Christine Larsen Kroger, BCACP, PharmD
- Ambulatory care pharmacy
- Medication safety
I am a pharmacist with professional interests in patient education, geriatrics, pharmacogenomics and medication safety.
Practice philosophy: Our Pharmacist Practitioners work with your providers, educate about medications and conditions, and adjust medications to maximize their effect. We take action to correct drug therapy problems and follow up to ensure a resolution. We combine clinical evidence and personal preference with the goal of empowering people to make informed decisions about their medications and about their health.
Something I have learned from my patients is: The goal of medication treatment is to take control of our health so that we can live and enjoy each day to its fullest.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Each medication problem has its own creative solution. Sometimes simple changes can make a big difference.
My personal health goal is: My personal health goal is cancer prevention through healthy eating.
What is the best thing you’ve done for your health or the best health advice you’ve received? I have often struggled to get regular exercise and physical activity. Doing Pilates is the first exercise routine that has worked for me.
What patients are saying about Christine Larsen Kroger:
"Christine was so thorough and smart. I feel so confident in managing my many meds. She followed up a few weeks later to see how I was doing with the changes. I have recommended her to several friends. She is a powerful asset to our Allina experience!"
"I really appreciated Christine's patience and expertise during our detailed Med Review. She empowered me with additional knowledge regarding my diabetic regiment and further gave me other options that I can further discuss with my provider to better optimize my diabetes management! I wish I had this service with a pharmacist years ago! Thank you Christine for making me feel safe & confident with my medications regiment. You rock!"
