We want to take a moment to introduce you to our newest pharmacist, Justin Levesque. He will be working the pharmacy bench alongside Meredith, Drew, and Joe.
Justin is a 2014 PharmD graduate from the University of New England. He also holds an MBA and MS in Manufacturing Systems from the University of Southern Maine and is a 2004 graduate of Bates College in Lewiston. His additional clinical certifications include the Certified Specialty Pharmacist (CSP) designation from the Certified Specialty Pharmacy Board and the HIV Pharmacist credential from the American Academy of HIV Medicine.
Prior to coming to Coastal, Justin was a Clinical Specialty Pharmacist for over eight years. During this time he led the infectious disease department focusing on treatments for HIV and hepatitis C for patients in Maine, throughout New England, and beyond. Justin also contributed to clinical work and patient education in inflammatory rheumatic conditions, gastroenterological conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and transplant therapies. He also has experience providing clinical consultations and patient education in in-vitro fertilization medication protocols.
He considers customer service a personal touchstone and is always looking to provide the best clinical solution suiting the patient and provider. Justin has experience partnering with clinics throughout Maine and New Hampshire to provide high-touch therapy solutions, including partnering with the Greater Portland Health Clinics, the Dartmouth Hitchcock System, MaineHealth specialty clinics, and various private specialists throughout the region. He is a Portland native and avid boater with his daughter and wife Eileen.
If you’ve already had the pleasure of speaking with Justin, you probably quickly realized that he’s a perfect addition to the Coastal team. We are incredibly happy to have him!
