About Us

Laura Gould, RPh

Laura Gould, RPh, managed the pharmacy at Bay Medical Center for many years until the hospital decided to close the facility. Laura knew her patients by name. She knew their stories, she knew their health histories, and she knew she wanted to continue serving them.

She saw the closing of the pharmacy as an opportunity to fulfill her lifelong dream of owning her own pharmacy. She met with a group of independent pharmacy owners, and, with their support, opened Rx Express Pharmacy of Panama City in September 2013. Laura became certified in Compounding by Medisca in 2013 and made compounding a facet of her new business.

Laura, Rx Express Pharmacy co-owner Scott Boatright and their team of techs and associates specialize in fast service and friendliness. The pharmacy offers great pricing, special orders, limited delivery, retail products and compounding.
