A History in Compounding
UCP was established in 1993 by brothers John and Joe Grasela, after moving from Detroit to San Diego. The pharmacy was founded on the idea that patients deserve personalized medicine when common commercial medications aren't adequate. From the beginning, UCP has been a nation-wide leader in prescription compounding and physician education. The Grasela brothers have actively participated in providing medical education to an estimated 50,000 physicians in the area of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
The pharmacy is still actively engaged across the country in physician education patient care. In the last 25 years, pharmacists at UCP have worked with patients and physicians in the areas of hormone therapy, urology, ophthalmology, dermatology, and integrative medicine.
