All locations are staffed with friendly hometown Pharmacists and associates who know their clients’ needs and strive to serve them well. All locations offer home deliveries and drive through windows. Clients receive their medications while complying with CDC guidelines.
n 2012 Shane saw the need to update his skills by completing a Comprehensive Compounding Course from the Professional Compounding Centers of America. Savage’s Drug included a new compounding pharmacy in their Fairfield location. They are able to personalize medications for both pets and people. Another service they provide are "Pill Packs", which are customized multiple prescription packs providing a safe way to take your medications throughout the day and week.
