Hi I'm Joseph Shorez, the owner of Santee Community Pharmacy.  

I started out in my early years in pharmaceutical sales. This was rewarding as I quickly rose to the top. Not because I was that great at sales, because really I was not. It's because, I have a deep conviction to always do business (and life) with the highest level of integrity.

When I came across the opportunity to own a pharmacy, the decision was easy! I now had the chance to help even more people. I now have the pleasure to meet the end user, you! Now the sales have a name, a face and a person behind it. 

The Golden Rule, "treat people the way you want to be treated"

This is the ultimate rule to the way of life. This is a key that myself and staff ultimately utilize each and every day. As being part of the community the staff here at Santee Community Pharmacy strive by this rule each and every day.

Myself and our staff are committed to helping customers get the medication they need to stay healthy at the lowest cost to them possible. We work really hard to make sure we are aware of any discounts, searching out the lowest cost for each prescription. This is the personal touch we can offer being a local community pharmacy.
