“I am privileged to be a part of this University and to create a portal of entry for seniors to Pacific where we hope to help in many ways with their future healthcare,” said Dr. Daftary.
Dr. Daftary, a well-respected Stockton physician, is actively seeing patients in our Clinic. Under a collaborative practice agreement, Pharmacy faculty members and our students, under faculty supervision, now have the opportunity to participate in active patient care.
