About Us

At Premier Pharmacy, we are committed to bringing personalized medicines to those who need them, advancing the understanding of disease management, and providing meaningful support to patients and providers who care for them. 

Locally Owned & Operated

As a locally owned business, Premier Pharmacy isn’t beholden to shareholders. We have no outside interests to deter us from our long-term goal of providing value in patient-specific compounded prescriptions. Since the early 1990’s ownership has always kept us focused on what matters most – providing the highest quality compounded prescriptions at the best possible price. Ownership maintains long-standing relations with many of the country’s top ingredient suppliers to keep prices low, and they’re continuously reinvesting in cutting-edge laboratory equipment to ensure that quality is never compromised. 

Personalized Care

Premier Pharmacy is a nationally recognized compounding pharmacy dedicated to providing cutting-edge technology with state-of-the-art equipment developed to help individuals suffering from a variety of conditions. We are contracted with insurance providers nationwide which allows us the ability to provide our patients with treatment for little to no out-of-pocket cost. We work directly with the patient’s insurance provider to file their claim. Once we receive a prescription, a member of our experienced staff will guide the patient through their personalized formulation and conduct follow-up calls during and after treatment. 

Commitment to Quality

Our on-site laboratory has access to over 4,500 active and non-active pharmaceutical ingredients. We only receive active pharmaceutical ingredients from manufacturers that are fully registered by the FDA, DEA and follow current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). Medications are prepared for an identified individual patient based on the receipt of a valid prescription order approved by the prescribing practitioner. 

Charitable Commitment

Premier Pharmacy has enjoyed many good years, but we’ve also seen our fair share of lean years, and it’s these times that help us remain grounded and focused on what really matters – helping patients in the communities we serve. At Premier Pharmacy we’re committed to sharing our blessings and good fortune with others.

Pharmacists' Top Most Trusted Professions

A pharmacist is a highly skilled and trusted medication expert. Pharmacists undergo extensive education in order to understand the role that drugs play in different situations. They are familiar with the biochemical make up of drugs and how that impacts their use, side effects, interactions, and implications of effectiveness. Their role revolves around compounding medications, dispensing prescriptions to patients, conducting health screenings, giving immunizations, and advising on the safe use of medicine.
