More About Wellness Rx Natural Pharmacy

Wellness Rx provides a new way to work within our ever-changing healthcare system to provide a more holistic approach to what a home-town pharmacy can be.  With wellness services integrated into the traditional pharmacy model, our customers get a more "patient-centered" experience designed to promote wellness, rather than continue the cycle of medicating.  We want to be part of your overall plan toward better health.

Wellness Rx Products made in House, Wellness Screenings and Services, Traditional Pharmacy Services, and Natural Health Products.

Clinical Services: Blood Pressure Readings, Flu Shots, Immunizations, Consultations, Custom Blending, COVID-19 Vaccines and Testing, and so much more!

Our Team

Edward Ullmann, R.PH., MPA

Owner and Pharmacy Manager of Wellness Rx, LLC.

Ed Ullmann holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Services, an MPA degree from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University, and was a National HMO Fellow at Georgetown Medical School, Washington D.C.

Mr. Ullmann is a member of the President’s Advisory Council at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Services, and he serves as an Adjunct Experiential Faculty member for the school. He has developed over thirty (30) start-up companies and, for sixteen (16) years, served as a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) founder and CEO at Wellcare. He has also been a Pharmacy District Manager, a County Mental Health Director, a County Legislator, and was the owner/operator of the world-renowned Warm Mineral Springs in Florida.

Mr. Ullmann was named the "1994 Health Care Entrepreneur of the Year in Southern New England" by Inc. Magazine and received the CHIP Visionary Award from Sarasota County, Florida, in 2007. During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ullmann received national acclaim as a "Faces of Pharmacy" Award winner by Pharmacy Times.

Ullmann, a dedicated and visionary pharmacist and scientist, is currently the Chief Executive Officer and Pharmacy Manager at Wellness Rx in Tannersville, NY. After expanding his professional strengths into other areas of wellness management, Ullmann was approached several years ago by the mountaintop region's business leaders to create a much-needed pharmacy and healthcare location. He accepted this challenge to bring his vision, knowledge, and wisdom to an area underserved by the pharmacy and wellness industry. He has returned to his pharmacy roots and supports the health needs of the mountaintop region of the Catskill Mountains.

Since then, he has created and built Wellness Rx Pharmacy into a trusted member of his rural community, where health decisions are often needed to be made immediately. What sets Ed apart is his dedication to blending traditional pharmacy with natural medicine. In April 2023, Ed and his Wellness Rx management team opened "Pharmacy for the Public Good," America's First Nonprofit Community Pharmacy in Phoenicia, NY.

Ullmann directs a talented staff that blends natural wellness remedies on the premises at the Pharmacy in Tannersville, NY, which are popular and proven very effective.
