WHO WE ARE
MEET THE WIZARD
William G. Franklin, MD
-FOUNDER AND MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF VICTORY SELECT
I am NOT with a venture capital firm. I provide real solutions for real patients that are not created out of intent to form another Silicon Valley start-up.
As a healthcare provider since 1983, I started Victory Select to share my lifelong passion for taking care of others. I have since built a world-class team of providers and staff in various specialties to focus on alternative treatment options. My interest in customized medications built for specific individualized needs has fueled my desire to create novel compounds that outperform routine pharmaceuticals. I have an unwavering belief these products should be available to the majority of patients in terms of cost.
I would only create or prescribe medications that I would feel comfortable using myself. I firmly believe in an upward trajectory of human evolution. Utilizing these new and improved supermeds you will regain your lust for life and the stamina of your youth.
My interests aside from medicine include music, art, literature, photography, poetry, and a profound passion for the arts. I feel most blessed when spending time with my love, my 6 children, 1 granddaughter, 5 dogs, and 1 chinchilla.
MEET THE GENIUS
Joseph Drummond, PHARMD
I am a compounding pharmacist and Central Texas native who incorporates pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and my knowledge of genetics in order to optimize patient wellness.
I graduated with a B.S. in Microbiology from UT-Austin, pursued a Master’s degree in Biochemistry at Texas State University, and completed my Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the Texas A&M Health Science Center in 2011. I am a current student of A4M, an organization centered on anti-aging and functional medicine, and work diligently at Victory Medical Center to deliver personalized patient care using a holistic approach.
Over the years, I’ve developed numerous hormone, dermatology, pediatric, pain management and veterinary compounds as a sterile and non-sterile compounding pharmacist. As a published research scientist, I am passionate about utilizing the science of today to create the compound of tomorrow.
When not working to help others, I love listening to music, reading, being outdoors, working on computers and spending time with my wife and two kiddos.
