    Just wanted to see if anyone had experience opening an independent pharmacy in California recently. I wanted to see what the application process looked like.

    I found the site application here

    It says give it around 60 days to hear back for approval. I assume an actual inspector has to come out to the site and physically approve the site. Does anyone know how long that usually takes? I had someone tell me there is a 6 month waiting period to get an inspector to come out?!

    Anyone with insight or experience, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Call the board and ask them about the estimated timeline.

    You should also look into hiring an attorney who specializes in pharmacy. Another option may be a consulting firm that work with prospective pharmacy owners.

    Good luck.
