About Harry Xidias, RPh
Harry is a graduate of Long Island University Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and has worked as a licensed Pharmacist in New York City since 1992.
Harry began his early career at Genovese Pharmacy (now part of Rite Aid Pharmacy) in Queens, NY and quickly moved to Fair Pharmacy an independent in the Bronx.
At Fair Pharmacy, Harry became the lead Pharmacist working closely with local physicians to pioneer and innovate in the emerging field of HIV/AIDS treatment, over time evolving Fair Pharmacy into one of the first HIV Specialty Pharmacies in NYC.
As Fair Pharmacy was about to be acquired by chain pharmacy BioScrip in 2004, Harry moved to another independent pharmacy in the Bronx, Congress Pharmacy.
Through years of experience and continuing education, Harry has expanded his Specialty Pharmacy expertise from a focus on HIV-AIDS treatment to include asthma management, hepatitis and oncology treatment.
In 2006, Harry fulfilled his dream of opening his own independent pharmacy in Astoria, NY, providing both community pharmacy and Specialty Pharmacy services to all five boroughs of New York City through free delivery service. Due to recent acquisitions of independent pharmacies by chains like Walgreens, many former patients and provider colleagues have searched for Harry and become patients, or referred patients to him, once again at City View Pharmacy!
Harry is a member of the Astoria Blue Feather Head Start Health Advisory Committee and the Western Queens Cancer Action Council. In 2013, Harry was honored to be appointed to the faculty of the Long Island University Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy as a Community Pharmacy Preceptor. After 20+ years in the field of pharmacy, Harry remains passionate about his work and, as an independent pharmacy owner, seeks to innovate services to meet patient and provider needs to ensure the best possible outcomes for his patients.
