About Us


When we opened Phoenix Wellness Center in 1995, our integrative approach to healthcare was innovative and unique to the San Gabriel Valley and beyond. This philosophy continues today. Our customers and patients have recognized our philosophy of health care combined with the highest levels of customer service by awarding us many honors and awards. Every year since 1995, Phoenix Pharmacy has been voted the Best Pharmacy in the San Gabriel Valley.

Numerous other awards have followed, including Best Alternative Health Resource, Innovative Pharmacy Award, Best Massage Therapy, and Best Vitamin Store. In addition, Jim Avedikian, owner and founder of Phoenix Wellness Center, has twice been selected as Citizen of the Year in the Pasadena area.


Our philosophy is simple: We utilize all disciplines of healing together, to heal more quickly and completely. We blend the wisdom of the ages with modern medicine to heal body, mind, and spirit.
