Richard DeKany, R.Ph.
Registered Pharmacist

Richard DeKany is a graduate of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and a licensed South Carolina pharmacist. Formerly owner of Pinecliff Pharmacy, West Milford, N.J. and president of Total Care Medical Systems, Mr. DeKany consults in the usage and interaction of medications.

Standing for long periods of time without moving, during my long career as a retail pharmacist, resulted in an unfortunate consequence for me – insufficient blood circulation in my lower extremities. For many years I have been treated for hypertension and poor peripheral circulation and even with medication and the use of support stockings, I experienced tired legs and my condition did not improve. I decided to give Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy a try.



My results were dramatic. I refer to it as "synergism" or "one plus one equals three". The addition of HBOT to my treatment protocol, along with my usual medications, helped to decrease my blood pressure and my tired legs felt rejuvenated. Overall, my feelings of general well-being were greatly improved and I am able to enjoy golf again. The addition of HBOT to my treatment regime added up to a correct answer to my problems.
