What Is Health Coaching?

Health coaching is a patient-centric approach that aims to improve overall health and well-being, particularly for patients with chronic conditions. With health coaching, a team of professionals works closely with patients to identify their health goals, develop personalized action plans, and support them in making sustainable lifestyle changes.

Embracing Holistic Solutions

At Desert Canyon Pharmacy, our health coaching services focus on a holistic approach, where we address the whole person rather than just the symptoms of their chronic illness. Our pharmacist health coaches understand the interplay between nutrition, lifestyle, and chronic conditions, and use evidence-based strategies to educate and empower patients.

By encouraging long-term changes and using motivational interviewing techniques, we aim to improve patient outcomes, enhancing not only their physical health but also their emotional and mental well-being. Our goal is to help patients navigate the healthcare system more confidently and take active control of their health. By keeping track of various metrics, including blood pressure, heart rate, and more, we’re able to help our patience lead a more balanced and healthier life.


Why Is Health Coaching Important?

Chronic illnesses, such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and type 2 diabetes, are prevalent among many individuals. That makes it a significant public health issue, and many don’t know exactly what to do when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle in order to improve their overall health.

With health coaching services, our team can offer an evidence-based solution that empowers patients to take control of their health and improve patient outcomes in the long term. By creating an environment that encourages positive behavior and motivates patients to truly take control of their health, we can see better results in the long term–which means our patients can lead healthier lives.

Health Coaching And Its Impact On Diabetes Management

Our pharmacy is the only pharmacy in Southern Utah that is accredited by the American Diabetes Association. That means we can counsel patients on their diabetes medications and provide information regarding healthier lifestyles. The Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support (or DSMES) program is a valuable source for any diabetic patient wanting to learn more about diabetes and how to live a healthier lifestyle.

How Can A Pharmacist Help As A Health Coach?

Pharmacists are trusted healthcare professionals who play a crucial role in managing chronic conditions. By expanding their role to include health coaching, pharmacists can provide patients with personalized education on nutrition and lifestyle choices, as well as motivational interviewing techniques to support behavior change.

Travis, and his holistic approach within our independent pharmacy, represents a unique combination of pharmacist, health coach and patient advocate. By using his skills as a pharmacist, he takes a patient-centric approach to coaching that leads them to learning how to live their best lives.

The Significance Of An Individualized Approach

At Desert Canyon Pharmacy, our health coaches recognize that each patient is unique and has different needs. With a focus on personalized care, we tailor our coaching sessions to meet the specific goals and challenges of each patient. This individualized approach ensures that patients receive the support and guidance they need to make positive changes and improve their overall health.

Testimonials From Our Valued Patients

Seriously this place is amazing! I got the last of the hard to find RSV vaccines. They offered to come to our house to give my husband his when they got their shipment the next day! WHAT OTHER PHARMACY WOULD DO THAT???? I had them switch all our prescriptions from Walmart and Smith's that day! They are knowledgeable and friendly and the place is spotlessly clean! There's lots of parking and it's not crowded. (My husband liked that it's right beside an ice cream shop and across from Port of Sub).

My family and I have used other big brand pharmacies forever and never really had a great experience, so once Desert Canyon Pharmacy moved in close to our house, we made the switch and it was one of the best decisions. The staff is super friendly and they get prescriptions filled really quickly! We get a text when it’s ready and we swing by and pick up. If you’re wanting less headache when it comes to your medications, make the switch! They’re awesome! Plus, you’re supporting local business.

Awesome locally-owned pharmacy and small business. They do a tremendous job and I’m still shocked that anybody would go to a big box pharmacy these days, definitely come here instead. The drive-thru is super convenient and the owner and pharmacist Travis is really friendly and kind! 10/10.
Joshua C.
Amazing customer service! Switched to this pharmacy in February, and I will never go elsewhere. So much more accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable compared to any other pharmacy I’ve used. They are always so quick, and have the best open communication with me. They make you and your needs feel important. This pharmacy and the pharmacist/employees go above and beyond anything you’ve experienced elsewhere. Definitely 100% recommend!
Heidi C.
We decided to switch to this pharmacy because it is close to our home plus the drive-through is a bonus. I am so glad we did! I have been here twice to pick up medication for my daughters. Travis and Kylie helped me. Both were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this place!
K Kirby.
This was my first time at Desert Canyon and will be my go to pharmacy going forward. The pharmacist Camille is super nice and friendly and gave me my Covid19 booster shot. Pharmacists and pharmacies are usually too busy to visit and get to know each other. Desert Canyon is unique and you'll be glad you go there.
