You are never too far from one of our highly trained pharmacists. Have a question on a prescription or an over-the-counter drug? Just ask. We're never too busy to help our customers with the trusted advice they need. It's part of our service.
We are located right on campus of many of our hospitals and physician offices. Your physician can fax your prescription to us, and you can pick it up on your way out.
