Welcome to Functional Pharmacy, where we are putting the function back into pharmacy.



Robert Kress, RPh, graduated from Temple University School of Pharmacy in Philadelphia PA in 1994. After becoming disenchanted with chemical dominant based medical system, Robert took his passion for nutrition and became board certified in clinical nutrition through the Clinical Nutrition Certification Board, as well as trained as a compounding pharmacist through the Professional Compounding Centers of America.

During this time, he opened his own compounding and nutritional clinic, which blossomed into a complete anti-aging clinic housing other integrative practitioners. Robert became a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, certified in Quantum Reflex Analysis, a practice of kinesiology, as well as have trained and certified in other modalities such as Reiki and auricular acupuncture, a primal health coach, a licensed yoga instructor, and most recently a certified @movnat instructor.

Currently, Robert consults with both with patients to enhance their health through lifestyle medicine as well other practitioners to help integrate, promote and implement natural medicine in their practices. Robert also provides regular educational Wellness Workshops and writes regularly on the topic of lifestyle medicine and integrative care.

Robert believes as pharmacists, we are offered the perfect opportunity to integrate natural medicine into our practices, as its core to the history of pharmacy. Patients are looking for natural solutions for their health, while practitioners are looking towards integrative care to help solve their clients problems and enhance their practices.

This is my passion...


I believe as pharmacists the experiment of chemical only medicine has run its course, patients are looking for natural solutions for their health, practitioners are looking towards natural and integrative care to differentiate the practices- it’s time to get back to our roots of an integrated model of pharmacy.

My vision is to create a platform that empowers pharmacists, patients, pharmacy owners, staff and people like you…


The fact is that many pharmacists fall into the comfort that kills, and are slow to act until its too late. It seems they become conditioned to accept less; less reimbursements, less respect, and less peace of mind- I don’t believe it has to be this way.

And we are in changing times, the old way has run its course, the future is in integrative medicine and as pharmacist this presents an enormous opportunity for all of us.
