About Allen Pharmacy & Wellness
The dream for Allen Pharmacy & Wellness dates back to May of 2016 when Dr. Deepa Pattani, our pharmacist, wanted to create a place that would treat patients as a whole. Dr. Pattani had seen a trend in the healthcare industry:
Increasing Age = More Medications = Worsening Quality of Life
In order to provide patients and families with the quality of life they deserved, it was very important to help people be healthy while taking the least amount of medications. For the past 2 years, Dr. Pattani helped over 300 patients reduce the number of medications they took. Now, we are determined to help every patient that walks into our pharmacy do the same.
Our goal is to be that one place wellness center for the entire family. We strive hard to bring all the services a person/family needs to live their best life yet!
Our Team Leader & Pharmacist-in-Charge
Dr. Deepa Pattani graduated with a Doctorate in Pharmacy from Rutgers University: Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy in 2004. Dr. Pattani holds an active license as a Registered Pharmacist in 4 states throughout the country and has experience across the board from retail to hospital and everything in between.
Dr. Pattani wanted to start a Pharmacy that could really be a resource to the entire community. Our Wellness model is unparalleled to any other pharmacy in the area. That is because Dr. Pattani has worked in the cities around Allen to truly learn the needs of the community and Allen Pharmacy & Wellness is our attempt at bridging that gap in health care.
Dr. Pattani lives locally in Allen with her husband and 2 boys. In her free time, Dr. Pattani enjoys reading, riding bikes and spending quality time with her family. She enjoys her nachos and margaritas as a true Texan even though she was raised in New Jersey.

“When I was 2, I was diagnosed with celiac disease, extreme allergies, chronic bronchitis, and many skin issues. So I was raised very early on eating strict and healthy and became extremely active in a variety of arts and sports. However, I never began regular weight training until I was 45. At 14 I broke my elbow and severed one of the adjacent nerves. When I was barely 20, in college and only three months into Martial Arts training, I severed the anterior cruciate ligaments in both my knees. I was told I’d never do Martial Arts or any other strenuous type sport again.”
At 53, Monica is continuously raising her own bar as an accomplished black belt martial artist, 2 x World Champion Pro Physique bodybuilder and an executive fire-walking instructor.
Monica’s Lifestyle Solutions Program focuses on fitness, nutrition, and positive mindset as the key to productivity, enhanced energy and long-term good health.
