Leaders in Pharmacy Compounding

Shortly after moving from Detroit to San Diego in 1993, brothers John and Joe Grasela established University Compounding Pharmacy (UCP). The pharmacy was founded on the idea that patients deserve compounded options when common one-size-fits-all medications don't work. Shortly after its inception, UCP became a nationwide leader in personalized compounding, providing service to patients in over 40 states. The Grasela brothers have also provided medical education to an estimated fifty thousand physicians.


Today, UCP staff operates with the same passion that fueled the Grasela brothers for the last 3 decades: leadership, service, and excellence. The pharmacy is actively engaged with tens of thousands of patients in the areas of bio-identical hormones, urologicals, and integrative medicine.
