I am a board-certified ambulatory care pharmacist with professional interests in mental health, cardiovascular health, diabetes, geriatrics, and medication experience of under-served patient populations.
Hometown: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Practice Philosophy: I work with your providers, educate about medications and conditions, and adjust medications to maximize their effect. I will take action to correct drug therapy problems and follow up to ensure a resolution. I combine clinical evidence and personal preference with the goal of empowering people to make informed decisions about their medications and about their health.
If I wasn't a provider, I would be a: professional hiking guide with a small garden shop as my side business.
The best part of my work is: seeing patients achieve their goals. Knowing that medications serve purposes for a patient’s health, it is gratifying to see their health improve. Also, learning the medication story of patients inspires me to find a way to connect with patients individually and to meet their personal medication needs.
I became a pharmacist because: there are so many different medications and how they help patients is complicated. Working with patients to help them live healthier lives, and assuring their medicines are working and safe, brings me joy.
Something I have learned from my patients is: that everyone has their own medication story and this narrative is critical in helping patients achieve healthcare goals.
What is the best thing you've done for your health? Go for a walk every day.
What patients are saying about Jill Konstantinides:
"Jill provided wonderful care for my mother. She listened patiently and provided recommendations in a way that were easy for my mom to understand and follow. She brings compassion and joy to her work."
"Jill quite honestly saved my life. My meds were all doing their job but their side effects and interactions made me less functional than the disease they were treating. Doctors want to fix a problem, Jill is the first to advocate for my overall well being WITHOUT making me feel ungrateful or telling me I had to accept dangerous side effects. I can never thank her enough!"
