Meet Rick Pauley

Rick Pauley, pharmacist and owner of Five Star Compounding Pharmacy, has extensive experience developing compounded pharmaceuticals for people and animals.

A native Iowan who grew up on a farm in the northwestern part of the state, Rick takes pride in his ability to research and find solutions to the medication challenges experienced by his customers - both patients and their health care clinicians.

Rick earned BS and MS degrees in Animal Science from Iowa State University and a BS degree in Pharmacy from Drake University. He has 25 years of experience in the field. Prior to opening Five Star, he worked in Des Moines-area hospital and retail pharmacies before becoming exclusively a compounding pharmacist.

Rick belongs to the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) and adheres to the IACP's Code of Ethics, developed to maintain the highest standard of professional conduct and guide pharmacists in their relations with patients, other health professionals, and society.

Rick, and his wife, Ann, have four children.
