Reed Family Pharmacy is a full service, family owned pharmacy serving the individual needs of patients nationwide. It has occupied the same location at 814 W Broadway in Ardmore for over 20 years. The pharmacy is a "Mom and Pop" operation, as it has been owned and managed by Paul and Rebecca Reed since it opened in March of 1990 as The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy franchise. In 2008, the name changed to Reed Family Pharmacy. At that same time, they purchased the building they reside in and expanded to include education classes, one-on-one counseling, personalized medication compounding and immunizations.
They offer you the personalized service that you and your health deserve. At Reed Family Pharmacy, you're never just a number or a face in the crowd. They want to help you get the information you are looking for so you can make the most educated decisions about what your treatment options are and what is best for you. You'll find individualized attention, advice you can count on and an honest caring about you and the community.
The pharmacy is a more intimate setting than larger chain pharmacies, focusing almost entirely on patient care, first on prescriptions, then on traditional over-the-counter (otc) medications, vitamins, nutritionals and related healthcare items. They are able to know their patients much better because of this.
For nearly a decade, the pharmacy has been a member of PCCA Compounding Centers and has the capability of customizing medications for their patients based on consultations with their doctors. In addition, the pharmacy is an Immunization Center, at this time focusing mainly on Zostavax (shingles) Vaccine, Seasonal Flu and H1N1 Flu Vaccinations. Providing great customer service has resulted in Reed Family Pharmacy achieving accomplishments such as being named a Certified Healthy Business, earning the Gold Seal of Progress Award from the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, Medicine Shoppe Executive Club Sales Award and First Year Franchise Sales Award, among others.

Q: Should I take a probiotic?
A: Yes, especially if you’re on an antibiotic. It also helps boost your immune system and improves digestion. Probiotics are essential to basic human nutrition. Probiotics are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) that are similar to the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in the human gut. These “good bacteria” are used to prevent and alleviate many different conditions, but particularly those that affect the gastrointestinal tract.
Q: What are some general nutrition tips?
A: As recommended by Good Neighbor Pharmacy Wellness Center, Eating habits have a direct impact on a person’s health. A healthy diet helps protect against many diseases, such as obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and certain cancers. Healthy foods also boost the body’s immune system. Furthermore, age-related, harmful effects such as dry and dull skin, falling hair, and declining vision can be delayed by eating a nutritious diet. First, foods should be rich in fiber and nutrients. A range of foods from the vegetable, fruit, whole grain, and protein groups should be included in the diet. Five servings of fruits and vegetables are ideal. Second, a person should eat only enough to satisfy hunger. Third, eating correctly does not mean a person should deprive himself or herself of favorite foods – those foods, if unhealthy, just need to be consumed in moderation. Smart eating becomes even more important for a person who has any known risk of developing or has been diagnosed with high blood pressure, high blood sugar, depression, heart disease, cancer, or other medical illnesses.
Q: What sets Reed Family Pharmacy apart from other pharmacies in town?
