ABOUT DR. PAM GUMBS
Dr. Pam Gumbs is the owner and CEO of United Pharmacy in Berkeley, California. Affectionately known as “Dr. Pam” by her peers and patients, and easily recognized by her New England accent, she has been a pillar of her community for more than three decades.

United Pharmacy’s experienced medical staff use pre-existing records to ensure that each patient receives a customized treatment plan, targeted to their specific needs.
“I often liken the world of pharmacy to the term ‘cutless surgery,’” said Dr. Pam. “Whom does the community patient come to regarding the correction of a physical or psychological occurrence but the pharmacist, who through their knowledge of clinical pharmacy can offer the proper referral or medication to correct these things without actually entering the amazing human body.”
As an extremely involved member of her community, Dr. Pam is the consultant pharmacist for the city of Berkeley, and she provides community service for Alameda County regarding substance abuse and educating youth. She is affiliated with a number of other associations including the Christian Pharmacists Fellowship International, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, California Pharmacists Association, and the National Association of Community Pharmacists.
