Claire Wheeler Love R.Ph.
Owner/ Pharmacist
Claire is a 1993 graduate of the University of Kentucky College Of Pharmacy, and a second generation pharmacist. She worked at Kmart Pharmacy for 5 years before joining the family business, Wheeler Pharmacy, established in 1958 by Claire’s father, Buddy Wheeler. At Wheeler’s, Claire was the pharmacy manager and was responsible for developing many of the clinical patient care programs still in operation today. She invested much of her time in the compounding department and over the years developed a passion for this traditional form of pharmacy practice. In October 2012, she opened Wheeler’s Custom Compounding directly across the street from Wheeler Pharmacy in order to meet the needs of a growing population of patients who rely on compounded medications.

Claire is a proud member of PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America), IACP (International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists), Kentucky Pharmacists Association, and the Bluegrass Pharmacists Association. She is also a Community Faculty Member for the UK College of Pharmacy in which she trains a post graduate pharmacist resident in independent community pharmacy management and patient care programs. In addition, she is a preceptor for pharmacy students of several universities including UK, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, South University College of Pharmacy, and Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) College of Pharmacy. In her spare time, Claire enjoys musical theater, summer days at the lake, and spending time with her 2 teenage sons.

All compounded medications are individually formulated to meet the specific health care needs of patients, human or animal. To determine these needs, a close relationship between patient, prescriber, and pharmacist is crucial. We work closely with prescribers to find solutions to patients’ individual health care challenges.

For example, many patients are allergic to commonly used fillers, dyes, binders and other additives that are a part of mass-produced medications. In addition, many medications are available only in limited strengths and dosages. Working with physicians and veterinarians, we continually provide solutions to medication dosing problems meeting patients’ needs and providing improved quality of life.
