Edward Danoff


Edward Danoff is the second generation in the Danoff family to own and run The Medicine Chest. Ed took the reins in 2004 from his father, Jerry. Like his father before him, Ed takes an “old school” approach to the practice of pharmacy – which is all about communication with the patients; customizing medication through compounding; and providing the highest level of customer service.

Ed earned his Pharmacy degree at the University of New Mexico. He also holds a degree in Music Composition. As well as being a pharmacist, Ed is an accomplished song writer and can be seen playing with a variety of bands around the DC Metropolitan area.
