Changing Lives

Natural relief for menopausal symptoms may be found at South River. We work with you and your practitioner to find the right course of treatment just for you. Many women find relief with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, which is customized for each patient. The key word is “customized”. You may have been tolerating symptoms for a long time and are ready for some relief. From testing, to evaluation and recommendation, to preparing your prescription, we want your treatment to be exactly right for you. We use our knowledge and expertise to evaluate lab results and patient health assessments, then recommend the appropriate prescription dosage to get you feeling good again!

Step 1: Lab Tests: Levels for the 4 sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA-S) should be tested. You can have this done through a blood test ordered by your practitioner (often covered under insurance), or via a saliva test available at South River. Saliva test kits can be purchased at either store or online. Just take the kit home and complete it, seal the box and drop in any UPS box. Results are sent to South River and we will notify you once they are received.

Step 2: Personal Consultation: Once your lab results are in, you will be able to meet with one of our Pharmacists to review your detailed health history and the results. This 1-hour interactive session includes discussion of your symptoms, any other health issues, and lifestyle. The Consultant will use this information to recommend a personalized protocol and if appropriate, recommend a compounded prescription to your practitioner for approval. And, you may discuss any appropriate diet or lifestyle changes.

Step 3: Compounded Prescription: Our pharmacy staff carefully prepares each prescription according to exact standards. Your prescription will be ready for you approximately 1 business day after receiving approval from your practitioner. The pharmacist will answer any questions you have about the prescription and how you should take it.

Step 4: Follow-up: We want to make sure you are doing well, are comfortable with your prescription, and are seeing results. Our Patient Care Coordinator, Pharmacy, and Sales Staffs are here to answer your questions. As your symptoms subside and you experience changes, it may be necessary to adjust your prescription. A 30-minute consultation to evaluate follow-up hormone testing and current symptoms will indicate what changes to make.

Happy Customers


I was home with Shingles....in pain. I called the pharmacy and she discussed all of the products with me. I purchased them over the phone and then had a friend pick them up for me! They were so nice and helpful!!

With the growth of mail order and chain pharmacies this is one of the few places where you really can find someone to discuss your needs. AND, for no reason, this location has a United States Postal Service substation, that is staffed by the SRC Pharmacy folks. No long lines (the most I've ever encountered is one person ahead of me) like most post offices but you can send Certified mail, packages, buy stamps, just like in the grown up post offices.

Great customer service. Everyone was sweet over the phone, they had the veterinary medications I needed on hand, and were able to get the prescription together quickly. Spent most of the previous day trying other pharmacies with no luck and met with very rude personnel - I was very relieved when I found this one!
