OUR STORY BEGINS WITH BAD TASTING IRON
My name is Patrick Monsivais and I am the founder and CEO of Gensavis Pharmaceuticals. Gensavis was founded in March 2010. Why I started the company was the discovery of a need. I was trying to give my daughter a liquid multivitamin with iron. The smell alone was repulsive and the taste was even worse. I thought to myself, “there has to be something better.” This is where the journey began. I’ve been in the healthcare industry for over 30 years and in pharmaceuticals for over 20. I began making inquiries if there were any better options other than the popular leading brands and there simply wasn’t any. I started this company with more passion than I had revenue, but thanks be to God we persevered and we came out with our brand NovaFerrum. NovaFerrum is something I designed with my own family in mind. When you give your child a dose of NovaFerrum please know this is something I gave to my own child first. I created this product as a caring and concerned parent. Whenever we come up with a new product my very first focus group is my wife and daughter. Once I get the okay from them I then move on to larger focus groups. When I create a formulation for a product I keep in mind this is something I want my own family to take. There is a proverb that reads, “Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred” (Proverbs 15:17). Each product in our product line is a labor of love to me and there were no shortcuts in the making of our products. Larger corporations will often place low cost artificial ingredients and spend millions marketing them but this to me is not a strategy we prefer doing.
Gensavis Pharmaceuticals is not a large corporation built on business models and standard applications, rather it’s a company built on principles of quality and value.That may sound like a cliché but it holds true with our brand NovaFerrum. Our emphasis is quality first. I try having conversations with parents as often as I can. Their feedback is important to me. I want them to have access to us as often as we can be available. I know what it is to be a parent, your whole world stops when your child is not feeling well. Noting else matters but having them get better and hearing them laugh again. We also invested the time and revenue in completing a clinical trial that was conducted at the pediatric hematology oncology division at Children’s Hospital that was published in JAMA. We can now make the claim that NovaFerrum is clinically proven to be safe, effective and well tolerated. There are some supplements that will make this same claim but have no medical based outcomes to back their claim and so we encourage the consumer to be watchful of this.
We also pride ourselves in providing awesome customer service. If for any reason there may be an issue that needs to be resolved please allow us the opportunity to make it right for you. We’re not some large corporation with an emphasis on the bottom line. We are very much like David and Goliath when it comes to our competition. In my opinion, the large companies’ loose site of who their customer is. Even though we’ve grown over the years our building blocks have been with an emphasis to quality and who are customer is. This has allowed us not to lose sight of who we are and why we started this company. I pray I have provided you with some insight on who we are and why this company was started.
