Sahar Bitton - PharmacistHello, I’m Sahar Saviss, a dedicated and compassionate pharmacist with 17 years of experience in the field. I have a strong passion for improving patient health outcomes through accurate medication dispensing and personalized pharmaceutical care.

My journey in pharmacy began with a Doctorate of Pharmacy degree in 2006 from the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy.  Since then, I have worked in various healthcare settings, including independent and chain community pharmacies, hospitals, and compounding facilities. This diverse experience has allowed me to develop a comprehensive understanding of different aspects of pharmacy practice.  I started out as a Pharmacy Intern at CVS/Pharmacy in 2003, setting up their original twenty CVS stores in Southern California, contributing to software system training for pharmacy technicians and pharmacists. In 2006, I accepted a full-time Pharmacist position at CVS where I worked till 2011.  

In 2011, I took a brief hiatus from the pharmacy world to raise a family.  However, my passion for pharmacy never wavered, and I returned to the field on a part-time basis at a local community pharmacy called Rancho Park Compounding Pharmacy. This experience provided me with a unique opportunity to expand my knowledge and skills in compounding, a specialized area of pharmacy practice.  I trained at PCCA headquarter in Texas on aseptic sterile compound technique, which I used daily at Rancho Park Pharmacy. I quickly moved from a part-time retail pharmacist position to a sterile compounding one, helping prepare and check compounded eye preparations and injectables.  I gained an understanding  of men’s health, focusing on sexual function, hormone replacement therapy, and hair loss treatments.

As a pharmacist, my primary goal is to ensure the safe and effective use of medications by patients. I am well-versed in medication therapy management, drug interactions, dosage adjustments, and counseling patients on proper medication usage. I believe in building strong relationships with my patients, actively listening to their concerns, and providing them with relevant information to promote adherence and optimal health outcomes. I am a people person, I love the daily interactions with my patients and look forward to going into the pharmacy everyday.

Throughout my career, I have maintained a commitment to staying informed about the latest advancements in pharmacy. I regularly attend continuing education programs, conferences, participate in professional organizations, and keep abreast of emerging trends and technologies in the field. I stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in pharmacy practice and pharmacotherapy. This enables me to deliver evidence-based and personalized pharmaceutical care to each patient I serve.

Apart from my role in direct patient care, I am also passionate about promoting health and wellness within the community. I have conducted medication education sessions, health screenings, and public awareness campaigns to enhance medication safety and improve health literacy.

After a decade of part-time dedication, I took a significant leap into ownership in April 2022, partnering with Payam Shabboui at Wilshire Le Doux Medical Pharmacy.   We successfully expanded many services to the community, embracing a new chapter in pharmacy management.

Outside of my professional life, I enjoy staying active with hobbies such as hiking, exercising, and spending time with my three beautiful daughters. These activities help me maintain a well-rounded perspective and enhance my ability to connect with others.

I am excited to be part of the healthcare team and contribute to improving the overall well-being of our patients. If you have any questions or need assistance regarding your medications or health concerns, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to greeting our new ELEVATE PHARMACY patients and providing the same excellent service and care we provided at our old location while helping you on your journey towards better health. If I can be of service in any way, please feel free to contact me at
