BIO, NEWS, AND MORE!
Stanley has forged his own unique practice over the past 25 years as a pharmacist in both New York & Los Angeles. In 2013 he opened the world’s first wellness bar & pharmaceutical practice as Stanley’s Pharmacy. Over the years he has created an oasis for New Yorkers in the know, and become a cultural icon in the downtown scene.
Born in the Bronx to newly emigrated parents from Kerala, India, he was introduced to Ayurvedic medicine at a nascent age. Later in the early 90’s he became an avid musician, club kid, & music producer; all the while delving into various alternative health traditions. He began synthesizing this knowledge with his education while attending the Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy in Downtown Brooklyn, graduating in 1995.
After decades of professional experience he has developed the discernment for when to use or eschew plant-based or prescription medicine to benefit the health of each individual patient.
