Roy, South Carolina Medical

RPP saved my life on more than one occasion, and the Board of Pharmacy allowed me to regain my life. I now have custody of my daughter, whom I was not allowed to see seven years ago, and I am working as a pharmacist doing what I love to do, helping people. Thank you RPP for helping all the healthcare professionals.
