Welcome To Esterbrook Pharmacy
Conveniently located on the campus of The Reading Hospital and Medical Center
In today's world, most pharmacies have slipped into a business as usual model. We've decided that our position as a local pharmacy isn't going to be the usual. Esterbrook Pharmacy has taken a step back from the mentality of measuring success by the number of customers who come through our checkout. In fact, we're taking a step way back.
The term "pharmacy" comes from the root "pharma" which was actually used during the 15th–17th centuries. In addition to pharma responsibilities, the pharma offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners…"
In most present day cases, the meaning of the word pharmacy has changed for a number of reasons, none that have actually helped out our customers.
Here at Esterbrook Pharmacy, we've decided to go back to the drawing table, back to the history books and study up at the school of "Doing Things the Right Way". It's our customer that is most important, it always has been and it always will be.
