About Us

Dorchester I.D.A Pharmacy will help you take control of your health through THE SUNSHINE WAY, an ongoing assessment with your pharmacist designed around your specific health goals. It’s easy, just tell us your health goals, so we can take a “baseline” of your current health statistics. We create and track a personal plan based on where you should be to improve your health through meaningful lifestyle changes. We’ll even work with your doctor to try to reduce the number of prescriptions you’re taking.

Sam is a pharmacist from the graduating class of 1986, where he has had the pleasure of serving his communities abroad for 17 years. In 2005, Sam started his career in Canada, where he was the pharmacist in a Loblaws branch in Ancaster, ON. Taking on more of a leadership role, he served as the pharmacy manager two years later at a Metro store in Hamilton. Currently, Sam takes joy in being the manager at Dorchester IDA since 2017.    

Sam understands the busy nature of people’s day-to-day lives, but he makes it his goal to go beyond these impersonal interactions and form friendships with his patients.  He recognises the need for patients to feel a sense of comfort and warmth from their healthcare providers and as such, he welcomes everyone with a smile. 

At Dorchester pharmacy, Sam ensures every patient is treated as a top priority, where him and his wonderful team aim to help them achieve their health and wellness targets.

Jocelyn grew up in Dorchester surrounded by a kind-hearted and compassionate community. She spent six years volunteering at the Junior Optimist Club planning local events for youths around town, with two years of presidency. 

Jocelyn has been with IDA Pharmacy since 2015 and is pursuing her passion to become a certified Registered Technician in the pharmaceutical industry.  She enjoys seeing a smile on everyone’s face as they walk in the store.
