Why choose a locally owned, family pharmacy?

Here to Hear You

Our staff is trained to truly listen to your needs and it's our goal to find the solutions to make your life a little easier.

“We know every prescription has a face and a story, and we take the time to get to know you and your family. Each prescription is for someone’s loved one, and we fill each prescription with the same attention and care we give to our own family. I grew up working in my family’s pharmacy and understand the legacy of good old-fashioned customer service. We care about you, your family, and your health, and we want you to be our customer for life.

We want to reassure patients and their caregivers that they will receive continuity of care throughout all stages of life, regardless of their physical location – at home, in assisted living, or in a long-term care facility.

We deliver caring, compassionate, and efficient service so that you’ll feel confident trusting us with your family’s health. From traditional prescriptions and compounded medications to canes, walkers, and nutritional supplements our pharmacy team will help you find what you need.”

According to Consumer Reports (March, 2014)

“If you’re still going to a pharmacy chain for prescriptions, as do half of our readers, you might be missing out. Independents … earned readers’ top marks for speed and accuracy, courtesy and helpfulness, and pharmacists’ knowledge.” 

Consumer Reports also stated, “Establishing a good relationship with a pharmacist you trust is the No. 1 reason to choose a drugstore”, says Lucinda Maine, CEO and executive vice president of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. “You can and should expect your pharmacist to be both accessible and knowledgeable,” she says. “If he or she is not, then you should take your business elsewhere.”
