Bill Kalman was born in Rock Island, IL and grew up in a small town south of Moline called Orion. Bill has been a pharmacist in the Peoria area since his graduation in 1990. Bill's father is also a pharmacist who owned an independent pharmacy in Orion for almost 20 years! Bill was inspired to become a pharmacist from watching the close personal care his father gave to each individual patient. Bill has followed that model every day to give personalized compassionate care to each of his patients to solve health problems by looking at whole picture instead of just treating the symptoms. Bill will work with you and your health care provider to individualize your treatment to heal as naturally as possible.
