About James Melcon

James Melcon has worked as a Pharmacist for more than two and a half decades. In that time, he has served in community pharmacies and retail settings, and with long-term care facilities and nursing homes. Throughout his career, James Melcon has seen his job as one of patient care. Even when he served as the sole pharmacist on duty when working for Harmon Drug of Emerson, New Jersey (1987 to 1990), he maintained this client-first focus, offering advice for customers needing over-the-counter medication. 


James Melcon graduated cum laude from the Long Island University College of Pharmacy in 1981 with a B.S. in Pharmacy. A registered Pharmacist, he held his first pharmacy position at Shop Rite Pharmacy in Ridgefield, New Jersey. At his second pharmacy post, with Emerson, New Jersey’s Harmon Drug, he managed to double retail prescription volume in three years. James Melcon also proved a financial boon to his next employer. While working for Shop Rite Pharmacy in North Bergen, New Jersey, he completed his tasks without the need of a technician’s assistance.


In his time with Geriscript Pharmacy (formerly PharMerica, Capstone, and Choice Premier) from 1995 to 2009, James Melcon performed pharmacy work that achieved a new depth. Here, he consulted with physicians and nurses about prescriptions and undertook the task of reviewing orders to verify appropriateness and avoid allergies, medication interactions, and insurance issues for patients. He also learned to prepare and check IV medications and assisted with inventory orders.


James Melcon worked most recently with long-term care provider Pharmscript Pharmacy in Mountainside, New Jersey. Because the facility serves the nursing home industry, James Melcon consulted regularly with nurses and doctors to ensure the optimization of patients’ medications and health. A certified Consultant Pharmacist and member of the New Jersey Pharmacists Association, James Melcon currently lives in Hawthorne, New Jersey, and supports the New York Yankees.
