Serving the Jacksonville community since 1967, the Weise family of healthcare practioners has dedicated their business to serving physicians and patients. The formula is simple; custom medication combined with patient education and superior service are the keys to maintaining a thriving business.

At eight years old, Gilbert Weise, Sr. was working in his father, Dr. Emil Weise's labratory on 10 West Duval Street in Jacksonville. Dr. Weise was a Naturopathic Physician and Clinical Nutritionist who specialized in homeopathic medicine. His wife, Ruth Weise, was a nutritionist who imparted the lifelong benefits of healthy eating and living to her son, Gilbert.

Gill Weise, Sr. graduated high school from Robert E. Lee in 1952 and went on to earn his Bachelor Degree in Psychologt from the University of Virginia in 1958. In 1960, he earned his Pharmacy Degree from the Univeristy of Florida.

The Ortega Medical Arts Building, home of Weise Prescription Shop and Natural Food Shoppe, opened its doors on June 1, 1967. The building also housed Reinold Weise's surgery practice and Edmund Weise's pediatric practice. In 1967, JoHelen Weise began work at Weise Prescription Shop after earning her pharmacy degree from the University of Florida in 1959.

Today, the art and science of compounding continues. Gill Weise, Sr. works in the Natural Food Shoppe dispensing time-honored natural remedies. JoHelen Weise maintains the traditional pharmacy aspect of the business, and their son, Gilbert Weise, Jr. manages the contemporary compounding branch. Gilbert, Jr. graduated in 1987 from the University of Florida with his Bachelor Degree in Pharmacy.

The professionals at Weise Prescription Shop and Natural Food Shoppe distinguish themselves with their one-on-one approach to healthcare. Unlike most pharmacies that dispense drugs and dosage forms that treat every patient's symptoms similarly, Weise Prescription Shop treats the individual.

Weise offers a variety of services and options. Everything from compounding prescriptions to homeopathy to massage therapy. We understand that not all patients respond to traditional therapies and we welcome the challange of working with special patient needs.
