About Papa’s Farmacia
Papa’s Farmacia is a new locally-owned pharmacy, but we have served the Walker/Denham Springs community since 2004, at the Winn-Dixie Pharmacy until it closed in May 2017, following the Great Flood of 2016. Even after the flooding, we remained dedicated to our local community, providing necessary medications and advice from a FEMA trailer, until Winn-Dixie officially closed.
Not wanting to abandon our patients, we opened Papa’s Farmacia with the vision to be a community pharmacy leading the way in patient recovery and the maintenance of chronic disease. Though, we believe in old-fashioned customer service, we are incorporating new treatment methodologies, including Pharmacogenomic testing, Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services, online ordering, and robotic dispensing systems.
We are a family-owned pharmacy. Let our family take care of yours.

What is Pharmacogenomics and RxGenomix?
Failure rates for medications we depend on can be as high as 75%. Genetic factors account for up to 95% of this variability. A simple cheek swab sent to a diagnostic lab can look at up to 27 specific genes that affect how your body processes medications, predicting an individual’s response to more than 300 medications, including many of the most common.
Pharmacogenomics can be particularly effective for people who are:
- Taking multiple medications
- Not seeing the expected benefits of a particular medication
- Taking cardiac, psychiatric or pain medications
- Experiencing side effects
- Preparing for surgery
