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.
In 2008, Chetan introduced the compounding pharmacy to the community, building a state of the art compounding laboratory upstairs from the general pharmacy below.
In 2023, McKenzies invested in a state of the art Sterile Laboratory that will allow the capacity to provide even more critically important medications for patients in Mt Lawley and throughout Western Australia.
McKenzies Chemist is committed to being a local independent pharmacy with our focus always being on our patient’s needs and providing the highest levels of service. Come in and experience the difference for yourself!
At McKenzies Compounding Pharmacy, we are proud to have Chetan Hegde as our experienced pharmacist and leader. With deep roots in the Perth community, Chetan was raised and educated in Perth, attending Applecross Senior High School before earning a B-pharm degree from Curtin University in 1998.
Chetan purchased his first store in 2000 and subsequently acquired McKenzies Chemist in 2003. It was at this time that his interest in compounding began to grow, and in 2008, he underwent PCCA training to further develop his skills.
Since then, Chetan has attended numerous conferences in compounding, focusing on veterinary, hormonal, and anti-aging medicine. He has a particular passion for finding pharmaceutical solutions for all animals and developing hormonal therapies.
Outside of the pharmacy, Chetan is a passionate advocate for local businesses and charities. He is an active member of the Rotary Club of Mt Lawley, where he has been involved for over six years. He also has a love of dogs and raises money for the Shenton Park Dog Refuge. At home, he owns a giant Schnauzer named Mira and a standard Schnauzer named Monique.
Chetan has watched many of his patients and friends battle cancer and has supported their journey by making generous personal contributions 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
