Darth OotenDirector of Pharmacy
Dr. Darth Ooten is the Director of Pharmacy at the Redding Rancheria Tribal Health Center. He grew up in rural West Virginia where he completed his undergraduate degree at Marshall University in Huntington WV. After completion he was off to Bernard J Dunn School of Pharmacy at Shenandoah University where he earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy degree.
Later, he and his wife chose to move to Redding as she grew up in California and was eager to return. Dr. Darth began working for the Redding Rancheria in October 2016. He believes Redding Rancheria provides a work/life balance that is unheard of with big box pharmacies. It not only allows us to have a home life but also provides us with a family at work. It also gives us the opportunity to work closely with the providers to optimize the care for our patients and the community we serve.
