Sanjiv Bhardwaj is a pharmacy technician who has been on the AXIS team since July 2018. When asked why Sanjiv was selected as this month’s recipient, Dave Doane, AXIS Pharmacy CEO, and Richard Molitor, R. Ph. “Pharmacist-in-Charge” had these kind words to share:
“Sanjiv, in the time he’s been here, has demonstrated enormous capability in the procurement of just about anything. If it exists, he’ll find it. It’s almost uncanny and sort of like the Radar O’Reilly character in M.A.S.H. His professionalism and people skills are second to none. It’s a true pleasure to have him here with us. He is a great family man outside of work, he beams when he talks about his kids, I love that. He also makes the best Samosas (click the link for the recipe), they are a hit at our potlucks!”
We asked Sanjiv a few questions about his job and life outside of work.
