graduated. After that, in 1990, I worked as a full- time staff pharmacist for Shoppers Drug Mart in North York. Then in 1993, I relocated to another Shoppers Drug Mart in Scarborough, continuing as a full-time staff pharmacist.

     

    In 2004, I became the pharmacy manager of the same Shoppers Drug Mart. In 2006, after taking a few management courses, I became an associate/owner for another Shoppers Drug Mart located in Scarborough. In 2008, the Shoppers Drug Mart that I was an associate/owner of , was renovated to become an 18,000 square feet large format store offering not only a pharmacy but an expanded cosmetics section, larger front store, a photolab and an extensive food section. In December of 2010, I stepped down as the associate /owner of the Shoppers Drug Mart and became the co-owner of Victoria Park Pharmacy. I have worked all of my professional career in the retail pharmacy environment and enjoy the relationships with customers and the challenges of this environment. During my tenure in Shoppers Drug Mart, I have had the wonderful opportunity to be a preceptor to several pharmacy students, interns and international pharmacy graduates.

     

    I enjoy learning new things and look forward in participating in the expanded scope of practice that the profession of pharmacy is currently undergoing. In June of 2012, I have become a certified diabetes educator and received certification from the Canadian Diabetes Educator Certification Board. This will help me to better serve our diabetes customers that we have in our store.
