McKenzies Compounding Chemist is a boutique pharmacy located on the iconic Beaufort Street strip in Mount Lawley. The pharmacy has been a feature on the strip since the early 1950s. It was one of the first pharmacies in Perth. The pharmacy was taken over by Mr Chetan Hegde in 2003. Chetan graduated with a bachelor of Pharmacy from Curtin University in 1998. He bought his first pharmacy in 2000, Priceline Beaumaris which he still owns, before buying McKenzies in 2003.
In his spare time Chetan enjoys traveling and spending time with his two Schnauzers, Claude and Monique.
Chetan is a passionate advocate for local business and charities. He is a proud supporter of the Shenton Park Dog’s Refuge Home, having recently made a personal donation of $1000 in addition to $750 raised from the kind patrons of Mckenzies Chemist. Chetan has always been very highly patient focused and has formed a great bond with the regulars at Mckenzies Chemist. He has watched many of his friends battle Cancer and has supported their journey by making generous personal contributions in the vicinity of $16,000 to the Balya Cancer Self Help and Wellbeing Foundation.
“The Balya Cancer Self Help and Wellbeing Foundation has a profound impact on the survivors, their loved ones, as well as the loved ones of those who lost their battle. It taught them to smile again and to look towards the future. I take pride in the personal contributions made by myself and my patrons, which I believe and hope has made positive differences in the lives of those affected by cancer” – Chetan
